How to use Sneakers Paints


Due to the density of the pigment, it can sometimes solidify at the bottom of the container. In such cases, it should be mixed thoroughly by stirring with a brush until it returns to its usual consistency.

To enhance the effect, paint the area white before painting with the Glow in the Dark.

For a better result use an ultraviolet flashlight to see outline paint.

To improve the resistance of the product, and when the paint is dry, we recommend to use the Sneakers Paint Neutral Base.

To accelerate the dyeing process between layers, use a hair dryer with caution (30 cm. minimum distance).


How long will the light emission time last?

The process of phosphorescence is in which energy absorbed by a substance is released relatively slowly in the form of light. So it is important to know that this product emits a slow quantity of light, enough to be seen at night or with the lights off.

During the first 3-4 hours the effect is stronger, and then the effect loses the power slowly until 6 hours. After that, you have to charge it with the natural or artificial light.


Does it emit light as much as the time it is exposed to light?

It is difficult to know how many time it has to be exposed to light, but this product emit small quantity of light so the effect is larger than the time exposed to light.
