Wildfire Phosphorescent Paint glows a pale "ghostly" green for several minutes after being exposed to light. It's the classic "glow in the dark" paint. Under white light, it appears a greenish white. But under black light it glows very intensely, making it similar to the Wildfire Invisible Paints...except that it continues to glow after the lights are turned off!
Mix small amounts of non-fluorescent paint to create a stunning shift in color from visible to black light. (Keep in mind mixing with non-fluorescent paints will dim the effect. Always test mix with smaller quantities and test under black light.)
Wildfire Luminescent Paints can be applied to just about any surface as long it's properly cleaned and primed. Use flat white paint such as Titanium White to prime the surface. (Darker base coats will dim the fluorescent effect.)
These paints are best if used indoors, but they can last for a few months outdoors depending on the degree of direct sunlight and exposure to the elements. We recommend they be used outdoors only for temporary applications.
Wildfire Paints are water-based and completely non-toxic.
If you are using an LED black light...
Nearly all UV-LED products currently on the market, including Wildfire's LED BlueBar, have a peak wavelength of 385-400nm, which isn't ideal for creating the best and brightest UV effects. There are three reasons for this...
At 400nm, a lot of visible violet light is produced, which means the effect isn't as powerful as it would be in complete darkness.
At 400nm, most invisible fluorescent materials (such as Wildfire Invisible Luminescent Paints and Clear Top Coats) do not respond well—if at all.
At 400nm, even visible fluorescent colors will shift slightly due to the violet and blue visible light produced.
For the perfect "Wildfire Effect", you'll need true 365nm black light, and lots of it.
