    Hello,

    I was hoping someone could recommend a really transparent fluorescent paint. I’d prefer (if possible) to stay with water or alcohol based.

    I know most fluorescents are fairly translucent and don’t have much hide. But fluorescent paints are basically dyes attached to a polymer base. Looking at most images of fluorescent paint bottles it’s clear that they have some sort of translucent white base. I imagine this is because if customers aren’t using them over a proper base they get complaints about not looking like a fluorescent. Golden fluid and Pebeo fabric paint both claim to be transparent, but look like any other in the pictures of the bottles. Most transparent looking in the bottle I’ve seen online is the Schminicke inks.

    Just hoping someone knows of one that is close to a true dye look so I can avoid ordering 15 different brands to try.

    Thank You,

    Craig

    Pelikan or noodlers highlighter ink, that's about all I know of.
