Glow in the Dark vs Fluorescent paint


Glow in the Dark & Fluorescent  – There’s a difference

Glow in the dark vs fluorescent
Glow vs Fluorescent

I hear people say, or ask, quite often, if the paint that I use in my Night Sky Murals or in the DIY stencil kits is fluorescent? I usually ask, “Do you mean Glow in the dark or Fluorescent?” Most of the time I will get an answer similar to this, “Ummm, aren’t they the same thing?”

Actually, they aren’t, so I thought

Born... a while ago. I grew up in the southern part of the San Joaquin Valley of California. We were two hours from Disneyland, two hours from the beach, two hours from the redwoods, and 1 1/2 hours from Dodger stadium. Life was great! It was at the beach and in the redwoods where my love of the night sky was born. Oh, and I love to smoke brisket... Texas-style!

  1. Hi, I'm trying to read your "Glow in the dark versus florescent" article and it cuts off at "Actually, they aren’t, so I thought"
    Could you possibly send me the rest of the text?
    Thank you!

  2. I bought an aqua paint, when I turn on my blacklight it reacts as it should "glowing" BUT its pink not aqua…. what can i do to make it "glow" aqua under the blacklight?
    I have uv reactive aqua in a tiny bottle from a hobby store, I'm trying to recreate that in a large amount.

    Thank you for any and all help. 🙂

    1. Hi Kam… did you get the Aqua paint from me, or somewhere else? You can add the aqua UV reactive additive to it and it might help, but will probably just make a new color. I use blue as the reactive, to UV, additive. Can you get your paint without any additive in it? If so, then you can add the Aqua to that. Let me know if you have other questions?
