The PixieCrafting glow pigment is the magical fairy dust which bestows your jewelry pieces with a strong, long-lasting glow in the dark. The Green Pigment is light yellow in daylight, and in the dark it glows green after being charged with light. It can be mixed with our UV resin or epoxy resin. To achieve an optimal luminosity, use about a third of luminous powder. You can also mix in transparent colors, but you will loose luminosity by this - the darker the colors, the more.
Our luminous pigments are based on strontium aluminate and shine many times brighter and longer than traditional luminous pigments based on zinc sulfide. The powder is non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals. The pigments can be mixed not only with epoxy resin, but also with other carrier liquids or binders (e.g. lacquer, gel, silicone or wax). Due to the small particle size, we recommend wearing a paper mask until the powder is mixed into the carrier material. The heavier / thicker the carrier, the less the pigments settle. When using low-viscosity resins, depending on the desired effect, it may be necessary to mix up the particles again with a stick after the resin begins to gel.
Attention: not waterproof! To mix with water-based substances (e.g. acrylic paint) please use our waterproof luminous pigment!
