Phosphorescent paint stores light and emits it again in the dark; put another way, this paint glows in the dark in a biliously radiant green colour. This phosphorescent paint is used to make things like lightswitches, fixtures, stairs, emergency exits or dangerous edges highly visible in the dark - but also to paint a shining star over childrens´ beds.
On the other hand, the transient glow can be used for artwork on a canvas or - well, we hesitate to steal anyone´s thunder with more suggestions!
Whatever! Depending on the preceeding amount of direct light it has been exposed to, Urban Fine-Art Phosphor(escent) will last from one to three hours in the dark, whereby it will glow weakly for a couple of hours more.
The fine spray will be dust-dry in about five minutes (depending on the thickness of the coat, of course) and completely dry in a few hours. When thoroughly dry the paint is weather resistant. After use, the can should be turned upside down and sprayed for about three seconds in order to evaculate any paint in the nozzle and prevent it drying the opening closed.
Please note: for this paint, the spray head cannot be exchanged.
Aerodecor spray paint and Marabu Buntlack Spray are pigmented lacquers that contain solvents and have acrylic resin-based binders. After about 10 minutes, the satin-matte coat of film will be dust-dry - when completely dry it is weather resistant.
The two sprays are different from one another in the nature of their sprays: The Aerodecor Spray has a somewhat finer mist than the Marabu Buntlack, with the result that the latter is smoother after drying. The Aerodecor is for this reason the more popular for model making purposes. Both paints adhere well to dry, dust-free and grease-free surfaces like those of cardboard, paperboard, plastic, wood, glass, stone, metal, clay and various natural materials.
While Marabu Buntlack is, according to the manufacturer, compatible with polystyrene, the Aerodecor should first be tested before being applied to rigid foam materials because it can indeed have a corrosive effect. As a basic rule for polystyrene, all spray paints should be applied in many thin coats from an appreciable distance because the propellant alone can often be the cause of damage to polystyrene foam. To be safe, preliminary tests should simply be made before every application.
When finished, the spray can should be turned upside-down and further sprayed until only the propellant without paint is emitting. This will prevent the can from leaking and the nozzle from becoming blocked.
