A method produces a conductive paste comprising 15-20% by weight of PDMS and 80-85% by weight of metallic micro-nano particles, wherein the conductive paste is obtained by repeated addition of singular doses of PDMS to a heptane diluted PDMS low viscosity liquid containing the metallic micro-nano particles, wherein the heptane fraction is allowed to evaporate after addition of each of the singular doses of PDMS. A method forms a conductive path on a support layer, wherein the conductive path is encapsulated by an encapsulation layer comprising at least one via through which at least one portion of the conductive path is exposed, the method comprising filling the at least one via with the conductive paste.
