[Archive] fluorescence


To no end I have been googlins for fluorescent paints. Now the problem is I cant seam to find anything that I would truely clasify as a fluorescent blue or green paint that would be suitable for miniatures. Either its far too pale or it looks too dark their doesnt seam to be a middle ground. Does anyone know of a vendor of good fluorescent colours for miniatures ?


I can’t answer that, but I can tell you that most glow in the dark paint can be mixed with acrylic paints like GWs and not lose its glowing qualities.

My squig chariot was painted with a mix of really cheap kids playpaint and GW paints for the mushrooms:

That is amazingly cool! May have to (ahem!) borrow that idea if that’s ok?


I have no issue with that mate, its just an idea. If you can use it, I wouldn’t want to stop you from doing so. Good luck with it. :slight_smile:


Cool effect! :slight_smile:

that guy:

oh man!I wish this thread had hit before I painted my hellcannons, I had no idea glow in the dark was even an option!

Hashut’s Blessing:

Flourescent or luminescent? As in REALLY bright or glow-in-the-dark?

Vallejo do some good flourescent colours, but use the above method for glow-in-the-dark :wink:


I’ve got a tube of glow in the dark acrylic somewhere… now I need to dig it out!

(Idea yoink!)
