Introduction: Glow in the Dark Rocks

I got some glow in the dark paint from home depot. You can use it on most of things. It is ten dollars. You can probably buy it online or make it for cheaper.

Step 1: What You Need

Few small rocks White spray paint Glow in the dark spray paint Paint outside. The paint has fumes.

Step 2: White Paint

Get a few good sized rocks. Not big ones but not too small. Wash them off first. Paint the rocks white a few times on all the sides. Let it dry.

Step 3: Glow in the Dark Paint

When the white is dry put on a coat of glow in the dark paint. It needs to be shaken a lot. It comes out completely clear. Let it dry for five or so min. Put on at least three coats and let it dry over night.

Step 4: Glow in the Dark

Put it in sunlight to charge. It should glow for about four or five hours after dark. You can put theses outside or in a room or something for decoration. Ps. This is my first instructable so leave a comment for improvements on my next one. Thanks!

The glow in the dark paint is clear, so as long as whatever you are painting is a light color you should be fine putting it straight on.

You could take large rocks or small rocks and make some sort of symbol then put it in you yard so it glows at night, might freak a neighbor out from a second story window, lol
