What is Fluorescent paint? 

Fluorescent acrylic paints are a type of paint that contains pigments that emit light when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation. They are often used in art and craft projects, as well as for industrial and safety marking applications. They can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including paper, canvas, wood, and metal. Fluorescent acrylic paints are available in a wide range of colors, including bright and vibrant shades that are not found in traditional paints.

The green stuff world fluor acrylic paints are some of the most highly pigmented and vibrant paints on the market. They have a smooth texture and go on evenly, resulting in beautiful and consistent color coverage. When applied over white paint, they really pop and glow brightly under ultraviolet or black light. This makes them perfect for creating eye-catching miniatures and dioramas. There are an infinite number of creative possibilities when you use these paints, so let your imagination run wild!

How to paint with fluorescent paints?

When painting with them, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Start with a white or light-colored surface: They are most vibrant when applied to a white or light-colored surface, as they will appear brighter and more intense.
  • Use a UV light source: To fully activate the fluorescent pigments in the paint, it's best to use a UV light source, such as a blacklight, when working with these paints. Get your UV torch here.
  • Apply thin layers: These paints can be somewhat transparent, so it may be necessary to apply several thin layers to achieve the desired level of brightness.
  • Use a sealant: To protect your paint job and to make it more durable, especially if the final miniature will be frequently touched.
  • Experiment with mixing colors: Fluor paints can be mixed to create new, custom colors, so feel free to experiment with different combinations to find the perfect shade for your project.

Remember that fluorescent paint will not glow in natural light, they need UV light to be activated.

Where to buy Fluor paint?

Acrylic fluor paints are water-based paints that contain a small amount of fluorocarbon resin. You can buy fluor paints at the Green Stuff World official site. They can be found in a variety of formats, including dropper bottles that hold 17 ml of paint, and in a box of 8 colors. The box of 8 colors is a convenient option for artists, hobbyists, and those who need a variety of colors for a project.

The color intensity of fluor paints

Fluorescent paint pigments are known for their intense, bright colors. However, there can be variations in color intensity among different brands and types of this type of modelling paints. This can be due to factors such as the quality and purity of the pigments used, as well as the manufacturing process. The most intense colours by their nature would be fluorescent yellow paint, fluorescent green paint, and fluorescent orange paint.

One factor that can affect the intensity of these super-intense acrylic paints is the amount of pigment in the paint. Some manufacturers use more pigments than others, which can result in brighter, more intense colors. Additionally, the quality of the pigments used can also affect the intensity of the color. High-quality pigments will typically produce more vibrant, longer-lasting colors. Be sure to work with highly pigmented paints such as the green stuff world series of acrylic paints, metallic paints, fluor pigments, or even UV fluor and luminescent paints.

Another factor that can affect the intensity of this type of hobby paint is the amount of light exposure. The fluorescence of these pigments will appear brightest when exposed to UV light or black light. However, over time, the intensity of the color may fade if the paint is not protected from prolonged exposure to light.

Finally, the type of surface that the paint is applied to can also affect the intensity of the color. Fluorescent paint will appear brightest on a white or light-colored surface, while darker surfaces may absorb some of the light and make the color appear less intense.

It's important to keep in mind that Fluor acrylics will not look the same in natural light as it does under UV light.
