« on: July 01, 2012 10:20:06 AM »

I am completing some of these little jars for a show coming up and am having some troubles. The jars I am using are about 6" high and I have covered the top inch or so with dots in 4 glow colours - lilac, blue, aqau and green. The dots are altogether with very little space between each one. They are on the inside of the jar. I am using glo nation paints, which were recommended. I have little fairies in different scenes on the bottom of the jars and wanted the dots to glow at night. These paints are clear drying, so you don't totally notice them during the day. My problem is that these dots are just not glowing! No matter if they are outside in the sunshine all day or on a windowsill all day, they just won't glow. I have tried contacting glo nation to no avail. That is why I am asking here. Hopefully someone will have the solution for me. I will try to post a photo later. FYI, I do have a black light flashlight and when I shine it on the jars, they light up beautifully for a few seconds, so the paint is working, just not like promised. Thanks for any help.

Not being familiar with the product I can only go on what you've posted. Do they have a product website where you can find an FAQ?

If the product is not doing as described, I would recommend taking it back and looking for a different alternative.
