Hello!!

I would like to add coloured light for my Halloween decor, but I don't know which colour to choose for the spookiest effect. Zombie green? Purple/Violet? Orange? And what kind of effect would I achieve with a black light bulb?

Another question, as I am not sure to find the appropiate colour in the shops here (Halloween is only at its beginneng here in Europe), what kind of pen can I use to colour a normal lamp bulb?

Thanks a lot

I adore black lights when I want spooky effects. They glow vaguely purple, but their best known effect is to make certain colors (whites, neons) light up and glow. People's teeth tend to glow, too! *grin* Great fun.

Sharpie Pen!!! (ok i've never used one but they would probably work) or maybe any permanent pen...

Well, and as most of my decor is made of black objects, is the black light a good solution?

I'd maybe use an OHP (overhead projector) pen as it's used to a bit of heat - I'd be careful though!

I was very surprised to see black lightbulbs in the Pound Shop in England!! Yay!

If you still need the light to see well, the black light may not work well, as it doesn't really emulate much light at all.

In my experience, however, purple icicle lights are awesome outdoors at night.  Add a witch costume, bubbling cauldrin, and a disgruntled black cat, and the kids in your neighborhood will be scared of your house ^.~
