    Thumbs up Our Glow-On Colors for gun sights, one by one

    We are going to talk colors here, we have 8 colors:
    Original, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red, Hot Pink, Blue, and Aqua.


    YELLOW: Fluorescent yellow, green glow.


    Yesterday I place three yellow dost over a small carry.
    in my opinion, Yellow is one of the best colors for anything you want your eyes to catch.


    The color is Fluorescent bright Yellow, the glow is green.


    Let's watch some photos.


    Every sequence under different illumination.


    Starting with daylight, then artificial, semi-dark follows and finally dark.

    Notice on the second picture, how the glow picks up when a shadow is cast over the rear sights, while the front marker still registers yellow.


    We use the small wooden stick.

    Three more photos of the Yellow color.







    After this we are using Red over the same gun, we removed the yellow by scratching it off with the same wooden stick.

    I'm back.
    It took just minutes to apply the RED paint.
    The photo processing and the uploading are what takes time! ARGHH!


    Before we forget this is the yellow before we installed over the gun sights...







    Here is where you visualize improvement, anything that makes these white dots look alive is an improvement.


    in its quest to avoid pain and to seek pleasure, our mind can do only two things: One is to remember the past, the other is to imagine the future.
    So let's imagine the future when we put this paint over our guns, yes?

    So let's move on to the RED color.


    First, let's dispell the idea that 'red' has to be a 'firetruck red' and nothing else.


    Dod you know why this basic red is used over green so often in uniforms?...Because at some distance it is invisible!
    in fact, the forest is really red, the reflection which is green is what our eyes can see.
    When the tree leaves get dry during the fall is when we see the real color of the tree structure: Red
    The brown on tree bark and such is a burnt red, burnt umber.


    Moving on, if you want a red that your eyes can catch, it has to be fluorescent red, the type that reflects UV rays from the sun.
    Fire truck red registers black under UV rays.


    moving on.....


    Here is a red dot which has dried and cured for a couple of weeks.
    All our vials have a reference dot on top.





    Here is the red paint vial o top of our model.





    Same here...Please notice how the white dots are dead!

    We talked about Glow-On Red, now we go blue!


    We want to emphasize a couple of important points:
    1.- the paint can be flattened with the same stick we used to apply the product, within the next 24 hours after the application.
    Of course, the longer you wait the harder it gets.


    2.- The correct way to apply the Glow-On: With the wooden stick.


    So we have this: One a pistol with red glow paint on the sights and a small vial of Glow-On Blue

    So we remove the red dots by pushing them off with the wooden stick..who knew the stick would be so useful..Right?
    Then we proceed to apply the blue Glow-On:


    We dip the applicator (wooden stick again) and load some paint we use some support for stability, one's hand a container etc.
    and place a generous bold bead of paint like so:


    A brush will absorb the product and clog the bristles.
    Please don't think of syringes and droppers that clog, I tried the stuff and it's a nightmare: It only works the first time.....


    'STICK with the basics' gets a new meaning here guys.






    We cheated a bit and used a blow drier to make thing happen faster.

    We decided to leave the red dot on the front.


    Many users get two colors for this purpose.


    The results were great!
    Please notice the blue dots still look like small beads, we just put them there and we will flatten them later like we did to the red dot.
    Different type of illumination were used.

    But wait a minute, we already tried the Yellow paint so let's try another combination...Blue and yellow this time.







    Check how the yellow glows green:

    We are finished trying red and yellow dots on the front sight.
    Now let's go Blue all the way and place a small blue dot on the front.

    We go from this:





    To this, by using the wide part of the wooden applicator, we basically flatten the dots with it.


    We get almost perfect circles because we initially placed round beads of paint, we let water-based binder work for us naturally.
    Now the markings are a tad bigger, which suits me right anyways, who needs dinky dots?





    Lets double check this profile from the rear sights.....


    Before....





    After....





    Beautiful....
