Frequently Asked Questions

"Here's how you can pick an appropriate party theme. If you have kids that love computers and science, then they might enjoy a party full of those topics. If your kids are into sports, then they might like a party with that as the theme. Of course, you can just go with the popular movie of the year or last month by picking out what's hot right now. Try to consider what your favorite party memories are too so that you can try and make them happen again with these themes.

When planning a party, consider the age of your kids as well as their interests. For example: would your kids enjoy a Mickey Mouse party? Would they prefer an 80's themed gathering or a classic fairy tale theme? With so many different possibilities to choose from, it can be hard to decide on the best option. But with just a little research, you'll likely find something suitable for all your guests. Let's take the example of a Paintball party.

Paintball is the sport of shooting small soft-plastic pellets at players wearing protective coveralls, which protect them from injuries.A paintball party is an excellent activity for kids at any age and is an ideal alternative to more dangerous activities such as playing war games (of which there are a number).

If you want to host a paintball party, consider hosting a target practice event too. Your guests will also be able to enjoy the same exhilarating thrill of being shot at."

There are many tips and tricks that you can use in order to make your party go smoothly. For example: spending time planning the party from start to finish, making sure all the kids enjoy themselves and staying on top of any last-minute details will ensure a perfect time for everyone.

Consider the personality of your guests - if they are Introverts or extroverts, great conversationalists or wonderful listeners and what age group do they fall in. To make your party a success, each of your guests should be made to feel welcome and at ease.

Decide the purpose of the party - Is it for socialising with friends? Having a good time? A celebration or memorial? Planning a menu around the purpose will help you to accomplish your goals.

Planning is an essential factor in making a great party. It is important to know what you want when you start planning. Try out some of the things you want to do before the big day arrives.


The social event of choice for most children in late elementary and early middle school is going to a birthday party. However, not all birthdays are celebrated with a lot of joy and fun in order to make the event memorable, so plan accordingly.

Birthday parties at different ages always have their own unique aspects that need to be considered when planning a birthday bash. An age-appropriate activity is crucial as well as having enough supplies and decorations that are appropriate for your child's age group. 

Birthday parties are perfect for children of all ages, so it is important to stay on top of your party supplies. This includes food, games, decorations and more.

Decorations can really set the mood for your party. You can use party decor items as a chance to express yourself or even create a story piece that kids will enjoy reading.

There are a multitude of creative themes you can pull from when decorating your party space. You can also go the opposite way and use the one thing you love in your child's room or around the house as decoration at their birthday party to help set the theme.

The difference between a BBQ party, a grilling party and a potluck party is that in the first two types of parties, people have to bring their own food to cook at the same time everyone else is cooking. This means you can cook what you want when you want it. In the third type of party, guests are expected to bring pre-cooked meals for everyone else.


Let us elaborate on this further.

The idea behind a BBQ party lit up by LED party lights is for everyone to bring their own foods. They not only compete to make the best meal, but they also have fun doing it. The point in a grilling party is pretty much the same as in a BBQ one, except that people are typically more relaxed and they're not used to hearing someone scream "I'm on fire!" every now and then. In a potluck party, people are obliged to bring their own food and share it with everybody else.

Planning a romantic anniversary party can be a challenge, but these awesome tips will make it easier to create a night your spouse will remember.

Props: Add candles to the room and have music playing in the background. You could also hold a tea party or cook together in the kitchen.

Create an interesting date night: The key to having an amazing anniversary is keeping things fresh. Get together with your spouse and decide what you would both like to do. Try a new restaurant, see a movie, or even go stargazing.

Plan it in advance: You'll want to set aside plenty of time to plan a great anniversary party. This way you can focus on each other instead of rushing around trying to get everything done.

Write down your memories: Get a piece of paper and write down all the things that come to mind when you think of your spouse. What are some key memories you've shared? Put these things into words and share them with each other as part of your anniversary celebration.

Who says you can't have a little fun with your party theme? How about a "girlie night" fete complete with lots of pink and tulle? Invite friends to dress up like their favourite old-time movie star and serve "diamonds and earrings" (fruit juice, of course) as refreshments. You can also execute some really fun ideas which are mentioned below:


-Decorate a large box for a centre-piece; line the bottom of the box with black felt and cover the inside walls with pink paper. Suspend candles from your ceiling to light from within each box; use clear fishing line to hang them. Use tissue paper to cover the outside of the box and add a sign that says, "Glamour Girls" or "Relax, Girls—no boys allowed." Put out some bubble bath for guests who want to re-create their own scene from movies.

-Turn your room into a posh hotel lobby by adding red carpeting on the floor. Create registration desks and chairs at one end of your room. Turn your chairs into new ones that are just a little different and then spray-paint them in satin silver hue. Put out a welcome sign on the wall, complete with a bell on it and a room number.

-A "High Heels Only" sign can be quite humorous and prevent someone from showing up in boots or sneakers. Make lots of signs, including "We have a fresh pair of heels for you," "Warning: High heels ahead," and "Thank you, ma'am; may I take your coat?" Wear shoes that are always two inches and not too high for the party. (Wear flats when serving guests)

These are some incredible ideas which you can use for a girl's birthday party.

Always take the time to organise before everyone arrives. The best way to ensure everyone has enough room in the house is to plan ahead and make sure the space is organised beforehand.

If you're hosting a large party, or just want to keep yourself organised during the party, there are some things you can do in order to make everything run smoothly. The biggest thing is that before the party starts setup your food and drinks on one of the sides. This will make it easy for guests to help themselves without having to go searching for their favourite beverages and snacks. Similarly, set up a table with your paper goods and other small essentials near the entrance so people don't have too much of a trip back and forth when they first arrive at your home. Lastly, an open bar makes for an efficient night with less work! Guests can help themselves without having to ask where everything is located.

If you're planning an outdoor barbecue event, there are a few things that you can do to make the party atmosphere even better. One of these is finding the perfect playlist with upbeat music that will totally set the mood. Another idea is having some festive décor, like balloons and tablecloths. Lastly, if you want some extra flavour to your party food, consider adding barbecue sauce or hot dogs to them! Sure it might seem like a lot of work for what ultimately boils down just to food on a grill and people chatting around a picnic blanket, but it will give your party that special edge that everyone has been looking for. A lot of people might think that planning a barbecue party is really easy, but really it's not. It takes a lot of hard work and thought to make the event perfect. For example, creating the perfect playlist is not just about putting on some random album with a few songs that fit the mood. It's about finding music that will totally set the tone for your party. Some possible genres include classic rock and roll, pop, rap, or even blues if you want to keep it low-key. If you have all of the music ready to go, you can then get started with planning. If you're going to decorate your party, try to do so in a manner that celebrates the season, like using Spring colours or Halloween décor. Of course, if you're having it at night and sending everyone home as the sun rises, then it doesn't really matter what colours you use for your decorations.

If there's one thing that should be included in your outdoor barbecue event, it's food. It's not a party without food, after all. But you don't want to just stick to the old hot dog and hamburgers.

Try adding some hot dogs to your menu, or even barbecue sauce if you want a special kick. It's all up to you!

A cocktail or dinner party is bound to be a more engaging affair when the guests are enjoying each other’s company. But what if you don’t know any of the party-goers? It can be difficult to create conversation on your own, especially if there are only one or two people who want to talk. And then you end up with that insufferable stand-off where two people are jabbering away but never include anyone else in the discussion.

Icebreakers are, for lack of a better word, intended to get things moving at parties. They can turn an awkward situation into an enjoyable one with the simple pleasure of getting someone else talking about themselves or their life right off the bat.

An icebreaker gives the focus of the discussion a change, rather than always being on you. I’m not sure if that makes sense, but for example: at a party, if you are the only one speaking to your host or hostess, it can be considerate of you to eventually include another person in the conversation. That way, your interaction doesn’t give off the impression that your entire party life consists of just chit-chatting with one person.

It’s just good manners.

Some people may find it easy to walk up to someone and strike up a conversation (some people are naturally more social). But, if you’re someone who doesn’t feel comfortable with that, there are some icebreakers that are easy to use and a lot of fun.

Here are a few:

1. The Most Interesting Game in the World – Everyone gets a turn to be the leader and thinks of something interesting about themselves. It can be anything: your favourite place you’ve travelled to, what you did for a living before you retired, etc. And then each person has to guess who it is that’s being described. Sounds simple enough and it gets people involved pretty quickly because they have a chance to find out who their friends are by guessing correctly. This game works when there’s only one person who goes first (the leader) but you can have more than one person go at once if that’s too easy for everyone else to guess correctly.

2. Name that Tune – You know how you can play a song on iTunes, and then everyone has to guess the song? Well, this is a variation of that game. Just give everyone a few seconds to think of something that is random or strange that they have done in their lifetime (the more bizarre, the better). Then make everyone guess what the song is! People get really into it because they try to manipulate the pitch and tempo of their guesses so as not to appear too obvious. It’s even funnier if you play an obscure tune as someone is guessing for other players.

3. Telephone Game – This is another good one for a small group of people. It’s kind of like a scavenger hunt, but you don’t have to do anything other than sitting around and talking. Someone will begin by saying something interesting about themselves. For example, “I have a tattoo on my shoulder of an eagle with a knife in its mouth.” The next person then says something that they heard the person before they say (not what they just said), and adds something to it. So for example: “I once rode a bicycle across Canada in the summer by myself. It led me to meet my ex-wife, who lived in Vancouver …”

And so on.

The process of planning and hosting a summer party can be daunting. Here are some strategies for throwing a successful party with your family that everyone will want to come back to next year.

Families love summer parties because they allow kids and adults alike to spend time together, have fun, and eat ice cream. But the process of planning and hosting one can be daunting! If you’re feeling overwhelmed or need some help, here are some tips from my personal experience when planning our annual outside fire party:

1) Plan the decorations ahead of time! Most people think about this part last minute but it should go into your plans from day one. What colour theme are you going for? What do you want your home to look like when people walk in? Create a Pinterest board of your favourite ideas and share it with everyone who will be helping decorate the party.

2) Pick your food carefully. Certain foods go better with certain summer activities. Try finger foods like hot dogs, chicken on a stick, cheese cubes and veggies, or even fruit! Don’t forget the ice cream! Sandwich platters are also delicious because they can be eaten on the go while chasing little ones around the backyard. In the winter, a picnic basket is always a great idea.

3) Pick your entertainment. Music and games are great entertainment for kids and adults alike, but what if you’re not sure how old everyone is? Have plenty of age-appropriate games and prizes like table tennis or bubble gum bubbles. I started a bubble gum bubble war for the kids before the party started to get them excited about it. Another option is to have an early morning breakfast with everyone and then play games over breakfast followed by an afternoon game of Pictionary or Buffalo, We Have..!

4) Plan your menu. There are hundreds of great recipes for summer parties on Pinterest, but I love the one from Averie Cooks called “20 Layer Dip that’s perfect for summer parties!”.

5) Decorate. Now that you have the food and entertainment laid out, it’s time to decorate! If your kids have helped pick some decorations ahead of time, they will love helping you decorate. Otherwise, make your own decorations. I like to go big or go home and use 4’x8′ sheets of foam core board and spray paint them with glitter and gold stars. Have fun creating different games with your family- the smaller the better!

6) Don’t forget about the adults! They always have a great time at the fire party and welcome people to join. But they always keep a stash of Corona, Johnny Walker Black, and an assortment of different types of beer laying around.

7) Invite everyone! It’s always important to know who is invited to your party before sending out any invitations. If you’re working on a budget, it’s also good planning on your end.

Enjoy your party. Good luck

If you're planning a wedding of your own, it's time to focus on the many details that will make your day special. A little advice can go a long way, and below are some helpful tips to help you plan your big event of days.

1. Don't wait until the last minute — cut down on stress by putting the bulk of the planning months before your wedding date. In fact, your professional planner should begin to work on the details at least three months before your day, so that you have time to gather all of your guest's information and receive a copy of the final contract before the big day.

2. Assess your priorities in each area. The wedding itself is only one part of a big event; how you create your wedding will impact its success in other ways. You need to be aware that this is a "job" and not a "happening," so consider carefully where the real stress will fall:

a. If you're having a planner and a caterer, do you need to be involved in the details?

b. If it's your home, is there enough room for all of your things as well as enough space for family and friends to relax?

c. Will you have enough help from your family to ensure that things happen when and where they should?

d. Is there a way for everybody to get together at one time — cocktail party, dinner, or dancing—or will you be constantly moving guests around?

e. Will there be opportunities for people to leave without feeling they have missed "the good times"?

3. Consider your attire and what it says about you during your wedding. For example, it is important to plan on something other than white or black. If you're going to wear a strapless dress, consider one with a little more flair. For a formal event such as a wedding, those in black are still appropriate but those wearing white are seen as being "nicer" and showing more class.

4. If you will be giving your guests little gifts at the reception, be sure they are included in the guest list and not just left at the door.

5. When you invite people to your wedding, it's important that you get the names of all of their children since many will not be celebrating the occasion with them in person. You will want to record any new names and dates of birth for any infants or young children that may be present, so your guests know who they are.

6. Tell your parents about the details at least one month before the big day; this gives them time to plan and helps prevent any last-minute changes that might cause more stress than they are worth.

7. Be sure to check with your florist in advance to ensure they have all necessary information and know exactly how you would like the flowers displayed.

8. When you set up your guest list, it is important that you include expectations for all of the guests, whether they are bringing dates or not. If this is an issue, consider making certain accommodations, such as offering a corsage if a woman is dressing up to attend your reception and providing directions for those who may otherwise get lost on the way.

9. If you're having a wedding at home, consider creating a separate room set aside for the pre-wedding party. (This way, guests can get together in their own space with something to do before they head upstairs to the main event.)

10. Consider creating a program book or invitation cards that are all different colours and that include some type of special design. You can find sample templates on the internet or print off your own; it's also okay to do things your own way.

11. Include all of the important information on your invitation cards — what time they should arrive at the church or reception venue and other pertinent hints like those involving childcare providers.

Anyways, to conclude, wedding planning is a huge task, so get started today and good luck with your big day!

What if you want to throw an outdoor pool party but you do not have the money to offer a large room or small house with a private pool? You can make your own backyard into one by constructing a simple pool. With careful planning, it will not cost much money and be completed on the same day. By following these steps, your backyard party will be the best poolside event of all time.

To start, you need to consider the size of your backyard and the pool. If it is large enough for a few neighbours to come, then you can plan on inviting 10 to 20 guests. Also, you have to determine how much space would be available. This will be important once you have decided on the decorations, food and drinks.

There are some steps based on the number of guests who will attend. If there are only ten invited guests, the following things can be determined:

1. Have an area for everyone to sit if there is furniture, or provide extra chairs for those who need them.

2. It is a good idea to have a small table with some drinks options, such as soft drinks and lemonade.

3. It will not be difficult to find out what type of food that your guests want. You can choose from grilled meats and hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and sandwiches.

4. Decorate the area with colourful balloons scattered around the backyard poolside area. It is also good to hang up some tropical printed material on the fence or trees near the location at which you are partying. Overall, keep it simple with just one colour scheme in mind; this will make the party easy to plan and create simultaneously.

5. Last, but not least, have it in the afternoon if you can. This is better for most people as it is easier for them to get time off work and have time with family and friends by their poolside backyard afternoon party.

6. If you are planning on inviting a larger number of guests, then you can leave out the hot dogs and hamburgers, but still keep the sandwiches, chips and other drinks options available to your guests.

7. You may want to put up some simple decoration such as tropical printed material on the fence and trees near your backyard poolside area so that it will be more interesting throughout the event.

8. You can use a table cloth to cover the furniture in your backyard poolside area.

Gather together some friends who like to have fun together, and then start planning your backyard poolside party.

To conclude, the easiest way to throw an outdoor pool party is to have it here in your own backyard and that way you don't have all of the expenses that come along with having a professional photographer and all of the other expenses associated with hosting a large backyard pool party.

It's time to plan your party! But what if you live in a condo with no trees or bushes right outside of your window? What does this mean for hanging decorations and lights outside and around the windows?

Luckily for you, we've compiled a list of ways to hang items from the ceiling and windows inside your home. The first thing we'll do is show you how to use S-hooks to hang things. Here we go:

1. Take an S-hook (this is the type you'll find fixed to a door frame)

2. Grab a 2' piece of rope

3. Tie a knot in the rope's end and make sure it sits in the hook-hole

4. Now take some string or yarn and tie it to the end of your rope if you want a fuller appearance. Your strings don't have to be tied in knots, but the firmer they are, the more secure they will be.

5. Slide the rope through the metal bar that is fixed to your door frame.

6. You now have a way to hang things from the ceiling and windows in your home!

How about hanging lights from above? There are lots of options. Here are some:

Duct tape:  Use duct tape (or duck tape if you have it) to hang things from above

Cotton balls: Cotton balls are not just for cleaning windows anymore! They can be used as a great way of hanging lights from above. Use cotton balls, twine or string, yarn or yarn wraps, dressmaker's needles and plastic hangers; then string these items on a sewing machine needle.

Sugar dough: You can also use sugar dough to make hard plastic decorations with all sorts of lights and angels. Hold the sides of the decoration together with a simple strip of duct tape until you can turn the shafts of your rope or wires inside out; this will keep the sugar dough from spilling out.

Plastic hangers: Sadly, there are not many options for hanging things from above, but you can use one by using a hanger and some spare wire or string. To do this, wrap some wire around the hanger and then wrap that wire around a piece of string or yarn. Use a needle and thread to sew that string or yarn around the hanger.

Tips:  

1. When glueing your lights and decorations on, use only a few small pieces of paper towel or tissue so as not to dent your work. When you are finished with the glue, gently wipe off the excess glue with a soft cloth (like a paper towel or tissue).

2. You can cut out shapes from cardboard or foam for other types of decorations/decorations then glue them on as shown in the above photo.

3. If your party is on a hot day, you can put your lights in a bowl or bucket of water for about 30 minutes to keep them cool.  

4. You can mix coloured lights together for a rainbow effect.

5. Make sure to secure your strands of light using hooks and nails, or clips and glue them onto the wall/ceiling or windows close to each other so they can be easily seen.

6. If you want to hang strings from the ceiling, hang them from the ceiling fan blades while they are not turned on, then turn on the fan so that it holds up your strands of lights and decorations!  

7. If you want to hang decorations from the cool of your home's back porch or covered patio, use a bowl or bucket to put water in and then place your decorations in it. Wait for them to get close to room temperature, then hang them up!

8. If you are planning a party at night, string some small Christmas lights along the sides of the ceiling and windows so that they light up your festivities.

Yes. All our chemical glow light sticks and products come in a sealed plastic case. Even if the outer casing of the glow light sticks or glow light product is somehow punctured or broken open, the chemical contents are non-toxic and non-flammable. Contact with eyes or ingesting of the fluid should be avoided because irritation will result. There is also the possibility of an allergic reaction. Please keep in mind however that under normal use you will never come into contact with the fluid inside the glow light stick. Glow light products are not recommended for children under the age of 5 without adult supervision.
There are four components to most glow sticks & glow products. The first is the plastic outer casing which holds everything together. The second is the fluid that you can see moving around in the glow stick or glow product. The third is the glass ampoule which floats freely in the fluid and the fourth component is the fluid contained inside the glass ampoule. Now that your aware of the components that make up a glow product you will learn how to activate one. To make a glow light product or glow light stick 'glow' you must bend the outer plastic casing enough so that the inner glass ampoule breaks. The two chemicals can then mix together creating the chemical reaction and the glow effect.
Glow Sticks glow from 4 to 24 hours depending on the product type, brand, color and temperature of the environment they are being used in. Typically, the smaller the glow stick, the shorter the glow duration due to the amount of chemical glow used inside the glow stick. Industrial Quality 6 Inch Glow Sticks can last up to 12 hours and Long Lasting Glow Sticks that use a special powder based formula can glow for over 24 hours.
Yes, the warmer the temperature, the brighter the glow stick will glow. The heat will also shorten the chemical reaction time, which is of course the length of time that the light stick glows for. So, for example if you have the glow stick with you in a hot tub, or if you are dancing and you are in a hot room, the glow stick will glow very brightly, but the duration will not be as long as it normally is.


If it is colder, the glow stick will be dimmer and the reaction time will be longer, meaning that it will glow longer. So if you are a scuba diver or hiker using a glow stick to mark something in cold water or cooler temperatures, the glow will not be very bright, but the duration will be longer. However, please note that if the temperatures are very cold, below freezing temperatures, the glow stick may freeze and the glow effect will be limited.
No, once you have activated a glow light product it will glow until the chemical reaction is finished. You can however prolong the life of your glow light stick or glow light product after it has been activated. Stick it into the freezer. Freezing an activated glow light product will slow the chemical reaction. Once you take it back out of the freezer, the glow light stick or glow light product will start to glow again once it reaches room temperature. This technique does not stop the chemical reaction, but it slows the reaction enough that if you put it into the freezer one night and take it back out the next night, it should work fine.
Yes. Chemical based glow sticks are sealed in a plastic tube and are waterproof. Glow Sticks were originally developed by the US Navy as a non-heated, non-sparking light source for illumination. Scuba Divers and the Coast Guard use them in water to make themselves more visible and as a safe dependable light source.


Glow sticks are waterproof, do not use any batteries, do not generate any heat, and can tolerate high pressures, such as those found under water.
With normal use of glow light product this is not a issue, but if you happen to puncture a glow light product and get it on your clothing, simply rinse the area with warm soapy water. If the chemical dries on the clothing it may cause a stain.
Glow light products should be stored in a cool dry place in their original container or package. Heat and humidity will shorten the shelf life of glow light products.
Depending on how they are packaged the shelf life is 1 to 4 years. Glow products kept in foil packaging will last for up to 4 years and items with no foil packaging have usually just over a 1-year shelf life.
The glow light is made of two parts which when mixed together create the chemical reaction which makes them glow.


- 4 g sodium carbonate
- 0.2 g luminol
- 0.5 g ammonium carbonate
- 0.4 g copper sulphate pentahydrate
- approx. 1 litre of distilled water.
- 50 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide.

First, almost any glow in the dark paint you find in a craft store will be of the zinc sulphide variety which barely glows at all if we’re honest. All of our paints are made with our rare earth aluminate powders and are made specifically for use by artists. Whether you are painting a mural, canvas, model, or anything else, our paints go on smooth and dry completely clear when used as directed.
As all of our phosphorescent powders have a waterproof coating, they can be used for any application that you can think of. Our powders can be used in resin, wax, blown glass, plastic, solvent and water based paints, plastidip, rubber and many more applications. To get some ideas of what other people are doing with glow in the dark paint and powder, please check out our project ideas page and follow us on Instagram and Pinterest to see what our customers are doing and upload photos of your own works of art!
The most amazing thing about these glow in the dark powders is that they are derived from naturally occurring elements that are completely nontoxic and definitely not radioactive. The inspiration for our store came from nature and science and we find it amazing what these naturally derived materials can do while being completely safe. Please keep in mind though that just like any other fine powder, you’ll want to avoid inhaling or getting the pigment in your eyes as it may cause irritation.
Our powders are packaged in various sizes of zip lock bags which you’ll definitely thank us for if you don’t use all of your powder in one sitting.M
Our paints are packaged in 1 oz. containers for quantities of 1 to 3 ounces. Any multiple of 4 ounces will be packaged in 4 oz. jars.
We also offer variety packs that are a great way to get a large number of glow colors for not a lot of money. These are offered in sets of 4, 1/6-ounce paint pots.
Due to their unique crystalline structures, each glow in the dark color has a different maximum brightness and glow time. The neutral colors that glow Yellow-Green and Aqua are the two brightest, longest lasting colors available anywhere. You can see more specifics on all of the colors on their individual product pages.
All of our paints are water based acrylics and are easily cleaned up with soap and water when still wet. Once dry, they are difficult to get out of fabric but usually pretty easy to remove from non-porous surfaces such as wood, tile, glass, and even leather and vinyl. Little drops can usually be “picked” off of these surfaces with a finger nail and the remaining residue cleaned up with rubbing alcohol.
Our paints don't have much of an odor and smell just like any other acrylic paint does. Our neutral powders don’t have any smell at all but the colorful pigment in the fluorescent powders does have a bit of an odor to it. Once mixed with a medium like paint, resin, plastic, etc. the smell goes away.
This one is really up to you and we’d love to hear what method works best for you. There are several different ways to paint with glow paint and which one is best will vary from project to project.
The easiest method is to paint over a surface in normal light. With this method, you won’t see the final result until you charge the paint and turn the lights out (a fun surprise in itself) but you can easily embellish existing paintings or images and paint outdoors using this method.
if you want to see exactly what your work is going to look like when it’s done, you’re going to want to be able to see the glow effect in real time as it is being applied. These paints glow for so long that you can sit in a dim room (a small amount of light is ideal so that you can easily see the underlying image), charge the paints with a UV light for a few seconds, and then apply them while they are still glowing. This is probably the ideal middle ground and the method that most people will use.
If you plan to create a lot of glow in the dark art, you may want to invest in a fluorescent black light fixture. You can get a 24” black light for less than $20 which you can position right above your painting. This will keep the paint charged for the entire session and give you a little light to see the underlying image as well even in an otherwise completely dark room. Yet another option that is even cheaper, you can purchase a compact fluorescent black light bulb and screw it into a standard table lamp for a similar effect.
For the best performance, we recommend using either our UV flashlights or sunlight for the fastest, brightest charge. Black light tubes are also great for charging but are less focused than LEDs so may take a little longer (they’re also a lot less convenient).
If none of the above options are available, then holding your item close to a household fluorescent light (tube or spiral) will charge it too.
Most regular LEDs and typical tungsten light bulbs (hot white wire in the middle) do not give off the wavelength of light needed to charge glow in the dark items.

"Here's how you can pick an appropriate party theme. If you have kids that love computers and science, then they might enjoy a party full of those topics. If your kids are into sports, then they might like a party with that as the theme. Of course, you can just go with the popular movie of the year or last month by picking out what's hot right now. Try to consider what your favorite party memories are too so that you can try and make them happen again with these themes.

When planning a party, consider the age of your kids as well as their interests. For example: would your kids enjoy a Mickey Mouse party? Would they prefer an 80's themed gathering or a classic fairy tale theme? With so many different possibilities to choose from, it can be hard to decide on the best option. But with just a little research, you'll likely find something suitable for all your guests. Let's take the example of a Paintball party.

Paintball is the sport of shooting small soft-plastic pellets at players wearing protective coveralls, which protect them from injuries.A paintball party is an excellent activity for kids at any age and is an ideal alternative to more dangerous activities such as playing war games (of which there are a number).

If you want to host a paintball party, consider hosting a target practice event too. Your guests will also be able to enjoy the same exhilarating thrill of being shot at."

There are many tips and tricks that you can use in order to make your party go smoothly. For example: spending time planning the party from start to finish, making sure all the kids enjoy themselves and staying on top of any last-minute details will ensure a perfect time for everyone.

Consider the personality of your guests - if they are Introverts or extroverts, great conversationalists or wonderful listeners and what age group do they fall in. To make your party a success, each of your guests should be made to feel welcome and at ease.

Decide the purpose of the party - Is it for socialising with friends? Having a good time? A celebration or memorial? Planning a menu around the purpose will help you to accomplish your goals.

Planning is an essential factor in making a great party. It is important to know what you want when you start planning. Try out some of the things you want to do before the big day arrives.


The social event of choice for most children in late elementary and early middle school is going to a birthday party. However, not all birthdays are celebrated with a lot of joy and fun in order to make the event memorable, so plan accordingly.

Birthday parties at different ages always have their own unique aspects that need to be considered when planning a birthday bash. An age-appropriate activity is crucial as well as having enough supplies and decorations that are appropriate for your child's age group. 

Birthday parties are perfect for children of all ages, so it is important to stay on top of your party supplies. This includes food, games, decorations and more.

Decorations can really set the mood for your party. You can use party decor items as a chance to express yourself or even create a story piece that kids will enjoy reading.

There are a multitude of creative themes you can pull from when decorating your party space. You can also go the opposite way and use the one thing you love in your child's room or around the house as decoration at their birthday party to help set the theme.

The difference between a BBQ party, a grilling party and a potluck party is that in the first two types of parties, people have to bring their own food to cook at the same time everyone else is cooking. This means you can cook what you want when you want it. In the third type of party, guests are expected to bring pre-cooked meals for everyone else.


Let us elaborate on this further.

The idea behind a BBQ party lit up by LED party lights is for everyone to bring their own foods. They not only compete to make the best meal, but they also have fun doing it. The point in a grilling party is pretty much the same as in a BBQ one, except that people are typically more relaxed and they're not used to hearing someone scream "I'm on fire!" every now and then. In a potluck party, people are obliged to bring their own food and share it with everybody else.

Planning a romantic anniversary party can be a challenge, but these awesome tips will make it easier to create a night your spouse will remember.

Props: Add candles to the room and have music playing in the background. You could also hold a tea party or cook together in the kitchen.

Create an interesting date night: The key to having an amazing anniversary is keeping things fresh. Get together with your spouse and decide what you would both like to do. Try a new restaurant, see a movie, or even go stargazing.

Plan it in advance: You'll want to set aside plenty of time to plan a great anniversary party. This way you can focus on each other instead of rushing around trying to get everything done.

Write down your memories: Get a piece of paper and write down all the things that come to mind when you think of your spouse. What are some key memories you've shared? Put these things into words and share them with each other as part of your anniversary celebration.

Who says you can't have a little fun with your party theme? How about a "girlie night" fete complete with lots of pink and tulle? Invite friends to dress up like their favourite old-time movie star and serve "diamonds and earrings" (fruit juice, of course) as refreshments. You can also execute some really fun ideas which are mentioned below:


-Decorate a large box for a centre-piece; line the bottom of the box with black felt and cover the inside walls with pink paper. Suspend candles from your ceiling to light from within each box; use clear fishing line to hang them. Use tissue paper to cover the outside of the box and add a sign that says, "Glamour Girls" or "Relax, Girls—no boys allowed." Put out some bubble bath for guests who want to re-create their own scene from movies.

-Turn your room into a posh hotel lobby by adding red carpeting on the floor. Create registration desks and chairs at one end of your room. Turn your chairs into new ones that are just a little different and then spray-paint them in satin silver hue. Put out a welcome sign on the wall, complete with a bell on it and a room number.

-A "High Heels Only" sign can be quite humorous and prevent someone from showing up in boots or sneakers. Make lots of signs, including "We have a fresh pair of heels for you," "Warning: High heels ahead," and "Thank you, ma'am; may I take your coat?" Wear shoes that are always two inches and not too high for the party. (Wear flats when serving guests)

These are some incredible ideas which you can use for a girl's birthday party.

Always take the time to organise before everyone arrives. The best way to ensure everyone has enough room in the house is to plan ahead and make sure the space is organised beforehand.

If you're hosting a large party, or just want to keep yourself organised during the party, there are some things you can do in order to make everything run smoothly. The biggest thing is that before the party starts setup your food and drinks on one of the sides. This will make it easy for guests to help themselves without having to go searching for their favourite beverages and snacks. Similarly, set up a table with your paper goods and other small essentials near the entrance so people don't have too much of a trip back and forth when they first arrive at your home. Lastly, an open bar makes for an efficient night with less work! Guests can help themselves without having to ask where everything is located.

If you're planning an outdoor barbecue event, there are a few things that you can do to make the party atmosphere even better. One of these is finding the perfect playlist with upbeat music that will totally set the mood. Another idea is having some festive décor, like balloons and tablecloths. Lastly, if you want some extra flavour to your party food, consider adding barbecue sauce or hot dogs to them! Sure it might seem like a lot of work for what ultimately boils down just to food on a grill and people chatting around a picnic blanket, but it will give your party that special edge that everyone has been looking for. A lot of people might think that planning a barbecue party is really easy, but really it's not. It takes a lot of hard work and thought to make the event perfect. For example, creating the perfect playlist is not just about putting on some random album with a few songs that fit the mood. It's about finding music that will totally set the tone for your party. Some possible genres include classic rock and roll, pop, rap, or even blues if you want to keep it low-key. If you have all of the music ready to go, you can then get started with planning. If you're going to decorate your party, try to do so in a manner that celebrates the season, like using Spring colours or Halloween décor. Of course, if you're having it at night and sending everyone home as the sun rises, then it doesn't really matter what colours you use for your decorations.

If there's one thing that should be included in your outdoor barbecue event, it's food. It's not a party without food, after all. But you don't want to just stick to the old hot dog and hamburgers.

Try adding some hot dogs to your menu, or even barbecue sauce if you want a special kick. It's all up to you!

A cocktail or dinner party is bound to be a more engaging affair when the guests are enjoying each other’s company. But what if you don’t know any of the party-goers? It can be difficult to create conversation on your own, especially if there are only one or two people who want to talk. And then you end up with that insufferable stand-off where two people are jabbering away but never include anyone else in the discussion.

Icebreakers are, for lack of a better word, intended to get things moving at parties. They can turn an awkward situation into an enjoyable one with the simple pleasure of getting someone else talking about themselves or their life right off the bat.

An icebreaker gives the focus of the discussion a change, rather than always being on you. I’m not sure if that makes sense, but for example: at a party, if you are the only one speaking to your host or hostess, it can be considerate of you to eventually include another person in the conversation. That way, your interaction doesn’t give off the impression that your entire party life consists of just chit-chatting with one person.

It’s just good manners.

Some people may find it easy to walk up to someone and strike up a conversation (some people are naturally more social). But, if you’re someone who doesn’t feel comfortable with that, there are some icebreakers that are easy to use and a lot of fun.

Here are a few:

1. The Most Interesting Game in the World – Everyone gets a turn to be the leader and thinks of something interesting about themselves. It can be anything: your favourite place you’ve travelled to, what you did for a living before you retired, etc. And then each person has to guess who it is that’s being described. Sounds simple enough and it gets people involved pretty quickly because they have a chance to find out who their friends are by guessing correctly. This game works when there’s only one person who goes first (the leader) but you can have more than one person go at once if that’s too easy for everyone else to guess correctly.

2. Name that Tune – You know how you can play a song on iTunes, and then everyone has to guess the song? Well, this is a variation of that game. Just give everyone a few seconds to think of something that is random or strange that they have done in their lifetime (the more bizarre, the better). Then make everyone guess what the song is! People get really into it because they try to manipulate the pitch and tempo of their guesses so as not to appear too obvious. It’s even funnier if you play an obscure tune as someone is guessing for other players.

3. Telephone Game – This is another good one for a small group of people. It’s kind of like a scavenger hunt, but you don’t have to do anything other than sitting around and talking. Someone will begin by saying something interesting about themselves. For example, “I have a tattoo on my shoulder of an eagle with a knife in its mouth.” The next person then says something that they heard the person before they say (not what they just said), and adds something to it. So for example: “I once rode a bicycle across Canada in the summer by myself. It led me to meet my ex-wife, who lived in Vancouver …”

And so on.

The process of planning and hosting a summer party can be daunting. Here are some strategies for throwing a successful party with your family that everyone will want to come back to next year.

Families love summer parties because they allow kids and adults alike to spend time together, have fun, and eat ice cream. But the process of planning and hosting one can be daunting! If you’re feeling overwhelmed or need some help, here are some tips from my personal experience when planning our annual outside fire party:

1) Plan the decorations ahead of time! Most people think about this part last minute but it should go into your plans from day one. What colour theme are you going for? What do you want your home to look like when people walk in? Create a Pinterest board of your favourite ideas and share it with everyone who will be helping decorate the party.

2) Pick your food carefully. Certain foods go better with certain summer activities. Try finger foods like hot dogs, chicken on a stick, cheese cubes and veggies, or even fruit! Don’t forget the ice cream! Sandwich platters are also delicious because they can be eaten on the go while chasing little ones around the backyard. In the winter, a picnic basket is always a great idea.

3) Pick your entertainment. Music and games are great entertainment for kids and adults alike, but what if you’re not sure how old everyone is? Have plenty of age-appropriate games and prizes like table tennis or bubble gum bubbles. I started a bubble gum bubble war for the kids before the party started to get them excited about it. Another option is to have an early morning breakfast with everyone and then play games over breakfast followed by an afternoon game of Pictionary or Buffalo, We Have..!

4) Plan your menu. There are hundreds of great recipes for summer parties on Pinterest, but I love the one from Averie Cooks called “20 Layer Dip that’s perfect for summer parties!”.

5) Decorate. Now that you have the food and entertainment laid out, it’s time to decorate! If your kids have helped pick some decorations ahead of time, they will love helping you decorate. Otherwise, make your own decorations. I like to go big or go home and use 4’x8′ sheets of foam core board and spray paint them with glitter and gold stars. Have fun creating different games with your family- the smaller the better!

6) Don’t forget about the adults! They always have a great time at the fire party and welcome people to join. But they always keep a stash of Corona, Johnny Walker Black, and an assortment of different types of beer laying around.

7) Invite everyone! It’s always important to know who is invited to your party before sending out any invitations. If you’re working on a budget, it’s also good planning on your end.

Enjoy your party. Good luck

If you're planning a wedding of your own, it's time to focus on the many details that will make your day special. A little advice can go a long way, and below are some helpful tips to help you plan your big event of days.

1. Don't wait until the last minute — cut down on stress by putting the bulk of the planning months before your wedding date. In fact, your professional planner should begin to work on the details at least three months before your day, so that you have time to gather all of your guest's information and receive a copy of the final contract before the big day.

2. Assess your priorities in each area. The wedding itself is only one part of a big event; how you create your wedding will impact its success in other ways. You need to be aware that this is a "job" and not a "happening," so consider carefully where the real stress will fall:

a. If you're having a planner and a caterer, do you need to be involved in the details?

b. If it's your home, is there enough room for all of your things as well as enough space for family and friends to relax?

c. Will you have enough help from your family to ensure that things happen when and where they should?

d. Is there a way for everybody to get together at one time — cocktail party, dinner, or dancing—or will you be constantly moving guests around?

e. Will there be opportunities for people to leave without feeling they have missed "the good times"?

3. Consider your attire and what it says about you during your wedding. For example, it is important to plan on something other than white or black. If you're going to wear a strapless dress, consider one with a little more flair. For a formal event such as a wedding, those in black are still appropriate but those wearing white are seen as being "nicer" and showing more class.

4. If you will be giving your guests little gifts at the reception, be sure they are included in the guest list and not just left at the door.

5. When you invite people to your wedding, it's important that you get the names of all of their children since many will not be celebrating the occasion with them in person. You will want to record any new names and dates of birth for any infants or young children that may be present, so your guests know who they are.

6. Tell your parents about the details at least one month before the big day; this gives them time to plan and helps prevent any last-minute changes that might cause more stress than they are worth.

7. Be sure to check with your florist in advance to ensure they have all necessary information and know exactly how you would like the flowers displayed.

8. When you set up your guest list, it is important that you include expectations for all of the guests, whether they are bringing dates or not. If this is an issue, consider making certain accommodations, such as offering a corsage if a woman is dressing up to attend your reception and providing directions for those who may otherwise get lost on the way.

9. If you're having a wedding at home, consider creating a separate room set aside for the pre-wedding party. (This way, guests can get together in their own space with something to do before they head upstairs to the main event.)

10. Consider creating a program book or invitation cards that are all different colours and that include some type of special design. You can find sample templates on the internet or print off your own; it's also okay to do things your own way.

11. Include all of the important information on your invitation cards — what time they should arrive at the church or reception venue and other pertinent hints like those involving childcare providers.

Anyways, to conclude, wedding planning is a huge task, so get started today and good luck with your big day!

What if you want to throw an outdoor pool party but you do not have the money to offer a large room or small house with a private pool? You can make your own backyard into one by constructing a simple pool. With careful planning, it will not cost much money and be completed on the same day. By following these steps, your backyard party will be the best poolside event of all time.

To start, you need to consider the size of your backyard and the pool. If it is large enough for a few neighbours to come, then you can plan on inviting 10 to 20 guests. Also, you have to determine how much space would be available. This will be important once you have decided on the decorations, food and drinks.

There are some steps based on the number of guests who will attend. If there are only ten invited guests, the following things can be determined:

1. Have an area for everyone to sit if there is furniture, or provide extra chairs for those who need them.

2. It is a good idea to have a small table with some drinks options, such as soft drinks and lemonade.

3. It will not be difficult to find out what type of food that your guests want. You can choose from grilled meats and hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and sandwiches.

4. Decorate the area with colourful balloons scattered around the backyard poolside area. It is also good to hang up some tropical printed material on the fence or trees near the location at which you are partying. Overall, keep it simple with just one colour scheme in mind; this will make the party easy to plan and create simultaneously.

5. Last, but not least, have it in the afternoon if you can. This is better for most people as it is easier for them to get time off work and have time with family and friends by their poolside backyard afternoon party.

6. If you are planning on inviting a larger number of guests, then you can leave out the hot dogs and hamburgers, but still keep the sandwiches, chips and other drinks options available to your guests.

7. You may want to put up some simple decoration such as tropical printed material on the fence and trees near your backyard poolside area so that it will be more interesting throughout the event.

8. You can use a table cloth to cover the furniture in your backyard poolside area.

Gather together some friends who like to have fun together, and then start planning your backyard poolside party.

To conclude, the easiest way to throw an outdoor pool party is to have it here in your own backyard and that way you don't have all of the expenses that come along with having a professional photographer and all of the other expenses associated with hosting a large backyard pool party.

It's time to plan your party! But what if you live in a condo with no trees or bushes right outside of your window? What does this mean for hanging decorations and lights outside and around the windows?

Luckily for you, we've compiled a list of ways to hang items from the ceiling and windows inside your home. The first thing we'll do is show you how to use S-hooks to hang things. Here we go:

1. Take an S-hook (this is the type you'll find fixed to a door frame)

2. Grab a 2' piece of rope

3. Tie a knot in the rope's end and make sure it sits in the hook-hole

4. Now take some string or yarn and tie it to the end of your rope if you want a fuller appearance. Your strings don't have to be tied in knots, but the firmer they are, the more secure they will be.

5. Slide the rope through the metal bar that is fixed to your door frame.

6. You now have a way to hang things from the ceiling and windows in your home!

How about hanging lights from above? There are lots of options. Here are some:

Duct tape:  Use duct tape (or duck tape if you have it) to hang things from above

Cotton balls: Cotton balls are not just for cleaning windows anymore! They can be used as a great way of hanging lights from above. Use cotton balls, twine or string, yarn or yarn wraps, dressmaker's needles and plastic hangers; then string these items on a sewing machine needle.

Sugar dough: You can also use sugar dough to make hard plastic decorations with all sorts of lights and angels. Hold the sides of the decoration together with a simple strip of duct tape until you can turn the shafts of your rope or wires inside out; this will keep the sugar dough from spilling out.

Plastic hangers: Sadly, there are not many options for hanging things from above, but you can use one by using a hanger and some spare wire or string. To do this, wrap some wire around the hanger and then wrap that wire around a piece of string or yarn. Use a needle and thread to sew that string or yarn around the hanger.

Tips:  

1. When glueing your lights and decorations on, use only a few small pieces of paper towel or tissue so as not to dent your work. When you are finished with the glue, gently wipe off the excess glue with a soft cloth (like a paper towel or tissue).

2. You can cut out shapes from cardboard or foam for other types of decorations/decorations then glue them on as shown in the above photo.

3. If your party is on a hot day, you can put your lights in a bowl or bucket of water for about 30 minutes to keep them cool.  

4. You can mix coloured lights together for a rainbow effect.

5. Make sure to secure your strands of light using hooks and nails, or clips and glue them onto the wall/ceiling or windows close to each other so they can be easily seen.

6. If you want to hang strings from the ceiling, hang them from the ceiling fan blades while they are not turned on, then turn on the fan so that it holds up your strands of lights and decorations!  

7. If you want to hang decorations from the cool of your home's back porch or covered patio, use a bowl or bucket to put water in and then place your decorations in it. Wait for them to get close to room temperature, then hang them up!

8. If you are planning a party at night, string some small Christmas lights along the sides of the ceiling and windows so that they light up your festivities.

Yes. All our chemical glow light sticks and products come in a sealed plastic case. Even if the outer casing of the glow light sticks or glow light product is somehow punctured or broken open, the chemical contents are non-toxic and non-flammable. Contact with eyes or ingesting of the fluid should be avoided because irritation will result. There is also the possibility of an allergic reaction. Please keep in mind however that under normal use you will never come into contact with the fluid inside the glow light stick. Glow light products are not recommended for children under the age of 5 without adult supervision.
There are four components to most glow sticks & glow products. The first is the plastic outer casing which holds everything together. The second is the fluid that you can see moving around in the glow stick or glow product. The third is the glass ampoule which floats freely in the fluid and the fourth component is the fluid contained inside the glass ampoule. Now that your aware of the components that make up a glow product you will learn how to activate one. To make a glow light product or glow light stick 'glow' you must bend the outer plastic casing enough so that the inner glass ampoule breaks. The two chemicals can then mix together creating the chemical reaction and the glow effect.
Glow Sticks glow from 4 to 24 hours depending on the product type, brand, color and temperature of the environment they are being used in. Typically, the smaller the glow stick, the shorter the glow duration due to the amount of chemical glow used inside the glow stick. Industrial Quality 6 Inch Glow Sticks can last up to 12 hours and Long Lasting Glow Sticks that use a special powder based formula can glow for over 24 hours.
Yes, the warmer the temperature, the brighter the glow stick will glow. The heat will also shorten the chemical reaction time, which is of course the length of time that the light stick glows for. So, for example if you have the glow stick with you in a hot tub, or if you are dancing and you are in a hot room, the glow stick will glow very brightly, but the duration will not be as long as it normally is.


If it is colder, the glow stick will be dimmer and the reaction time will be longer, meaning that it will glow longer. So if you are a scuba diver or hiker using a glow stick to mark something in cold water or cooler temperatures, the glow will not be very bright, but the duration will be longer. However, please note that if the temperatures are very cold, below freezing temperatures, the glow stick may freeze and the glow effect will be limited.
No, once you have activated a glow light product it will glow until the chemical reaction is finished. You can however prolong the life of your glow light stick or glow light product after it has been activated. Stick it into the freezer. Freezing an activated glow light product will slow the chemical reaction. Once you take it back out of the freezer, the glow light stick or glow light product will start to glow again once it reaches room temperature. This technique does not stop the chemical reaction, but it slows the reaction enough that if you put it into the freezer one night and take it back out the next night, it should work fine.
Yes. Chemical based glow sticks are sealed in a plastic tube and are waterproof. Glow Sticks were originally developed by the US Navy as a non-heated, non-sparking light source for illumination. Scuba Divers and the Coast Guard use them in water to make themselves more visible and as a safe dependable light source.


Glow sticks are waterproof, do not use any batteries, do not generate any heat, and can tolerate high pressures, such as those found under water.
With normal use of glow light product this is not a issue, but if you happen to puncture a glow light product and get it on your clothing, simply rinse the area with warm soapy water. If the chemical dries on the clothing it may cause a stain.
Glow light products should be stored in a cool dry place in their original container or package. Heat and humidity will shorten the shelf life of glow light products.
Depending on how they are packaged the shelf life is 1 to 4 years. Glow products kept in foil packaging will last for up to 4 years and items with no foil packaging have usually just over a 1-year shelf life.
The glow light is made of two parts which when mixed together create the chemical reaction which makes them glow.


- 4 g sodium carbonate
- 0.2 g luminol
- 0.5 g ammonium carbonate
- 0.4 g copper sulphate pentahydrate
- approx. 1 litre of distilled water.
- 50 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide.

Yes. Heat actually increases the light radiating response causing a glowstick to glow more fabulously but for a shorter time frame. As the temperature decline towards the freezing point, dimmer will be the glowing impact of glow stick. However, the time span will be longer.
Yes, absolutely right. You can use glow sticks for different purpose as per your requirement easily without any hassle. Partyglowz.com has quality glow sticks that can be used for different purpose at a particular time.

Glow light sticks are supposed to be kept in a cold dry place as chemical contained in the tube gets aggravated and start producing more heat which eventually start reducing its shelf value.
First, almost any glow in the dark paint you find in a craft store will be of the zinc sulphide variety which barely glows at all if we’re honest. All of our paints are made with our rare earth aluminate powders and are made specifically for use by artists. Whether you are painting a mural, canvas, model, or anything else, our paints go on smooth and dry completely clear when used as directed.
As all of our phosphorescent powders have a waterproof coating, they can be used for any application that you can think of. Our powders can be used in resin, wax, blown glass, plastic, solvent and water based paints, plastidip, rubber and many more applications.

The most amazing thing about these glow in the dark powders is that they are derived from naturally occurring elements that are completely nontoxic and definitely not radioactive. The inspiration for our store came from nature and science and we find it amazing what these naturally derived materials can do while being completely safe. Please keep in mind though that just like any other fine powder, you’ll want to avoid inhaling or getting the pigment in your eyes as it may cause irritation.
Our powders are packaged in various sizes of zip lock bags which you’ll definitely thank us for if you don’t use all of your powder in one sitting.M
Our paints are packaged in 1 oz. containers for quantities of 1 to 3 ounces. Any multiple of 4 ounces will be packaged in 4 oz. jars.
We also offer variety packs that are a great way to get a large number of glow colors for not a lot of money. These are offered in sets of 4, 1/6-ounce paint pots.
Due to their unique crystalline structures, each glow in the dark color has a different maximum brightness and glow time. The neutral colors that glow Yellow-Green and Aqua are the two brightest, longest lasting colors available anywhere. You can see more specifics on all of the colors on their individual product pages.
All of our paints are water based acrylics and are easily cleaned up with soap and water when still wet. Once dry, they are difficult to get out of fabric but usually pretty easy to remove from non-porous surfaces such as wood, tile, glass, and even leather and vinyl. Little drops can usually be “picked” off of these surfaces with a finger nail and the remaining residue cleaned up with rubbing alcohol.
Our paints don't have much of an odor and smell just like any other acrylic paint does. Our neutral powders don’t have any smell at all but the colorful pigment in the fluorescent powders does have a bit of an odor to it. Once mixed with a medium like paint, resin, plastic, etc. the smell goes away.
This one is really up to you and we’d love to hear what method works best for you. There are several different ways to paint with glow paint and which one is best will vary from project to project.
The easiest method is to paint over a surface in normal light. With this method, you won’t see the final result until you charge the paint and turn the lights out (a fun surprise in itself) but you can easily embellish existing paintings or images and paint outdoors using this method.
if you want to see exactly what your work is going to look like when it’s done, you’re going to want to be able to see the glow effect in real time as it is being applied. These paints glow for so long that you can sit in a dim room (a small amount of light is ideal so that you can easily see the underlying image), charge the paints with a UV light for a few seconds, and then apply them while they are still glowing. This is probably the ideal middle ground and the method that most people will use.
If you plan to create a lot of glow in the dark art, you may want to invest in a fluorescent black light fixture. You can get a 24” black light for less than $20 which you can position right above your painting. This will keep the paint charged for the entire session and give you a little light to see the underlying image as well even in an otherwise completely dark room. Yet another option that is even cheaper, you can purchase a compact fluorescent black light bulb and screw it into a standard table lamp for a similar effect.
For the best performance, we recommend using either our UV flashlights or sunlight for the fastest, brightest charge. Black light tubes are also great for charging but are less focused than LEDs so may take a little longer (they’re also a lot less convenient).
If none of the above options are available, then holding your item close to a household fluorescent light (tube or spiral) will charge it too.
Most regular LEDs and typical tungsten light bulbs (hot white wire in the middle) do not give off the wavelength of light needed to charge glow in the dark items.
