Glow-in-the-dark Squid

In an earlier post, Jason created a glow-in-the-dark octopus. Well, he needed a friend obviously, so he’s back now with a glow-in-the-dark squid. His psychedelic coloring was achieved using all the different colors available in our Gluminous glow-in-the-dark sample pack. Jason has now used Gluminous powders in a few projects, and offered this review compared to other brands.

The glow powders I used to use where more distinctly colored in the light, but all of them glowed the same green-yellow color. The unique glow of each Gluminous powder is far more impressive, in my book.

Thanks Jason! We’re super happy that you’ve liked the results, and thanks as always for sharing your project with us and the Gluminous community. Want to share your project with us, and possibly win some free powders? Be sure to check out our contest page for more details.


Photochromic Flower

The petals of this plastic flower change color when placed in the sun. It uses Gluminous photochromic powder (orange) mixed into InstaMorph moldable plastic to achieve the effect. It starts out a light yellow in the shade and transitions to a deep orange/red in the sun.

“Although I never worked with photochromic powders before, the speed and boldness of the color shifts was really amazing!”

This is because Gluminous powders are almost 2x smaller in diameter than other brands, meaning more surface area by weight and quicker transitions when placed in the sun.

Glow-in-the-dark Action Figures

Gluminous glow-in-the-dark powder can be integrated into many different mediums. It works especially well in our moldable plastic, InstaMorph. Gluminous pigments can be kneaded into the plastic while it’s warm and pliable and then attached to other plastic parts.

In this project, Jason made his nephews a trio of glowing action figures, complete with removable glowing swords.
