Try shooting a clear coat on them. Sometimes that will bring more color out. Good luck Doug

kb, sometimes a little flourescence goes a long way. Try using them more as accents, and in specific patterns like fire tiger, which wouldn't look right without flourescent paints.

Kb, A couple of thoughts: Did you undercoat with white? Also, did you try looking at them in sunlight (If you happen to have incandescent lights, there's not much "neon" to flourescents)? Clemmy

I actually used cheap Apple Barrell acrilic paint from Walmart.
They have florecent and Glow in the Dark colors.
Completed with Devcon Top Coat

Be sure to paint white base coat
I think 2 colors make it look better
Looks better after clear coat
