If you are given a chance to make one thing glow in the dark, what would it be? I can say some people would prefer a pair of glow in the dark shoes, especially sneakers.
Sneakers are such a great investment that almost everyone wears nowadays. In recent years, some big brands have introduced glow in the dark sneakers, which are popular among the young. Whenever you go to a party or run at night, the luminous sneakers can catch most people’s eyes. But if you don’t want to buy these fascinating shoes at a high price, you can DIY your sneakers. With some simple glow in the dark materials, it is not difficult to get the job done. Today, let’s learn about how to make your sneakers glow in the dark.
Prepare all the things you will need:
Tape of painter
White or light-colored paint for leather shoes
Glow in the dark powder
Wooden stick for stir
For any leather shoes, make sure it is white or of light color. The dark leather will cover up the luminescence of glow in the dark powder. If not, please paint the shoes with the white or a light color similar to the luminous pigment you will use. After painting, let the shoes dry naturally and completely.
Clean the shoe thoroughly with shoe cloth and alcohol. And then use the painter’s tape to mark any areas that you don’t intend to paint.
Mix glow in the dark powder with the acrylic medium. First of all, pour a little powder into the plastic cup. Then add the acrylic medium to the container. Finally, use the wooden stick to stir well.
Please note that glow in the dark powder won’t dissolve in the medium but will suspend in it.
Check the glow-in-the-dark effect by irradiating your worktop with a black light. You may start to paint if the result is satisfactory. If not, you have to add more glow in the dark powder to cup and mix again.
Use the brush to paint the luminous mixture on your shoes. To examine your coverage, darken the light and irradiate on the shoes with a black light. Find the missing spots and repaint them.
If you don’t want to paint your shoes, you can add glow in the dark effects in other ways. For example, you can stick some glow-in-the-dark stickers or tape on the shoes.
If you find your shoes don't glow in the dark anymore, don't worry and you just need to recharge them. Glow in the dark powder is a kind of photoluminescent material. Aftering absorbing enough light energy, it will emit light automatically in the dark. Therefore, you have to put your shoes under the sunlight, UV light, or other light for 10-15 minutes. Then they can glow in the dark again.
Life is full of ideas, which depends on whether you are creative enough or not. Besides, the materials are also important. High-quality glow in the dark powder can help achieve the best effect for your shoes.
