Where my ideas meet reality.

Body Paint by Neon Glow

Neon Glow invited me to review their UV Blacklight Reactive Body Paint. Neon Glow’s Body Paint is ASTMD-4236 certified, which means that you don’t have to worry about your safety or the long-term health when using this product. Also, Neon Glow doesn’t contain formaldehyde or other toxic ingredients that produce a foul odor. This neon paint can even be applied to other surfaces, such as clothing, paper and wood. It’s water soluble and doesn’t stain, so you can get super creative with these UV glow paints. Simply wash off with soap and water when you’re done!

To test this paint I decided to get a little creative! I used a canvas from US Art Supply to paint a  UV Blacklight Reactive Painting. This paint was very easy to use. You can mix the colors to create custom colors (purple). I decided to use zentangles for this particular UV Blacklight Reactive Painting.

I really like how well that the zentangles turned out. The black light makes the white of the painting turn blue. My fiance said this effect would look cool with sea life. For this 2nd painting I made a sea life UV Blacklight Reactive Painting.

My camera really doesn’t do this paint justice. It looks so much better in person. The GIF maker also compresses some of the quality. Here you can see each one in standard format.

I’ve decided to host a giveaway! I will paint a UV Blacklight Reactive Painting and ship to one of my US followers. Unfortunately I’m unable to ship internationally. I will let the Giveaway winner select their subject matter. It needs to me a family friendly subject matter and I reserve the right to decline anything inappropriate. The winner will need to supply their shipping information to receive their prize. You can enter my giveaway here: {CLOSED}. The winner’s name and shipping information will also be shared with Neon Glow who is hosting their own Giveaway of their Premium Set (6 pack of 2 oz. bottles) of UV Blacklight Reactive Body Paint.

Quick Tip: The blue paint doesn’t react well to blacklight. This is pretty standard for blue UV Blacklight Reactive products. If you are mixing pink and blue expect the purple to also not be as reactive. You can use this to your advantage if you are anticipating this. If you’re not the blue in your design will likely disappear under a blacklight.

If you’re wondering if this works on skin as well as it does canvas, yes it does! I know I’ve highlighted canvases in this review but its primary use is on skin. I used a rose stencil out of US Art Supply’s Custom Body Art Kit.
