paints so good?
Because we make 'em that way. We do not cut
corners on quality nor do we use cheap ingredients,
quite the opposite. When you compare STARGLOW paints
with those made by other companies. STARGLOW UV Paints fluoresce
brighter, last longer and look better, but yes, they
do cost more.
By only using the
very best of pigments available and by opting for
the maximum pigmentation possible do we get the
results we are happy with, and if we are not happy
why should you be?
We also make
STARGLOW paints waterproof, tough and flexible; able
to cope with most interior applications.
So yes, we could
produce cheap, poor quality paints, but why would we
put our name to that?

Guidelines for using
CLEAR UV Paint
As UV pigments will tend to settle after a while you should
stir / mix-up the paint well before each and every use.
Use a white background for the best results. Any colour other than white will
diminish the glow.
Try to build-up thin layers of
UV paint to
create one thick layer. Generally
speaking, The thicker the layer of UV paint the more uniform its
appearance and richer the glow.
Touch dry in 30 mins. Leave each layer at least 2 hours to dry
fully before a
Do not over-dilute or 'thin' the
too much as this will impair its performance. Use STARGLOW Reducer for use with an airbrush.
If you choose to use outdoors you should protect your coating as
it may be exposed
to harsh weather or hand or foot contact, you should apply
three coats of STARGLOW Protective Top-Coat. However, we do
not recommend using STARGLOW Paints outdoors.
For best UV performance apply UV paint over a white primed surface
and illuminated with a strong UV Black light in close proximity
(Avoid LED based UV lights if possible)
Do not apply UV paint where
it will be over-exposed to direct sunlight. This will reduce the
paints performance and effective lifetime.

Clear UV Paints perform best with Fluorescent tube, UV Bulb and UV Canon

frequencies required to fully activate these paints and they emit far
too much 'visible light' interference (spill), which can over-power
