It works...kinda...but not worth the time.
I bought this paint to try the glow in the dark flower pots that have been a trend on the internet. I painted my flower pots white first, and I used a nice paint brush as recommended. My first attempt, I applied a thin layer, waited 45 minutes and applied another - per instructions. Even with a nice paint brush, it was SUPER streaky and not enough to really glow. 4 more layers later, and I had a streaky, messy, kinda glows pot. For my second attempt, I decided to go with THICK layers to try and avoid the streaks. This required 2 hours of drying between layers, and it still looks awful. After sitting out in the sun all day, in order to see the glow, you have to take it inside into a dark room, and the glow lasts MAYBE 6 or 7 minutes. Not the 2 hours that it says on the can. This paint might be worth it if you're doing light switch covers in a child's room, but even then, it won't look amazing, and the glow lasts only a short amount of time. I recommend just buying a glow in the dark version of whatever it is you're trying to DIY. That's what I ended up doing in the end.

Hi Kris, we hate to disappoint, however, the photo of the glowing pots that are prevalent on the internet are not painted with our Specialty Glow in the Dark Paint; they are either edited to appear to glow, or have internal, electric lighting. Our Glow in the Dark Paint may be used to paint a flower pot as you described, and painting several coats over a white surface will provide the best results. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
    This paint is AWESOME!!!
    I love this paint! Not sure why all the negative reviews, it glows really well ! I like that it doesn't have any color till you turn the lights off. I am impressed by how much it actually DOES glow. I hadn't even "charged" it with bright light, just turned off my normal indoor lights and it glows plenty. I LOVE it!!! Thank you Rust-oleum for another GREAT product, I'll be back for more, and will be recommending this paint!! Perfect!!

      We appreciate your feedback, Jimmy. For best results, Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow in the Dark Paint is recommended to be applied over a white or light colored surface. It is highly recommended to prime the object with a white primer. The darker the object is, the less likely the object will glow in the dark. The product needs to dry completely and charge under direct light for 2-3 hours for maximum glow. The painted object can be charged in natural or artificial light. The closer, more direct, and more consistent the strength of the light is, the better the object will glow. Any shadows, blockage of light, or inconsistency of light during charging (i.e. gradual sunset) will affect the objects ability to glow. The object can glow up to 8 hours under ideal conditions. Please note that the glow will continue to fade over time and will not be as strong as it was immediately after charging.

        DOES NOT WORK
        Bought with the intentions of some black poles to flow in the dark so nobody runs into them. I was very generous with the coverage and had plenty of light. Not even close to glow in the dark! Waste of $9. I had to go buy reflective tape instead. Terrible.

        Thank you for reaching out, Shane. Please keep in mind these few important factors to take into consideration. It is highly recommended priming the object with a white primer, such as Ultra Cover 2X White primer. The darker the object is, the less likely the object will glow in the dark. The painted object can be charged in natural or artificial light. The closer, more direct, and more consistent the strength of the light is, the better the object will glow. Any shadows, blockage of light, or inconsistency of light during charging (i.e. gradual sunset) will affect the object's ability to glow. The object can glow up to 8 hours under ideal conditions. Please note that the glow will continue to fade over time and will not be as strong as it was immediately after charging.

          Oh no, this is not what we like to hear Shelia. For best results using Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow In The Dark Paint, use over a white or light colored surface. Apply two coats 45 minutes apart to achieve maximum glowing effect. Give us a call at 800-481-4785 so we can hear more about your application and work to make things right.

          Let's see what we can figure out. For best results, Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow In The Dark Paint should be applied over a white or light colored surface. Apply using a good quality synthetic brush or ¼”- ⅜” nap roller. Avoid excessive brushing as this will reduce film thickness and protection. Use light even strokes to ensure smooth and uniform flow. Apply two coats 45 minutes apart to achieve maximum glowing effect.

          That is not what we like to hear, Patti! Keep in mind that our Rust-Oleum Specialty Glow in the Dark works best when several coats are applied over a white or light colored surface. The paint also needs to charge from a light source before it will be able to glow. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
