What is a Fluorescent Paint? 

A fluorescent paint is a type of color 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. They are available in a wide range of colors, including bright and vibrant shades that are not found in traditional colors.

They get their intense color from a property called fluorescence. When exposed to ultraviolet light, such as blacklight, their pigments absorb the UV radiation and then re-emit it as visible light. This process makes the colors appear exceptionally vibrant and bright under UV light.

The green stuff world fluorescent paints are some of the most highly pigmented and vibrant colors on the market. They have a smooth texture and go on evenly, resulting in beautiful and consistent color coverage. When applied over white, 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 them, so let your imagination run wild!

How to use Fluor paint?

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, it's best to use a black light source, such as a blacklight when working with them. Get your UV torch here.
  • Apply thin layers: They 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 work 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 these types will not glow in natural light, they need UV light to be activated.

Where to buy Fluor paint?

An acrylic fluorescent paint is water-based and it contains a small amount of fluorocarbon resin. You can buy them at the Green Stuff World official site. They can be found in a variety of formats, including dropper bottles that hold 17 ml of product, 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

Their pigments are known for their intense, bright colors. However, there can be variations in color intensity among different brands. 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, fluorescent green, and fluorescent orange.

One factor that can affect the intensity of these super-intense fluor paints is the amount of pigments. 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 colors such as the Green Stuff World series of acrylic paint, metallic paint, fluor pigments, or even luminescent paint.

Another factor that can affect the intensity 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 surface is not protected from prolonged exposure to light.

Finally, the type of surface that it is applied to can also affect the intensity of the color. These types of fluor Paints 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 these type of acrylics will not look the same in natural light as it does under blacklight.
