I just bought a tube of glow in the dark paint off of ebay for like ten bucks and its supposedly a new type of glow paint that will hold a charge for 14hrs and is invisible during the day.

My Idea is to go play a round of disc golf painting the top signs on the baskets that have the hole number with this glow paint. It shouldn't upset anyone because its completely invisible during the day and glows all night. Its so perfect because it will charge all day and glow all night!

It is supposedly weather proof too but I'll probably put some clear coat over it on another day to protect it.

Have any of you tried this? How did it work out if you did?

The ebay store that sells the paint is called Ready Set Glow, and the address is http://stores.shop.ebay.com/READY-SET-GLO__W0QQ_armrsZ1

Sounds great I've thought of the idea, but if it's a public park could be charges with vandalism so beware.
Right, I thought of this but there is already so much vandalism in out park I think the rangers might welcome this non destructive form of vandalism... Especially since you can't even tell its there during the day. I'll be careful though.
Not sure how much you bought, but it may be pricy to do all of the signs, as you usually need multiple coats. I have used glow paint for many projects, some colors work better than others and the background color and/or material that you are applying it to can also also effect how bright it is. Good idea though, let us know how it works.

I hope it works. It would be so cool to see peoples reactions to the baskets when they randomly start glowing.

What projects did you use glow paint on? just curious.
I have used it to paint air brush designs on two beer pong tables that we play with black lights and a few R/C car and truck bodies.

Here are some pics of one of the tables:

Those are so awesome!
I'm interested to see how this turns out. Let us know!
dont ever let anyone ever tell you that you cant do something or nothing would ever progress or get done
Oh, also you cannot clearcoat over UV paint. This is due to the fact that most clear coats contain UV inhibitors so the paint will not charge up as bright as it should or last as long. There may be some clear coat that doesn't block UV light but with most glow paints they say not to clearcoat. On the R/C bodies I painted, you paint the inside of the plastic so it doesn't need a clearcoat and even that thin layer of clear plastic made the color look kind of dull.

Ok, I just won't use clear coat at first and see how it works. I really don't think it will be that big of a deal to the park. Most people will appreciate it and there are hardly ever park rangers around, so I'm definitely gonna do it, there is no danger of anyone telling me not to.

I'll keep you updated with this project as it developes
