Does your child want a new bedroom but you do not want to spend a lot of money on it? Then instead of going to the furniture store, you could also buy a bottle of glow in the dark paint. That way you save yourself a lot of money and you can still turn the room into something cool by applying it in different shapes. After sundown it will look like you enter a magical world. Your kids will love it for sure!
The paint is available in a lot of different colors and if you buy some of them you can create the most beautiful pieces of art. If you want to keep it simple, it could be wise to use a template with the shapes already cut out.
Every time the paint has been exposed to a light source for long enough, the paint can glow up to twelve hours. The best way to achieve this, is to let sunshine into the bedroom during daytime but it should also suffice to leave the light on for a couple of minutes.
Apart from decorating rooms, there are also plenty of other applications thinkable of what you can do with this paint. For example, you could paint a skeleton on black clothing for Halloween to create a wonderful costume. Also for safety purposes the paint is very useful. If you apply it on the vertical parts of a stairway, you can also use the stairs safely in the dark.
