Glow Timelapse – How Long Will Aurora Glow?

In the video below, you’ll see a time lapse experiment we did to test how long the glows from Aurora last with different thicknesses.

We tried less than 1mm, 1-2mm, and 3-4mm thicknesses.

Timelapse Setup:

  • 24 hour run time.
  • 1 photo per minute (playback speed in video is at double speed to make viewing quicker).
  • Camera set to manual with fixed exposure settings to allow for true representation of glow variance over time.

Timelapse Conclusion:

  1. When 2-4mm thick and charged with sunlight for 2 hours, Aurora glow in the dark paint can remain visible for up to 24 hours!
  2. Aurora is brightest up to 6 hours.
  3. Aurora has good glows for 14-17 hours depending on thickness and charging.
  4. Keep Aurora above 2mm for best results.

Aurora, when used right, will outlast the night with strong glows all night long 🙂

We hope you found this video useful!

Glow In The Dark Fidget Spinner!

It was only a matter of time…

We made a fidget spinner glow in the dark!!

Actually, Aurora glow in the dark paint worked very well for this purpose! Check out the video below to see how great it looks spinning in the dark. The patterns even change with the different speeds the fidget spinner spins at. Didn’t expect that!

We went for simple horizontal lines on each arm of the fidget spinner, but you could paint dots, long lines going down each arm, zigzag lines and more. Experiment with different patterns and let us know what you get – send us photos/videos here of your glow in the dark fidget spinner! 🙂

Glow in the dark Easter eggs

Glow In The Dark Easter Eggs!

We had some fun this Easter creating these fabulous glow in the dark Easter eggs:

Aurora paint worked really well mixed with other Acrylic colours on the eggs. And, of course, we had to add some glitter sprinkled over the top!

As a quick tip, should you decide to try this as well, we recommend applying Aurora last and not mixing it in with the other non-glow-in-the-dark paint too much because Aurora’s glow effect diminishes when it gets mixed too much with another paint – especially dark colours as we did here with these eggs.

Hope you enjoy these glow in the dark Easter eggs, and we hope you had a happy Easter!

Sean Clarke's Spiderman Glow Stealth Suit

Creative Aurora mixing for a glow in the dark Spiderman stealth suit by artist Sean Clarke

We’ve just had this fantastic video sent in to us from Sean Clarke, a really talented artist in the UK.

Sean Clarke's Spiderman Glow Stealth Suit

Sean’s video shows him drawing a Spiderman stealth suit and towards the end uses Aurora glow in the dark paint to create the glowing sections of the suit.

Sean has been really creative with his use of Aurora and mixed it with some highlighter pen ink to give Aurora a more vibrant colour when under normal light. So Aurora looks fantastic both in the dark and with the lights turned on! Such a clever idea!

Check out his video below, and if you like Sean’s work, be sure to follow him at these links:
