A Magical New Art-Form is Born



The World's first  'Multi-Colour' Cosmic Ceiling was created in 2003 by Michael J Blackburn; the founder and Managing Director of GLOWTEC Ltd.

Whilst single-colour first generation 'starry' ceilings (made using dots of glow paint or plastic stick-on stars) had been around for several years, the art form as such had never really progressed beyond this basic effect.

As Michael explains. "I was so amazed at the images coming down from the Hubble Telescope, I just had to see if it was possible to recreate them on my kid's bedroom ceilings. I knew about the stick-on glow stars and glow paint dots on the ceiling, but frankly that didn't float my boat. What I really wanted, was a realistic and colourful cosmic effect on the ceiling, one that would be invisible in the daytime, but glow at night when the kids went to bed." 

As there was nothing like this around at the time and inspired by the breathtaking images from deep-space, Michael set about making his vision into a reality and in so doing, created a whole new art form to reproduce the spectacular colourful cosmic effects of deep space phenomenon, such as cosmic gas clouds and colourful nebulae etc. 

After months of painstaking research and development, using the latest generation of high performance Photo-luminescent ingredients. Michael had finally developed the ideal formulation of daytime-invisible 'coloured' glow paints, that he needed to create the first 'Multi-Colour' Glow-in-the-Dark Cosmic Ceiling, as well as the artistic techniques and special effects he needed to reproduce the cosmic phenomenon.
