This is the weather-proof version of the standard ultra blue solvent-based paint. The glow color is an aqua-blue and pleasingly unique.
Use it to complement the color scheme of a room starscape or to create the starscape! You can also decorate toys and models for night time fun, or accent your car for special effects at night. Let your imagination and creativity run wild! For tips on using glow-in-the-dark paints, visit our techniques and hints sheet.
The solvent-based ultra blue is extremely bright, second only to the ultra green glow paint for initial brightness. Its greenish blue glow is a closer match to the color of stars in the night sky, and it glows for 8 or more hours while appearing nearly clear with a white-green tint in daylight.
Photoluminescent materials absorb light energy as electrons in their atoms are boosted to high energy levels by absorbing individual light quanta, or photons. Instead of dropping back to where they originally came from, though, these excited electrons transfer to a nearby, intermediate energy level and keep much of the photon energy. Dropping back from this intermediate state, called a metastable state, to ground level is slow going. As these metastable electrons gradually drop back to ground level, they release the rest of their energy as the visible glow we see.
