Glow-In-the-Dark Mod Podge!!!

I CAN NOW MAKE STUFF GLOW IN THE DARK!!! It's so exciting -- I don't know which figure to use it on first. A Dalek? A Terminator? Dollar store rats and insects? I'll probably opt for one of the latter -- not as amazing, I know, but these things make good test subjects and it's not like I was using them for anything. But note well: THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!!

    I think you should paint a figure's eyes with your new paint. =) And maggots. Must. Paint. Maggots. You could create yourn own Eldrad, too! Yes, the possibilities are ENDLESS, absolutely endless!

    Sweet! If I can find that at the craft store here, it would make glow-in-the-dark lightswitch plates a lot easier to produce.

    I used some glow-in-the-dark gel that's actually meant to wash off, so it took extra time to dry. I coated the image with art store clearcoat and used Matte Mod Podge to glue it to the switchplate. Then it got a coat of Mod Podge on top to further seal it, and one or 2 more clearcoats.
    My materials and methods have improved over time!

      Wow -- that sounds very complicated, Jax! I very much appreciate all of your hard work. 🙂 I smiled when I read that you used Mod Podge, too! I wasn't all that keen on it at first, but I'm really starting to like using it for certain things. The Satin Mod Podge looks brilliant on the metal pieces of my Shredder custom.

    You'd pass up the chance to make a radioactive Terminator?!

    Truly, "THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS" for glueing, sealing, and the like. But Mod Podge has enough moisture to make inkjet colors run, especially on cheap paper, even through clearcoat. This is much less of a problem when I use light cardstock.
    Glad you like yours, Wes. Guaranteed one of a kind! 🙂

    I long for the day when I can say those words...I think it would work like Gambit's mutant-power, lol.
