What is this paint?

Recommended Posts

So I recently got a handful of these jigs from a local sporting goods store, they glow in the dark, and they are just beautiful jigs.  Each color glows in the dark.  Anyways, I'm dying to know what this paint is?  I get that it's some kind of epoxy paint with pigments mixed in.  What kind of epoxy, pigments, and glow materials were likely used or could be used to make something similar with the high gloss and chip resistance?  I imagine the blue and the purple had to be more like a gel rather than a liquid, I envision the purple being drizzled onto the blue with a very small applicator.  Around the ey of the hook it looks like it was dunked into this blue epoxy. 

 

What are you guys thoughts?

Glow paint uses strontium aluminate particles.  You can buy powdered glow particles at Glo Nation's website.  Mix them with your epoxy clearcoat.

Every glow media that I have used is also fluorescent. Applying one color epoxy/ powder blend over a different fluorescent base gives a nice effect. I agree with the glo - nation reviews. Probably the best glow powders around .
