Frequently asked Questions.
How safe is the paint and what is a black light? -
The paint used is a waterbased non toxic paint and is completely safe.
Black light or Ultraviolet light has a wavelength shorter than that of visible light and cannot be detected by the human eye.
While UV light itself is invisible, it causes many substances to glow or fluoresce in a variety of colors that are visible and you
will probably have seen the effects of such lighting at bowling alleys and nightclubs.
How long does the ceiling glow for? -
Once dark the ceilings will have a soft glow for hours. If you charge the ceiling for a minuite or so with the black light supplied
you will get the most outstanding results. The paint will give you the same effect for up to 20 years.
Does my ceiling have to be smooth or painted black? -
Not at all. The paint dries a milky white colour so is ideal for using on white and off white ceilings. The star effect can still look
great on artex, but could make it hard to apply any stencils.
How long does a star ceiling take to create? -
Normally they take up to 3 - 4 hours to complete. The room is made dark with blackout material and all walls and carpets
Can i paint over a star ceiling? -
Two coats of emulsion will cover the effect completely if for some strange reason you wanted to do this???
