In the daytime, the powder appears red. Once charged by UV light, the powder puts off a brilliant red/orange glow. We offer a range of purchase options from 10 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!
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 mixed.
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, if red glow powder is mixed with a dark shade of color pigment such as black, the glow will be greatly reduced.

It is a good product for the most part but I noticed that all of the glow powders glow green when hit with lots of UV at once (high powered blue laser). I wished it would have emitted a bright red when over charged but oh well, it is what it is. I will probably buy more but I may just get orange next time.
