cosmic posters What kind of paint do you use?

cosmic poster I use a professional grade glow in the dark (phosphorescent) paint that lays down smooth and glows for hours! The paint I use is the same exclusive paint from Starscapes® that I paint my Stargazing Ceiling Murals with. I've tried a lot of glow paints available on the market and after extensive testing, I know what I use is the very best.go to top
poster overlay What colors are available on my poster?

posters The glow color I primarily use is glacier blue that glows a whitish, icy blue tone. Most of the poster will be painted with this color. Depending on the theme of choice and optional features, accent colors of cosmic blue, astro orange, and laser violet are also used. Some of the newer themes I'm working on will use some of those colors more. I also have at times use paints I personally mixed with red glow pigments and green pigments. I like using them in deep space fantasy themes for nebulas.go to top

duralar film Is it hard to install?

duralar wet media No, poster installation is as simple as sandwiching the overlay film between the frame glass and background poster! See pictures here on the Installation.go to top
clear acetate Will I be able to see my poster underneath?

clear acetate film Yes, because the Cosmic Posters Overlay film is completely clear, your background poster shines through it, even with the stars painted on there. The only thing you may notice is with darker posters, some stars will show as specks but from a distance, you won't even notice it. Some parts of the poster may look hazy because of the concentration of stars on the film. Lighter color posters or busy designs are best with the overlay film.go to top
duralar film How long will it glow for?

mylar How long it glows depends on how thoroughly it was charged with a blacklight. Because the posters are a lot smaller area than a full size ceiling mural, the appearance may not seem as bright as a ceiling, therefore, it is important to use a blacklight to charge the poster for viewing. 15 minutes of charging and your poster will glow for hours! Brightest in the first hour and slowly fading out. It is easy to refresh the brightness by flipping on the blacklight and allowing the poster to charge for a few minutes. Some elements in the deep space theme will need a blacklight to show its vibrancy.go to top
mylar film What type of blacklight should I buy to charge my poster?

mylar overlay Tube style blacklights work best. The glow paint can be charged with halogen and fluorescent lights too along with natural bright sunlight during the day. There are even compact fluorescent bulbs that work to charge the cosmic posters. There are poster blacklights that can be used above the posters to make charging easy. go to top
mylar overlay film Do I need a blacklight for the stars to glow?

acetate overlay It's best to use a blacklight to show the dramatic effects of the poster, however as previously stated in the question above, room light works as well as natural sunlight. The darker the room, the better the view of the stars too.go to top
acetate overlay film How long will the poster glow for after charging?

mylar poster The glow paint I use on the posters can hold onto light photons and release it slowly for hours of glow. Brightest in the first hour and slowly fade out. In some cases, after thorough charging, your poster will show signs of glow all night long.go to top
