Other reviews are correct, it does not glow brightly when painted in one layer. But then, neither do any other traditional glow paints. The newer technology paints are better - but MUCH more expensive. For projects where a little paint must glow a lot (e.g., gun sights), use the newer stuff (Amazon now carries it Ultra Green V10 Glow in the Dark Paint 2Oz) If you can 'layer' this basic paint and use it thickly it will glow very nicely.

It also has a nice latex property which makes it ideal for another creative possibility (which I discovered on my own). I use candy-mold letter shapes. I drip this paint into them to fill them up (completely). Then I let them dry for a week. If they are fully dry, you can peel them out and VIOLA you have thick, 3d, glow letters which can be attached to anything. They will have the consistency of a rubber inner tube. Plus, the thickness will allow them to glow a lot. If you think about this - there are very many different candy (chocolate) molds available, but you have to use the cheap plastic kind. Amazon sells lots, but not all. They have all the letters and numbers you may want and they have a good price. Bigger letters are better, but they use more paint and you also need to buy more molds. I picked up a set of small letters on one sheet to practice.

Here is an example of the bigger letters: CK Products 4-Inch Letters (A,B,C) Chocolate Mold

I also used this to paint the (translucent) shade on my battery operated camp lamp. I did use about 5-6 coats via brush.

My son needed this for a school project. It worked out, but we had to figure out a few things not to do first. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is they really should have made some of this clear in the instructions.

This paint is very water and absorbs into paper easily. You will want to put down a backing paint (match it to the color of whatever you are painting on. We put down white paint on a white poster board) and then apply the glow-in-the-dark paint on top of that.

If you do it that way, it will do a pretty good job of glowing in the dark. If you don't do the backing paint it will seem really faint because so much of it gets absorbed. The paint holds the light pretty well and continues to be visible in the dark a couple of hours after exposure to light.

Its pretty good if used right, but you have to do trial and error (or read some reviews) to know that.

I used this to paint skeletons for Halloween costumes on black fabric. It was easy to use, and produced a fun faint glow with very little added color (that is, it didn't make my white skeletons look green or anything). We could see the glow clearly under a blacklight, but it worked well after charging in regular indoor light too.

This paint sort of, kind of, I guess glows a *little* bit. Maybe you have to put it on specific surfaces, but I have some of it on my white walls and it doesn't really glow.

It glows bright, even in low light; however, it only lasts a very short time before it needs to "recharge".

I purchased this paint from Michaels and was really disappointed at how little it glows. It doesn't glow long either.

The paint that I use is very expensive, but it can glow all night long. I use a non-radioactive paint, which is important because I paint in Ronald McDonald House guest rooms and children's hospital rooms. My paint is $40-50 for two ounces. If I bought it by the gallon it would cost $750-$1200 per gallon depending on intensity, but once exposed to the air will dry out in six weeks. That's why I buy by the ounce. You get what you pay for and like someone else said, you need to know what you're doing to get the results you want.

This paint definitely Glows in the dark. I have purchased other paints that claimed to glow in the dark, only to have wasted my money. I have used this paint on several projects, with wonderful results. I did a small constellation project on my bedroom ceiling using DecoArt paint last October. Here we are in March 2015 and every night when I turn out my lights, I still have twinkling replicas of stars on my ceiling. A small amount of paint goes a long way. I highly recommend this product.

The paint glows nicely both in the dark and under black light however I tried to apply it to wood (I was painting lines on a ping pong table) both before and after priming and sanding and the paint did not coat evenly in the least. Very streaky application. I think it would be okay for spot applications but that's about it.
