Glow in the Dark Paint

E-mail to a Friend Add to Favorites Print
Luminescent stars painted with Benjamin Moore's Studio Finishes Glow In The Dark (312) Effect onto a black background create the appearance of a night sky with stars.

Imagine twinkling stars on a ceiling or a border of luminous starfish in a dark bath. Our glow-in-the-dark paint is ideal for creating designs just like these, which can be stamped and stenciled on a painted basecoat.

Because this effect comes alive most effectively at night, try using glow-in-the-dark wall paint in your bedroom, bath, or anywhere you spend time in the evening.

How to Use Glow-in-the-Dark Room Paint

Step 1 - Prepare Surfaces
Be sure your surface is properly prepared before you begin your project. Clean your walls thoroughly and repair any protruding nails or other imperfections.

Step 2 - Apply the Base Color
Apply your selected base color onto properly prepared walls.

Step 3 - Apply the Finish
Using specialty techniques such as stamping or sponging, apply a glow-in-the-dark paint, such as Studio Finishes® Glow In The Dark (312) Effect, which delivers a subtle luminescence.

Helpful Hints for Glow-in-the-Dark Painting
 
Try painting a small luminous border around light switches in baths and bedrooms, as a clear guide for fumbling fingers. The effect is brightest when used over light colors, which reflect rather than absorb light. The glow-in-the-dark effect is less noticeable over light-colored base areas by day, when it takes on a milky appearance.
