    Sure thing, we call it Bubblegum Red, it's definitely not your regular 'firetruck red'


    Here it is:






    The glow differs from the 'day color'.
    Just the nature of the material, the natural in which the material glows.
    Just like the song..'It's just the way that it is......falala"

    This is our most popular product: GLow-On Original.


    Characteristics:
    -Opaque.
    -Great glow.
    -Great appearance in daylight conditions.


    The 'Day Color' is a light yellowish white, the Glow Is Green.


    We are going to do some mixed sets with the Orginal on the front sight and colors on the rear sights.
    So next is Hot Pink, then Green and Aqua.

    Hello, everyone, I hope you are having a great week.


    We're back with the Glow-On Hot Pink
    Let's update...
    We're going to talk about Hot Pink in a minute.


    In the meantime, we did this:


    We pushed the front Orange dot off with the help of our wooden stick.
    It's bee a couple of days so it's dry and it's hardened a bit.





    We've cleaned the front sight and removed the white dot because it looked very worn out already. As you can see here:





    Here's what we have to work with: A clean surface, no white dot, we're going to find out if our product really covers dark surfaces since it's opaque.
    We can see the orange glow dot we just removed in the shadows.





    We're coming back with more after some commercials.....Lol


    Please share.

    Goodness! We lost internet connection for a minute...But we're back!
    So, we removed the front orange dot, we removed the original white dot and this is what's left:

    Now we paint the front sight with the Hot Pink Glow-On.





    As always, we load the small wooden applicator and fill the small vid on the front sight.





    After a couple of fails, this is what it's supposed to look when you do it right:
    A generous bead of paint, it will shrink a bit after it dries, it will harden over the next few days to the consistency of synthetic cement.

    Now we use a blow dryer to accelerate the drying process and this is our new creation:
    Rear sights: Orange
    Front sights: Hot Pink


    Frankly, I would have preferred the orange on the front because is a warmer color, the Hot Pink is really a cold magenta.
    in other words...




    If 'rear-front-rear' is a schematic description of the gun sights arrangement as viewed from behind the firearm.


    Then, good combinations could be:


    'Green-Yellow-Green'
    'Blue-Red-Blue'
    'Pink-Orange-Pink'
    'Aqua-Original-Aqua'
    'Red--Orange-Red'
    Etc.


    Then 'Any Color-Original-Any Color', as a general rule.


    This looks good, however.







    Have a good night everyone, tomorrow we'll paint the whole thing Pink!

    Happy Thursday everyone!


    WE continue with the Hot Pink set up.
    It's really a 'process red' or 'magenta'.


    An update on the front sights.
    After we removed the old white paint dots and cleaned the sights, we applied the Glow-On Pink and after it dried it had a little dimple right at the center, which is normal if the void is deep.

    So we added a new bead of paint over it:

    We decided to remove the white dots on the rear sight because they're in bad shape.
    You don't have to unless they are in real bad shape.
    Glow-On covers dark surfaces very well as we will demonstrate.
    Most other glow in the dark products need to be applied over a white surface for them to glow because they are very transparent.









    So far this is what we have:

    Next, using the perennial wooden stick we apply the Glow-On to the rear sights.
    As always, a small bead of paint, like a pearl.


    We used some plastic bottle to keep our hand stable during the application, we just 'touch' the surface a couple of times with it to build up the glowing dot.

    Hot Pink or 'process red' is one of my favorites.
    It's very bright and visible.


    Here' the final result with the Hot Pink:

    Let's move on now!


    Next is GREEN.


    This time we'll do a:
    Pink-Green-Pink combination, or Pink on the rear sights and Green on the front.


    The main reason is Green s closer to the center of the visible electromagnetic spectrum our eyes can perceive, along with Yellow.
    Plus the glow is a bit more intense.











    We'll be back in a bit, We need to resume other activities now.
    Please share....

    A small break while we prepare the next color set...Green.


    Our source of inspiration is our customer base.
    Consider this outstanding example.
    A great execution, even the logo has been updated!
