There are so many fun ways to experiment! All you need is a blue light and you are ready to go!

To make your own Glow in the dark canvas you will need:


Glow in the dark/fluro paint

Black Light

Canvas Art - Glow in the Dark

I actually poured our paint into little plastic shot glasses to make it easier for the kids to handle – this is optional.

I placed the canvas over a large tray to catch the drips & let my little guy pour his paint away. It was fun to watch the paint ooze down the canvas..we even had a few ‘paint races’ to see which colour would get to the bottom first!

Do this over and over until you are happy with your ‘art’.

Then wait for night time, flick off the lights turn on your blue light! It looks soooo amazing!

It still looks pretty cool without the black light – so it’s still great by day…it’s just extra magical at night!
