Super-Luminous Additive for Starry Effects
Each pot of Starglow Pixie dust contains hundreds of tiny ultra-bright glowing granules, which when charged with artificial or day light, glow just like hundreds of tiny stars.

So what are Glow-in-the-Dark Crystals?
Starglow Pixiedust granules are microscopic photo-luminescent crystals of varying size and shape, which absorb invisible UV energy from existing light sources and then re-emit most of that energy as visible light.
This process happens in real-time so crystals actually glow all the time, just that in normal lighting conditions we cannot see this glow effect, but it does tend to give the crystals a light greenish appearance. Most of the energy stored by the crystals is re-emitted immediately, however some of that energy is retained and slowly released as a gradually diminishing afterglow.
Starglow Pixiedust is heat, solvent and water resistant, which makes them extremely versatile and suitable for use in hundreds of artistic and craft applications.
Starglow Pixiedust is safe and non-toxic, can be recharged thousands of times and will last many years.

Starglow Pixiedust at a glance
Suitable for use with most clear / opaque mediums such as clear paint, epoxy resin, glass, wax, plastic, glue, silicone etc
Starglow Pixiedust can be charged (excited) indefinitely by most forms of natural or artificial light and last many years.
For most ‘starry’ effect applications between 3-10% Pixiedust to medium will produce the best results.
Do not grind or mill the Pixiedust as this will damage its crystalline structure and prevent it from working.
Where possible use against a white background as this will enhance and enrich the resultant glow, where as a very dark background may reduce the glow effectiveness and make the presence of the particles more apparent in daylight.
Pixiedust does not dissolve into any medium it is simply suspended or allowed to settle as a glowing layer.
Pixiedust has a high specific gravity so it will usually settle relatively quickly unless the viscosity / thickness of the medium is high enough to keep it suspended.
The powder can cope with high temperatures (600 C) and so is suitable for use in glass kilns.
Starglow Pixiedust is very durable and long-lived making it suitable for use outdoors as well is indoors.
