 + 
 +We put the stencil on the skin and used the conductive ink to fill in the traces. We waited for the ink to dry before peeling off the stencil. However, when peeling off the stencil, the some of the ink stuck to the stencil and therefore didn't paste onto the skin. We tried to salvage this as much as possible by using water to help detach the ink from the stencil. 
 + 
 +Once the stencil was fully off, we measured the conductivity with the multimeter. Because the ink tended to crack when it was dry on the skin, the connection was disrupted and thus did not conduct. However, the conductivity was fine in places where it was not cracked.
