    Thumbs up Proved! The simplest way to customize your gun sights, with Glow-On®

    First happy Mother's Day to all moms in this forum!
    We all have a debt for your sacrifice and hopefully we'll be able to repay it.

    Now to the point:
    Glow-On® Super Phosphorescent...Fancy name for concentrated glow paint, for gun sights and other small projects.

    This pictures prove that just two dabs of paint intelligently placed can add efficiency to any set of gun sights.

    One dot behind and one dot on the front.
    We are trying to be minimalists here.
    Two small dots.
    Simple things right? Pencils, a needle, a fishing hook, a pair of scissors, etc. will never cease to be used.

    Let's get back on track
    The little glow spots collect a certain amount of energy from light, to then release it slowly for a period of time.
    Just like filling a cup of tea and sipping it slowly until it's empty. A simple idea.

    It charges in a few seconds with a good LED, less than a second under the sun.
    Just like a cup under the faucet. It takes a few seconds.....
    Thus, leaving it under the sun or under a lamp for hours is like placing a cup under the open faucet for hours. it doesn't make sense!
    It works however, or hundreds of thousands of users would not already have it on their gun sights today.

    This is how you do it:
    Stir the paint and load a generous bead of paint.
    Place t in place with the small wooden applicator.
    Apply it boldly.
    Keep adding paint to the small bead to make it thicker or larger, drag it along to make a line.
    Let it dry and repeat.

    After it dries it looks like this:
    Mind you, this is over a black surface, to show we don't need to paint a white background before we apply the Glow-On®

    Will it stick? Of course it will the binder is specially selected to work that way.
    If it doesn't stick, the surface is dirty.

    No tricks here, I still use this disk today and the chain is still in place!:

    We have colors to choose from, unless you are set on a specific color the 'Glow-On Original', best glow available!
    First picture, from left to right:
    Hot pink, Bubble Gum Red, Orange Sherbet, Yellow , Original, Aqua, Green Blue, Purple Violet.
    Tip: the binder is milky, the color and glow gets better after it clears properly, in a bout a week.



    Same as before, just Green and Aqua have shifted positions with each other as well as Purple and Violet:
    Purple and violet are not being produced now.


    NOTE: There is a compromise between glow and color: Red and blue can never be perceived as bright as yellow and green...Just the way our brain is hardwired, keep this in mind please.

    Our Glow-On is affordable, Glow-On® is all we do.
    Please keep this in mind: Affordable is not the same as cheap.

    On the Left is our Glow-On®, to the right is, what a vendor on ebay called for a time 'Glow On', a liability for himself right?
    Me thinks he could make his paint and call it something else..not piggyback on a US registered mark.
    Glow-On® is a US registered trademark protected by American laws, Glow-On® is made in the USA, by American workers.
    Glow-On® ships directly from the manufacturer in Oklahoma.

    Everyone can make anything

    My grandma used to say..'You just don't blow glass and bottles come out of it'

    Here's what i'm talking about:
    You pay approximately 14 US Dollars for Glow-On..Only 9 dollars for a knock off..

    Again the one with the dot on the cap is Glow-On

    Perhaps a smaller wooden applicator for getting into those very small places is in the making?

    I know the wooden stick is a bit primitive. Still the best option, it works better than a small brush, one can take a small utility knife and 'carve' it a bit to a finer point.

    A small vial is good for several firearms:

    If the wood is primitive improvise.

    Thanks for the suggestion of a syringe applicator .
    We tried it and one manufacturer is actually doing this.
    Half of the contents is wasted while cleaning the tip.

    Glow-On is a quick drying product. It becomes malleable like putty in 20 minutes and it solidifies in one hour. it cures hard rock solid in one week. i think I'll make a video this weekend to illustrate this fact.
    in the meantime here is a small tutorial:
