    Default speedball night glo

    so, they make 4 colors: white, yellow, blue & green.

    do they glow the same color or in different hues?

    the white is great. Haven't used the other colors yet.
    Does anyone know if it ever looses it's glowability?

    I used the yellow once. It didn't look yellow enough when printed so I mixed a SMALL amount of regular yellow acrylic into it. Now it looks good in the light but doesn't do shit in the dark. Guess you need to keep it pure. I have some of the white...waiting for the right project to use it on.

    yeah, i'm planning on printing 2 different GID inks on black paper, so i guess i'll have to drop some swatches of it before i print it to make sure that i'm getting what i want.

    i'd love to know if the blue glows blue, that would be awesome. i've only used the yellow, and it's a yellow glow.

    dave44, is the white nice and bright? seems like it could be a real sneaky touch since maybe you wouldn't see the white easily on paper in the light.

    well, I printed it on white paper. It dries to almost invisible, or did for me, which is the effect we were going for.
    The glow is nice on it too. I was happy with it, but I've heard talk of a GID powder. Is this true? And if so, how feasible vs. Speedball's ready mix?

    neat, good to know about the white glo. i would imagine that the powders can be nice cause you can intensify the glow, but i'm not sure what the base is that you'd mix them into.

    i've seen one poster with the white used and in daylight it had a bit of a green tinge to it - very much how i've seen it on shirts.
    i'm trying it on black paper as well soon and plan on trying it with a base white etc which can't hurt.

    wonder how mixing some extender in with it would affect it??

    it cuts the glowy down fairly fast, not quite as bad as if you add opaque inks, but definitely it shows without too much extender added.
