Important Notes

Before adopting commercially, prospective users of our products are advised to firstly purchase a sample in order to fully evaluate the product’s suitability for purpose.

Starglow paints are made fresh to order and therefore large orders may incur an extended lead time for production. If you have an urgent requirement, please contact us to obtain lead time estimate.

Glow-in-the-Dark / luminous paints are not really suitable for outdoor use or where daylight is the only source of energy for the paints to obtain their charge. We recommend the use of a mains-powered Black light to ensure a maximum charge and best glow performance.

Starglow SMART Paints are essentially decorative in nature and are therefore unsuitable for use as a floor paint or any situation where the paint will be exposed to excessive wear or physical contact.  We recommend using a clear Polyurethane protective top-coat if there is any risk of wear and tear.

For best results, always apply over a white or white-primed surface.  The darker the background colour the weaker the glow!

If you are unsure of how this paint works or its suitability for your purpose, please email or call to discuss first and / or order a sample to try.

We do not supply aerosol based paints, however our paints may be used with a good quality spray gun or a suitable airbrush. Where paints require thinning down for use in spray equipment, you may use a little water to achieve this. Only use a little so as not to impair the paints suspension and binding capabilities.

Starglow paints are non-stock items made fresh to order and therefore cannot be returned.

For for best results use within 6 months of receipt.

These paints are NOT suitable for use on skin.

10 year Guarantee does not apply to Starglow Paints used externally.

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:


  • 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.


  • Rely on daylight to charge the paint.
  • Assume any light will charge it!  It requires UV rich light to properly charge the paint
  • Use outdoors other than in a very dark / shadowed area where there is NO light
  • Apply over a black or dark background
  • Use on surfaces that will get hot!
  • Use on skin or hair!
  • Mix with any other paint!

About Consistency

To ensure your paints are fresh when you receive them, we make them to fresh to order.

We have now further improved our service to include your preference of paint ‘thickness’.

  • THIN  –  A Soup-like consistency, not thickened (thin) best for use in a spray gun or air brush.
  • MEDIUM  –  A Yogurt-like consistency, best all-round choice for most brush or roller applications.
  • THICK –  A Custard-like consistency suitable for dipping or dabbing as well as brush application.

STARGLOW Paints are Made-to-Order and therefore non-refundable and non-returnable.

Therefore we strongly recommend you order a sample to test suitability for your purpose.

UV Charging

Luminous ‘glow in the dark’ paint requires charging with invisible UV light which it then converts to visible light (it’s glow) in real time. However, we are unable see the affect in daylight as it is too weak.

Once charged on UV light, the paint will glow brightly for a short period then settle into a dimmer but longer lasting glow, diminishing gradually over time.

This cycle can be repeated indefinitely as the paint is recharged over and over again.

If after being charged by normal room lighting your glow paint only produces a dim or short lived glow, it means the current lighting is unsuitable for charging the paint. This may be because the lights are too weak or they do not emit sufficient UV energy, or both!

In such cases we suggest purchasing a plug-in UV black light bulb to replace a ceiling light, or if that is not possible, a mains powered UV black light unit.  The UV light be turned on 20 minutes or so before bedtime in order to energise the glow paint before lights out.

This should produce a dramatic (and WoW inspiring) improvement which should last all night long.

Important Note:
You should not rely on daylight to charge your glow paint, as it takes 2-3 hours for day to turn into night, during which time the energy being absorbed by the paint diminishes rapidly, but its glow does not!  The consequence of this means that by the time it actually becomes dark, the paint will have exhausted its stored energy and only able to produce a low-level dim glow.

EU & International Orders

As of July 1st 2021 there are new EU rules on how VAT is charged for online / web orders.  As a result, orders originating from any EU country below a net value of 150 Euros / £135 will now have VAT added at the prevailing rate of that country. We therefore have a £136 Minimum Order Value for Private (Non-Business) EU orders.

NOTE:  Whilst we will not add VAT to your order, VAT and Customs charges will be payable once the goods have arrived in your country.

EU Businesses with a verifiable VAT and EORI number will not be affected by this change and may contact us directly if they need to place an order below £136 net, however, we do have a standard £50 net Minimum Order Value for ALL EU and International orders.

We will only ship EU and International orders at the Buyers risk. Once the goods are handed over to the courier they become the buyers property and responsibility.

For reasons of security and speed, we only ship EU and International orders via Express Courier.  Delivery charges are calculated at checkout.
