This amazing glow paint is white during the day and luminesces pure white at night. The first few coats go on completely invisible when viewed under normal light.
This paint is made from a combination of aqua and red glow powders that are fused together under extremely high temperature and pressure to produce true white. These additional steps are what makes white a truly special glow in the dark color and also why the powder costs about 3 times as much as regular glow powder!
The moon, bubbles, and eyes of the Octopus were done in white in the attached images.
Pro Tip: In pictures of space, use aqua paint for stars and white for the moon. White is also great for adding dimension with highlights.

I wanted to use this paint to clear coat rhinestones for a project I was working on. It worked wonderfully and the true color helped to make an amazing design. I’m attaching pics of the project; the Virgo constellation on a box lid by day and in the dark. Wonderful. The swirl is created using your powder. I’m very happy with ArtnGlow.
I needed to make a fake flower (fabric) glow white for part of a gift. I’m so glad I found this company. The paint had nice consistency, didn’t burn when I got some on my skin, and it doesn’t have a strong odor. Came out great and I still have paint left over for other projects! Amazing, would recommend!
I bought the paint based on an online recommendation for a night gun sight. The paint does not retain its glow long enough to be useful for that purpose. Otherwise it gets five stars.
It only takes a few minutes of charging for the glowing effect to be visible. However, working with glow in the dark products outdoors can be a little tricky, since there are a few hours between when the sun goes down, and when it actually gets dark enough outside to see the glow. These products are best appreciated in complete darkness, with minimal light pollution.
It is true that lots of our glow colors are so bright shortly after charging that you can see them even in a well-lit room, but once the charging source goes away (the sun in this case) they start transitioning from their brightest output to their afterglow stage. The afterglow is what is commonly referenced as lasting 6 to 12 hours for strontium aluminate pigments like the ones we sell. During this afterglow stage, you probably need to be in a very dark environment to see the glow at all, due to the glow fading and the fact that your eyes are much more sensitive once they are adjusted to the dark.
We would suggest having a UV flashlight or similar UV light source handy to quickly and easily charge your glow product after dark.
I've tried both the glow powders and now the glow paint and I cannot get this product to cover the tumbler without big streaks. I've tried several coats, sanding in between layers of epoxy, smooth and rough surfaces. I'm bummed because I really need an even look on my Crime scene glow in the dark tumblers.
Our glow paints are designed to be thinner than regular acrylics, so they go on nearly transparent for the first few coats. This allows them to be layered over regular paints to create hidden glowing details in paintings of all sorts! Since most of the glow you will see is actually reflected light, the glow will be much brighter over a white or light-colored background than over a black background. You can also increase the brightness of your glow by applying more coats - we recommend at least 2-3 for the optimal glow, but you can add as many coats as you'd like (allowing 10-15 min for the paint to dry between coats).
Our glow in the dark products are best charged using sunlight, or UV light with a wavelength of 395+ nm. Having a UV flashlight or similar light source handy is great while painting, or to charge your finished painting at will! Regular indoor lighting is typically not strong enough to charge your glow paint to its full potential.
