Is this paint florescent or black light reactive? In other words would this work without the black light in place?

It's black light reactive... it wouldn't glow at all without the black lights :(

That's a good question... I'm not entirely sure, it was music the model liked. Lemme ask her and see if she knows :)

According to the model: "I don't remember the name of the song but it is by Waterbone. It is either off their album Orion Prophecy or Tibet."

Hope that helps!

I used florescent paints that glowed in blacklights and then shined blacklights on her. :)

ohh cool, could you explain more about blacklights? lol, I haven't heard of them before lol, are they actually just lights that shine black or like a special effect lighting?
Also, are the florescent paints expensive?
Reply
:iconhoihoisan:
HoiHoiSan Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2009
Well, finding florescent paints isn't hard, they're usually very easy to pick out. They literally look like neon colors. Blacklights are UV lights, usually used in things like growing plants. They come in florescent tubes, being a blacklight just means it glows in the ultraviolet color range. :)

ohh cool.
How would you use a blacklight on yourself though, would it not be difficult to set up?

:iconhoihoisan:
HoiHoiSan Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2009
I just mounted them to stands with hooks when I was working with models. That way I only have to worry about the camera.

Everyone already mentioned Cortana and Tron.
That makes me feel sad and unoriginal.

Aww, but it's still valid. :) There are only a handful of glowy characters in the world. I did do a cortana blacklight shoot once, those were the first images on my gallery :)

Someone else said Midna too! Now I wanna find someone to do a Midna cosplay with blacklight paints. That would rock!

hellsyea! that would totally rock. there was this one cosplayer, perhaps the best Midna i've ever seen. I think she's on DA. I'll have to find her again. She'd probably do it :3

Well, unless she's in the Texas area, it'd be a little difficult. But still, neat idea nonetheless. :)

It's OK, it's on my list of "Cool costumes I want to do now", along with a Cortana in blacklight costume and a Matrix code in blacklight costume =}

There are lots of different ways you can go about it. A lot of "professionals" say that acrylic paints are bad and could be a liability and I'm sure they are, but I've never had any problem with them. I use an airbrush with airbrush acrylics, which are used on t-shirts, but it washes off pretty easily when I mix bubble fluid in it. I've never had any with an allergic reaction yet and I've been working with it for ages. It washes off easily and stay on pretty well.

I used the florescent colors. :)

Nah, the lines on Cortana are MUCH smaller, while the lines on a Tron character are about the same size.

Wow, maybe subconsciously, but no I wasn't thinking of that when I did mine. I was thinking more of scene from a manga Negima I read where a girl was covered in all these magical runes to unlock her true magical power and it looked a lot like circuit boards. :)

That's a scan of the page where it came from.

Very cool! I was wondering if it was me or something else that inspired you. I think =JennaBlack also did blacklight circuitry on a model at one point for her Cyberpunk pin-up series as well.
