Can you mix two GloNation Super Phos glow in the dark powder colors and get a different glow color?

In the world of glow, yellow and green do not make blue. So you can not mix the powder and paints to achieve a true different color. You can make different hues of glowing colors by using layering techniques.

Can I add GloNations’ Super Phos glow in the dark powder to water to make it glow or make paint?.
No, the powder will simply sink to the bottom of container. It will glow there, but not be dispersed throughout the mixture. You need something that will suspend the powder and be clear so light can charge it.

Can I add GloNations’ Super Phos glow in the dark powder to regular paint and make glow paint?
GloNation uses special polymers and emulsions to make our paint. Our pigmented paints allow light to get through to charge the powder particles and still have a daytime color. Regular latex paints can not do this because they have heavy pigments added.

Do you ship internationally.

How do you make a bike glow in the dark.
To make a bike frame glow ideally you need to strip the bike to bare metal. Prime it then with a white or light color. Then mix 1 oz of our glow in the dark powder to 4 oz of a good automotive clear coat. Then spray paint the bike with a HVLP spray gun for a professional look. Several coat are required for best glow effect. You can also use GloNation's Glow in the Dark Tape cut into strips and placed on the bike frame if painting is too much of a project.
