Do's & Don'ts

STARGLOW Luminous (glow-in-the-Dark) Paint is not like ordinary paint so here are the main do’s and don’ts:

Do…

  • Order a 30ml sample jar to test the paint is suitable for your purposes first!

  • Stir well before each and every use.
  • Apply over a white background.
  • Ensure surfaces are white-primed (ideally) and free of dirt/loose bits, grease and oil etc.
  • Apply protective top-coat if wear ‘n’ tear or excessive contact is likely.
  • Apply 2-3 uniformly applied coats and allow each time to cure before applying the next.
  • Be sure to read ‘How to use our paint‘ to understand the nature and limitations of the paint.
  • If unsure, email or call our Expert Helpline to discuss any specific application you may have.

Don’t…

  • Rely on daylight to charge the paint.

  • Apply over a black or dark background
  • Use on surfaces that will get hot!
  • Use on skin or hair!
  • Mix with any other paint!
