For a person who likes to have almost anything homemade, this simple procedure of making glow paint can add to his list of how-to-do things. With this process, anyone can design projects, do crafting and artwork, paint walls, or paint on t-shirts. There are many other possible things you can do when you mix your own glow paint. To start, you will need glow in the dark powder, clear paint medium, spatula and a mixing bowl. Use spatula and mixing bowl that are non-metal.
The following are the three simple steps to make a glow paint:
In a bowl, pour the clear paint medium followed by the glow in the dark powder, mixing the two very well. Use only half of powder and half of the paint medium. Avoid using color paint so as not to dampen the luminosity and dim the glow.
Paint a white background on the place where you intend to do the painting
Use the paint within an hour or as soon as the mixture is done, because the glow in the dark powder settles down on the base of the mixture and losses its brilliance. It will be better if someone else can continue stirring the mixture while you are working on your project.
Any unused paint should be thrown away and do not let your children play with it.
Using homemade glow paint can put a special effect to your projects like childrens Halloween costumes, bedroom walls and give away items. The homemade glow paint may not be as perfect as the commercial paints bought from stores, but the self satisfaction you get out of doing it on your own is already enough. You can also introduce this process to your friends and your group can do your homemade glow paint during your spare time, thereby promoting friendship and camaraderie.
You can apply homemade glow paints to your body, but to be on the safe side, you are advised not to do it. People have different reactions to chemicals and it may be possible that you can experience skin problems when the chemicals got to your skin.
