This special color is white during the day and glows a bright, vibrant red in the dark after being charged. This color is so rare that most glow in the dark suppliers don't even offer it!
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).

This is probably the best red GITD powder I've found, I love how deep the red is. Picture is after using the included uv light keychain for 3 seconds before turning the lights off. Their aqua powder is next to it for comparison.
The color is a good, deep red, which was a relief as other brands will appear more orange or pink.
However, the glow is quite weak. After charging in the sun for 20 minutes, the glow will diminish in seconds once no longer exposed to UV radiation. Charging via other light sources, like a grow light or flash light, does next to nothing.
The glow is a great red
Ive been searching for a good glow in the dark red. Its so hard to find one that actually glows red and this one does and its a deep red.
Good quality powder. Dry as a bone. Good packaging. The bags they’re in are thick plastic which is appreciated so they don’t rip themselves open at the seams when you work them. The red in particular has a much brighter glow than I anticipated and it also has a very short charge time. Which is also good. Overall, I’m pleased.
