Given that everything I have read about the red glow coloring in general, I was shocked at how lovely this product worked.
I used this powder with a clear gloss medium, and charged with a UV light, and it is stunning. I bought it in conjunction with the orange glow paint, and found that I liked the color on this slightly better for the look I was trying to go for (Love the orange too, this just worked better for me).
I tend to try products out on various items when I first get them before writing reviews, so I can give as honest of a review as possible. I have included pictures below as to the various tests I did with the product.
The cameos were done with one coat of the mixed product, with a black background, and a white enamel base. (Sorry for the blur, my camera had difficulty with the glow brightness). The dots are on a semi-clear background, with no paint other than the glow paint. With more paint applied, these lit up wonderfully and glowed a good deal of time.
I used this also in a mixed media project I am currently working on. I love how when applied, it almost looks like fire. (you can see hints of other glow paints in the picture as well). This is a canvas backing. I like to "dot on" some additional powder in spots that I want to appear a tad brighter, but 97% of this is just the powder mixed with the clear gloss medium.
I am going to be ordering some of the pre-made paint in the future to see how I like it, but regardless, this powder will always be close by for me, as the color is amazing, and it performs fantastic.
The red glows really glows red. I drop clumps of it in resin so it will encapsulate and create stars in my pieces. In the pictures below I mixed it with florescent pink to enhance the effects of the paint. The pictures are lights out and lights on. You can watch the whole process of the painting, including using Art 'N Glow resin on YouTube at Charlotte Strong Art Creations or on my website at https://strongartcreations.com On my website on to blog, and you will find the videos. It is amazing glow powder.
I have used the glow powders and they are incredible. They glow bright and hold their glow. I am looking forward to trying out the resin.
I'm going to be recommending this like crazy. It's so hard to find a cosmetic-safe red glow powder, and this one has worked beautifully in SFX makeup. It goes on smoothly, and as long as it's coated with a setting spray or clear spray paint, it stays in place nicely. It has yet to cause any adverse reactions. It doesn't glow for very long, but few reds do; I keep a small UV light in my pocket for a quick recharge every so often. I've been using this to simulate glowing red blood, and the powder mixes very well with rigid collodion and several types of gel blood. It doesn't mix well with liquid latex, but it can be coated with liquid latex and glows through.
