Tips for Painting Rocks with Glow in the Dark Paint

While playing around with my new paints I learned quite a bit about what works… and more importantly, what doesn’t. You can watch me use these paints in the video below, but if you don’t have time here are the main take-aways you need to know.

  • This paint works best on white. If you are using a darker stone first give it a white matte base coat. You can also paint on white stones!
  • It has a thinner consistency, so make sure to give it a few coats of paint!
  • The glow will be the brightest after being exposed to light, so charge it up before testing it out in the dark.
