Rosco Fluorescent paint is available in 9 brighter than normal colours which "glow" vividly under ultraviolet lights, Rosco Fluorescent Paints can create a wide range of exciting effects. They can be used to create special effects using ultraviolet black light or combined with other Rosco Scenic Paints to make the colours more vibrant.
Fluorescents use the same high quality, water-base, vinyl acrylic binder found in Off Broadway Paints. It is suitable for use on most surfaces after the surface has been properly prepped.

Dilution: Fluorescent Paints should be used straight out of the can. They can be diluted with water if necessary, however this will reduce the hiding power of the paint and may reduce the brightness of the "glow."
Surface Preparation: Surfaces should be clean, dry and free from dirt and grease. Prime porous surfaces, except fabrics, using Rosco Tough Prime. If painting a new plaster surface, prime wall with a commercial primer/sealer designed for raw plaster. Then use Rosco Tough Prime as a final preparation. Use a white base coat to achieve the most dramatic colour effects.

* Invisible Blue is a milky white paint that fluoresces to a pale blue under blacklight. When painted over light coloured surfaces, Invisible Blue is difficult to detect. However, it can be seen when painted over dark or black colours.
