      Anita’s Glow in the Dark All-Purpose Decorative Craft Paint from the new Hobby Lobby in Somerset, Kentucky about two weeks ago. It was $1.27 plus tax for two ounces. It comes in a plastic squeeze type bottle, which is very handy when using this type of paint.

      I purchased all four color available. Yellow is the brightest and glows the longest, about half an hour. Green glows fairly bright but not for as long, only about fifteen minutes. Orange barely glows for about five minutes. Pink is barely visible and completely disappears in less than three minutes.

      Glow in the dark

      paint is different than ordinary paint, whether it’s latex, acrylic, oil-base or any other kind. This is because it mostly consists of paint medium rather than actual color. It’s actually more like water color by comparison. That’s the nature of this type of paint.

      This may explain why is was so inexpensive to purchase. It’s not very saturated with the glow particles (microns). However, it is just perfect for small, crafty projects. I use mine to paint the inside of jars. Ever heard of a fairy mason jar? They are pretty groovy and very fun to make.

      The label states that you

      can use it on fabric, wood, bisque, artist canvas, plaster and clay. Again, I use mine on the inside of glass jars. I tried painting popsicle sticks with the green and you really have saturate the paint on wood or any other dark, porous material. I have learned with any type of glow in the dark paint, if you don’t see the color on the object before it dries, you will not see any glow effect from that area because it’s mainly the clear paint medium that you are seeing.

      I plan to buy more of this paint. It’s cheap to ...

      let the kids play with this stuff. They love it making tee shirts with it! I’ve used it on small foam cutouts of animals and made a carousel scene inside a huge pickle jar. Very neat!! It even turns. When you shut the lights off, you can see a glow in the dark carousel spinning inside the glass jar. Kids love that too!

      Remember the glow in the dark stars and planets that you put on the walls in the kid’s room? This paint is about as bright as that in the yellow color. The green is like the glow on

      alien heads. The pink and orange are very, very hard to see. Always remember, any paint that glows in complete darkness is contains very inconsistent properties. It will appear brighter in some areas because the actual glow particles in that area are much more saturated. You must keep shaking the bottle for best results. Try to paint it on thick, light colored backgrounds…preferably white.

      This is some fun stuff to explore your true artistic side. Because not only have you created one masterpiece, you have also created a night time scene as well. I wonder if you can paint on a jigsaw puzzle?
