It is really easy to buy glowing paint, just like if you were buying glow powder TAT 33. Finished Glow in the Dark Paint is essentially a glow powder added to any transparent medium, usually clear lacquer. People tend to get a glow paint because it is ready for use and doesn't require any extra actions on your part. Some people don't want to buy pure glow powder because they afraid to do something wrong and waste their money.
But in fact, there are more chances you would buy low quality glow paint that was made with cheap Chinese luminophore than if you would've decided to buy pure glow powder.
At Noxton you can buy an excellent quality glow paint that will retain the glow feature of the Glow in the Dark Powder TAT 33 for as long as possible and will be perfect for the given on the label surfaces. However, you can easily make a Glow in the Dark Paint at home. All you have to do is to add some glow powder to the clear lacquer that is suitable for the chosen surface in the ratio 1:3 or 1:4 (1 part of luminescent pigment and 4 parts of lacquer). That's the complete process of making a luminescent paint at home. Of course an option to buy a glow paint from Noxton Company has some more advantages: in this case there will be stabilizers, blowing agents and other compounds in the finished paint but the difference won't be worth abandoning the idea of buying a pure glow powder.
There are no special secrets about how to make a glow paint at home. We can only give you some advice:
1. Find the most transparent lacquer. If you see a clear membrane (without any opacities) after the compound became dry, then you've made a right choice.
2. Try to find a water-based acrylic lacquer. In this case you will need a glow powder that is not hydrophobic, just like Noxton's Glow in the Dark Powder TAT 33. Otherwise you will only make it worse by getting a toxic glow paint.
3. Focus on the medium price group lacquers. Besides saving your money you will get something else as well. Expensive lacquers contain a lot of impurities and additives that can prevent the glow powder TAT 33 from spreading evenly in lacquer. Consequently, the service life of the glow paint will be significantly reduced.
4. It doesn't matter at all if there would be an ultraviolet filter or there won't be one - this fact doesn't affect the glow powder TAT 33 properties anyhow.
Selling of glowing paints still has some undeniable advantages. You save your time, the finished self-luminous paint can be easily used and the service life of the made Glow in the Dark Paint TAT 33 will be equal to regular paint's one.
However this option has some drawbacks as well. Read our answers on frequently asked questions to get more detailed info regarding this issue.
