    Hey all,

    I'm thinking about doing a glow in the dark paint job, but I have a couple of questions.

    Firstly, which is a good brand of paint to use?

    Secondly, is there anything I should know about using them? Anything I need to watch for in terms of coverage etc?

    Lastly, how long does the glow effect last for? I've owned a few glow in the dark trinkets, stickers etc. over the years and the effect slowly diminishes over time, could I expect the same thing to happen to my custom?

    Many thanks in advance.
