Glow in the dark paint?

Hi guys!

I wanted to buy the new Pirate of Carabean ship by Revell. On the box, you can see the boat is glowing. It needs some paint that glow in the dark. Someone can tell me which kind of paint should I buy? I have an airbrush.

I would love to get a green/yellow/white glow in the dark paint.

Thanks

Re: Glow in the dark paint?

Hi,
Alsa Corp. sells some wicked effect paints, including the glow-in-dark.
It´s actually a pearl that you mix into the clear for a glowing effect, they´re expensive though...

Re: Glow in the dark paint?

I bought glow in the dark paint at a craft store for my kids' projects. They even come in different colors. I don't know about airbrushing them though as they are pretty thick, more like glue.

Re: Glow in the dark paint?

Yeah, I wanted to try this too, do a black car, with glow in the dark rims or stripes. That would be cool ;-)

I think Duplicolor makes some glow-in-the-dark paint.

Re: Glow in the dark paint?

Yeah, the craft store sells some. I think it's sold by Plaid. I wouldn't airbrush it tho. But if I was making that pirate ship, I'd paint it all up like normal. And add on the glow in the dark paint, as if you were drybrushing on weathering. Because, I think that type of paint isn't visible in the light maybe? But good luck and I hope you get something that works out.
