I've got some artwork I'm wanting to print for album covers for a client that's a very light pink (mostly white base mixture). I'm wondering if I can mix an 8oz. Glow-In-The-Dark Acrylic to it to give the pink some of that "glow" quality. Has anyone else experimented with this at all? All inks used are Acrylic WB...
Not sure if this has been asked yet, but couldn't find anything in the forums.
White will definitely kill the glow. Fluorescents are kind of transparent by nature. They do make different glow in the dark colors. Glow in the Dark Powder
Not sure why but they say they aren't compatible with WB mediums.
Thanks, we actually ran the color last night and experimented with it a slight bit. You were right it didn't work. We ended up just printing our first color and then left the registration up and cleaned out the locked in screen then printed the glow-in-the-dark ink over top. It printed pretty clear for the most part, added a slight yellowish tint to the first color but it was supposed to look a little sickly, so no worries there... the weird thing is that it does glow... but I not very brightly. I feel like it's probably illuminated at 20-30% what it should be.. we didn't add anything to it just printed it over our first color (very light pink). Anybody have any idea why it would be popping or very bright? I've been theorizing maybe our stencil needed to be thicker to lay a thicker layer? Does the glow-in-the-dark ink need to be stored out of light until it's printed (like a de-charging sort of thing)?
