My hubby is wondering if there is any acrylic glow in the dark paint for artists. He has fluorescent paint but it is only very bright and does not glow.I searched it here but didnt seem to find a name of the kind of paint they used in their work.:) :)
Thanks for any help offered here.

I only know of the fabric paints that come in a glow in the dark, one of the things I did for years was alot of fabric painting! Comes in tubes at the craft stores or walmart.

there is glow in the dark acrylic craft paint that I have used. Check the craft paint section of your local crafting store. I believe the brand was apple barrel but I am not completely sure. it came in a small jar. It worked well though. Hope that helps

Golden has a green phosphorescent acrylic medium. It can be mixed with other acrylic colours and is supposed to glow green(regardless of colour mixed with) in the dark. Here's the link to the Golden site:


Liquitex also has a 'flourescent' range that emits colour when in the dark. It should be mentioned though that since the chemical combination in this paint is unstable, the 'glow' property and the colour of the paint are not permanent. Here's the link to their site where they talk about this:


AV Vallejo also has a flourescent range(in a range of different colours), though they don't talk about it in much detail. They do mention this:

'Our testing has so far not produced fading, and the colors can be further protected by layers of varnish, but this may also reduce the fluorescent effect. We cannot recommend the use of these colors for exterior murals, and recommend protecting the finished work from direct sunlight.'

Link to their site:


Hope this helps!

Pebeo do a range of phosphorescent gels, however I couldn't find the info on their site. I know it's available in NZ and UK.
