STARGLOW Colours brings a fusion of Glow-in-the-Dark and UV Fluorescent technologies
So what are fluro-luminescent powders?
These mid-performance, triple-glow powders have a fluorescent pastel colour in normal / daylight and will absorb invisible UV energy from existing light sources and then re-emit most of that energy as a visible glow in darkness.
This light-charging process happens in real-time so the powser is actually glowing all the time, its just that in normal lighting conditions we can only see the fluorescent daytime colour, not the glow effect. The energy the crystals do not re-emit immediately, is retained and slowly released as a gradually diminishing afterglow. Starglow Colours Powder can be recharged thousands of times and last many years and is heat, solvent and water resistant, which makes them extremely versatile and suitable for use in hundreds of safety, commercial, artistic and craft applications.
Starglow Powders are safe and non-toxic, can be recharged thousands of times and will last many years.

Starglow Colours at a glance
Suitable for use with most clear / opaque mediums such as clear paint, epoxy resin, glass, wax, plastic, ink, glues, silicone, nail polish and screen printing ink etc
Starglow powder can be charged (excited) indefinitely by most forms of natural or artificial light and last many years.
For most applications between 15-30% powder to medium will produce the best results.
Do not grind / mill the glow powder as this will damage its crystalline structure and prevent it from working.
Always use against a white background as this will enhance and enrich the resultant glow, where as a dark background will reduce the glow and impede the powders’ effectiveness.
Glow powder does not dissolve into any medium it is simply suspended or allowed to settle as a glowing layer.
Glow powder 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 powders are very durable and long-lived making them suitable for use outdoors as well is indoors.
