Orange and red are two of the most special glow in the dark paint colors due to their rarity and much different color than the blue green spectrum you typically get from glow in the dark materials. Both of these neutral colors dry clear for at least the first few coats. Please note that neither color glows for very long. Red glows for about 5 to 10 minutes.
- Glow Time: Less than an hour. Very high initial brightness and color that quickly fade after only a few minutes.
- Material: Strontium Aluminate, Acrylic Paint
- Uses: Canvas, fabric, glass, wood painting. Star ceilings and wall murals.
- 1 ounce = 1 fluid ounce = 30 ml
- Best charged in the sun or with an ultraviolet/black light
Looks good in bottle but not so good in action.
Neutral Red is a specialty glow color, so it does require a stronger charge than most of the other colors we offer and it has a much shorter glow time of less than 1 hr total. This glow time includes both the initial, brightest glow and the 'afterglow' which is much dimmer and is best observed in total darkness with no light pollution. As the glow fades into the afterglow, it will appear to have more of an orange tint, as opposed to the bright red that you see at a full charge. To fully charge this glow color, a UV light with a wavelength of 395+ nm would be best.
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).
We hope this provided some valuable insight! Please feel free to reach out to us for further assistance :)
I haven’t painted with my ArtNGlow products yet, but I tested the glow of my products when they arrived and I’m in love🤩 I love anything that glows, but the quality and brightness of these products is unmatched.
