Best Types of Glow in the Dark Paint
Glow in the Dark Paints
If you want to use glow in the dark stickers to decorate a room, but there isn't a pre-made glow in the dark sticker that appeals to you, you can always make your own custom ones using glow in the dark paint. You don not need to limit your creativity to stickers either; glow in the dark paints can be used to create many different phosphorescent objects.
There are various different types and colours of paint, including those that can be sprayed onto a surface from an aerosol and those that require applying with a brush. The ones being looked at here are those suitable for applying to surfaces, rather than skin or clothes, although some may work on fabric as well as other surfaces.
Some things you may want to look for when choosing a glow in the dark paint are the length of glow of the paint and whether it is clear or coloured.
