How to brighten the glow.
Step one. Go about the normal step by step instructions according to your application.
Step two. Ignor the "place in bright light/sunlight step.
Step three. Buy a black light, either a CFL or any tube version.
Step four. Use the black light as the light source. 10-20 sec per 4sq in. should work. Larger projects, you'll need to move either the project or the light to "charge" the glow.
Using a black light will give hours of glow. The bright glow initially will fade somewhat after about a min. The following glow will still be brighter than what the sunlight/bright-light does.

I was surprised and pleased to see that this paint is clear and thus simply adds a glow in the dark layer to whatever you spray it onto.
Application is as simple as one would expect from any aerosol application.
I sprayed it on the following: kayaks, kayak paddles, fire lighters, light switch covers. It works, if the items get well charged up, and I am sure the more coats one applies the better the glow would be.
There is a 'matte' feel to the items after it dries.

I made a clock and used this on the glass stones I used for the numbers. Works well. I want to try it on other projects. Works best if a light color is behind it. On my project I use silver on the back of the stones after I paint them in the glow in the dark spray. Then I sealed them in clear.

Painted a planter with the glow in the dark paint. Read reviews beforehand and was aware of issues, but did it anyway. End result is very poor - planter does not glow. Used 2 coats of white primer on beige plastic planter before the glow paint. Kept putting on glow layer to increase glow effect - in fact, used FULL CAN of glow paint. After planter in sun all day, get a faint green color on planter. Had high hopes for this craft idea because it was for a gift, very disappointed and not glowing about product. Recommend to avoid purchasing glow in the dark paint that most likely will not work as indicated.

It states you can use this over a light color (in fact, this is suggested). I always read directions, so this isn't a classic case of user error; It was well over a month after spraying metal address numbers with Rustoleum 2X Ultra Cover Satin (which is normally awesome on its own btw) before I decided to use the glow in the dark spray over the white, so I KNOW the white paint had fully cured. As soon as I sprayed a light coat, I noticed the paint had a crackle effect. Not only did it ruin the white finish, but it didn't even glow. Definitely returning this, considering it's twice the price of their regular spray paint, which I'll need another can of to fix these numbers.

I bought the paint to use on a project I found on Pintrest. Painting small gravel pebbles and putting them in my river rock pathway. I also sprayed a garden gazing ball. I guess it takes artificial light because sunlight doesn't seem to work. It was a waste of money. I wanted it to work!

To get the glowing effect you need to put a lot of it on to get it to glow enough to see it and let it dry between applications. I would not buy it again as it was quite expensive at about $10 if it worked well that would be different.

1st thing I noticed is that even though it's in a normal size spray can, they give you less oz of paint in it compared to buying regular spray paint. 2nd - I was skeptical of the glow it lets off in some marketing pictures. I was stunned when I sprayed a few things and absolutely NO glow what so ever. It goes on clear, I had a scrap piece of wood that I put 2 coats on. Let it sit out in the sun for the day in hopes to get maximum glow and when I went to check it that night no glow what so ever. a few days later I tested on a plastic bucket with same result. They need to go back to the drawing board with this product.
