Glow in the Dark Paint and Powder

Updated on December 12, 2013

Make Stuff Glow in the Dark?

Do you want to make stuff glow in the dark? Here's a collection of glow in the dark paint, glow in the dark powder and pigment and glow in the dark tape and lots of ideas for glow in the dark projects to make with them.

You can have lots of fun with glow in the dark paint at Halloween or on an evening out, and you can make lots of fun projects for kids too. You can even get glow in the dark face and body paint. Glow in the dark paint and tape also have practical applications for making things visible at night.

On this page we'll look at the various kinds of glow in the dark product you can get and look at what they can be used for. Note that glow in the dark paints and powders require recharging in light. Most glow in the dark products will recharge in daylight, but black light (a kind of UV light) is the most efficient way to recharge them. Note that products marked as blacklight reactive actually need to be in blacklight to glow (good for parties and raves.)
