Glow Powder Sizes
We sell Nebula Glow in the dark powder in a number of different sizes suitable for a couple of rings, or larger quantities (10g, 20g, 50g & 100g) As an example, the image of the 6mm inlay ring pictured has just 1g of glow powder applied using CA glue.
Glow in the dark powder
Glow pigment powder works by being "charged" in daylight for around 10-20 minutes and then discharges that has glow time for up to 10-12 hours - It's amazingly bright! As this is a premium quality glow powder it gives the brightest and longest lasting glow.
In daylight the powder is a white/very pale yellow colour and this magically transforms to an aqua blue Nebula long lasting glow when in the dark.
Resin, CA & Epoxy
Once sealed and coated with CA, two part epoxy, one part UV resin or other mediums etc. the ring will be completely waterproof and a great ambient light source. The particle size of the glow powder is very small (approx 30mu), so whenever you mix glow powder or sprinkle glow-in-the-dark pigments or are working with resin crafts you should wear eye, hand and breathing protection. Although CA glue and UV resin dry quickly, you should allow 7 days for the full curing effect to take place.
Along with glow rings, aqua glow in the dark powder can be used to make incredible effects for arts and craft projects, keyrings - easy to find keys in the dark, pens, signs - the list of projects with affordable glow-in-the-dark pigments goes on...
