I'm not sure if I'm even using the correct terms..sorry. basically this is what I want to do: I have a metal "welcome" sign. The letters are red. I would like to have the letters "glow" under uv light using uv led's. ANy thoughts?

I have some crappy photos (taken with my cell cam) that I will post shortly.

Thanks

Hollyberry would be the one to ask about this as she uses some kind of a UV reactive powder (or something like that) mixed in with her paints. I have a painting of my house she did that has UV reactive characters in it that aren't even visible under normal light.

wolfen manor,

You may want to try this.

Clearneon

I was going to buy some last year, but time just ran too short.

The cheapest solution would be to pick up some glow spraypaint from Home Depot. I bought a few cans last year to spray on a bunch of stuff. It went on clear! Fantastic.

You could just spray a bunch into a bown or can, then handpaint your letters. Should do the trick with a minimum of fuss.

ClearNeon is good

I used my first batch last weekend and am *very* pleased with the results.

THe upside is that it goes on clear, so it won't cover up other decorations. Also, if you cycle the UV on and off you get a great effect.

The only downside is that some of the colors aren't as brilliant as they could be, esp. the short wavelenngths like red and pink.

And yeah, it is a little more expensive than most of the other options.
