I want to use this to make a starry sky for my son's room, over a blue surface, and I hope that the glow material will not be visible during the day, only at night while it is glowing.

I am painting a space mural in a little boy's room, the walls and ceiling are a medium blue/gray. I used three coats of flat ceiling white to paint the stars so they would be completely white. After stirring the paint thoroughly, getting all of the sediment off of the bottom.... I put two coats of the "Glow in the Dark" paint on the stars & they only glow a little bit. The room is rather dark, does not get a lot of sunlight and the lights in the room are not bright. Is there a certain bulb that will make the paint glow better?

Hi artsea,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
The Glow in The Dark paint will only be able to absorb as much light as it is exposed to.
The light spectrum of the light bulbs in the room can be enhanced to improve the quality of the glow.
Utilize "Reveal" light bulbs if you use incandescent bulbs, or "Bright White" CFL bulbs.

Answer: 
Happy to help, Bill! Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow in the Dark Paint is not recommended for exterior use because it cannot withstand the elements, even with a clear. If you're looking for an exterior product, may we suggest, Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow in the Dark Max Spray Paint?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did Nothing Painted some rocks in my backyard. A few already had paint on them and some did not. This glow in the dark did nothing!! I am going to take the can back in and see if I can get my money back. If I could give this zero stars I would

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not work for me Maybe I got a bad batch. I followed the instructions to a T (even added an extra coat for good measure) but it wouldn't glow. I am happy with customer service though as they refunded my money

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great at least, disappointing. We did 4 coats of this and it barely glowed. Very disheartening for a group of 11 year old girls and their science project. Especially with the time invested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from got me glowing My project was to produce signs for parking at a local business with not much lighting at night, so we devised a plan to use glow in the dark paint. Rustoleum has always done the job I needed and it worked again! Although my first attempt was not so successful due to all the glowing agent was settled in bottom and I should have stirred more intently; my second and third cans were a total success. The paint really does glow! It also benefits to "charge" in the sunlight. I recommend this product if you want to get glowing too. :)
