This glow in the dark paint is true blue! Unlike other glow paints labeled as "blue," our pure blue glow paint is specially formulated to produce a vivid blue glow instead of green blue.
It has the color closest to the stars in the night sky, closer than any of our other glow paints including the ultra blue. 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 pure blue glow paint glows longer than traditional glow in the dark products. Its rich blue glow will last for 2 or more hours while appearing almost clear 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.
