In the daytime, the powder appears off-white. Once charged by UV light, the powder puts off a brilliant orange glow. We offer a range of purchase options from 15 grams to one kilogram for your specific needs.
Ten grams will be enough to make approximately 10 rings or similar projects. Manufacturing techniques may differ, so keep that in mind!
The glow powder can be mixed with color pigments to create your own unique shade, or it can be left uncolored to provide a brighter glow. If you mix it with pigment, it is recommended that you perform color samples with your selected adhesive because the color will change slightly when whetted.
Orange and red glow powders are not as strong in comparison to our greens, blues, and other colors. See below for more info on this. They are also much more expensive to produce and therefore cost more than our other colors. Orange and red glow powder are more dense, so vials contain about 14g instead of 10g.
Most light sources will charge the glow powder. You can use the light on your phone, lightbulbs in your home, etc. But for best results, use a UV flashlight or direct sunlight.
Once charged, the powders put off a bright glow which gradually decreases in intensity over the next 4-8 hours depending on how thoroughly the powder was charged.
We use pure glow powders with absolutely zero additives or fillers. This is critical because even slight amounts of impurities will greatly reduce the intensity of the glow.
Different colors provide different glow brightness! Keep this in mind when making your color choices or when mixing with color pigments. As an example, it is very difficult to mix red glow with a dark color pigment and have much resulting glow.
