1. Luminous materials such as our glow paint or glow powder. Solvent Based Long After Glow Paints (all colors except for red and orange) This paint will glow for up to 12 hours. It is a solvent based medium. If you want to create your own solvent based paint, use our Green Glow Powder pigment for best results. You can get this paint in other colors but they will not glow as long.
2. Applicator such as a brush, roller, or spray gun. If using a spray gun you will need to use a stencil for best results. Rollers and brushes are easier but leave brush marks, while the spray gun will not.
Plan where you will paint before painting. The location of your luminous paint will be very important in times of emergency. Paint areas where you will need to see such as stair cases, exits, fire extinguishers etc. Paint areas low to the ground because in situations where smoke is present you will need to have the lighting close to the floor. For non-emergency lighting such as bathrooms, hall ways, closets, etc. use the luminous materials to outline potential problem items. Example, outline toilets, sinks, and tubs so that you do not have to turn the light on during the night. Tape off area to be painted. If you are using solvent based paints keep area well ventilated and/or wear breathing protection. In areas where there will be a lot of friction apply a clear over coat to protect it.
