This phosphorescent pigment is purple during the day, bright purple under ultraviolet light, and glows bluish purple in the dark.
All of the glow powders sold by Art 'N Glow are encapsulated which means that they can be used in both solvent and water based mediums. Some of our competitors sell non encapsulated powders that will deteriorate in water based mediums (such as acrylic paint medium).

I buy nothing but ArtnGlow powders. They r bright and affordable!
works well for what i do, takes a good initial sun charge to really wake up but after that glows like crazy
Love it. Don't have to use a lot.
Purple fluorescent powder doesn’t really glow all that great.
We appreciate your feedback :)
Due to their unique crystalline structures, each glow in the dark color has a different maximum brightness and glow time. Fluorescent Purple glow powder is made with neutral dark blue glow powder, which is the most difficult color to charge. Many times people think the powder is defective, but in reality, they are just not using the appropriate light source to charge it. Once they use the correct light source they see that it does in fact glow vibrantly:)
Purple glow/light emits a much higher wavelength than other colors, so it does require a bit of a stronger charge than shades of blue or green. We recommend using a full spectrum UV light (like the sun or specialized lamps) to charge your glow powder to its fullest potential. The UV lights with a 365 nm wavelength and smaller battery-operated UV lights with a lower energy supply may not charge your glow powder anywhere near its full potential.
