    I'm looking into some UV paint and I got a lot of questions for those of you who are familiar with these.

    For starters, what's the best and brightest UV paint to use?
    I was looking into using createx wicked UV base with their fluorescent paints as they suggest. I plan on playing with some t-shirts, but primarily want to use it on bedroom walls and this is a good water based solution. Or is there a better UV paint?

    Also, can these be top coated, to help protect artwork on walls? If so, what's best to use to protect it?

    I used the wicked on a pic not to long ago, looked great. The glow white was rubbish but I may of had a bad bottle?? Some of the colours really pop! The floor part does wear off over time though.

    There's a video on coast of gearbox using UV paints he had the white and it worked well, the glow base does flow fine and can be used to create more colours, the fluro colours don't need it as they pop under UV some colours are better than others, check my thread on my Avatar painting and you will see them in action :)

    With us mere blokes, it's always human, we just blame the auto correct so we don't have to look stupid, I mean being stupid is bad enough without going out of our way to look like it, it would be cool to have ten babies all at once, do the weekly shopping everyday while tending to said ten babies, cooking dinners for the whole family including said ten babies, and washing and ironing for everyone again including said ten babies and still have time left over to watch every soap there is and airbrush, but god didn't make us that way, he thought it would be handy for the ladies to have something to laugh at when the compressor breaks down, the closest us blokes get to multi tasking is tripping over that loose thread in the carpet because we didn't fix it three years before when we were told to, thereby finally puling out said thread whilst forcing in that dangerous loose screw on the threshold with our face, and instead of being thanked for finally getting around to it, we get laughed at, it seems the very point of our existence is to be ridiculed by the fairer somewhat stronger sex, I tried to impress my wife after watching a YouTube video on flambe cooking and all she did was laugh and said "very nice dear but I've never had a boiled egg done in that fashion" smug bitch, sometimes I just don't know why I bother:confused:o_O:confused:o_O:confused:

    some of the lady folks around here may think you are a little off the mark with that comment, after all there are some that could do the weekly shopping, cook dinner, do the washing, watch the soaps, airbrush AND fix the compressor when it breaks down, trimmed the loose thread on the carpet, (because pulling it would only make it worse and more noticeable) and as for forcing in that dangerous loose screw on the threshold with your face, well.....! using your head as a hammer on a SCREW is just insane, its much quicker to use a tungsten hard fingernail nail to screw it back in..... all this while caring for said 10 babies !!
    and just for you Malky I would ensure that the Flambe'd egg that had been prepared with love was swiftly wrapped in minced lambe and fried off to a lovely scotch egg :D
