Step 3: Mix Clear Coat and Glow powder

Put on your respirator and mix about 4-6 oz of clear per manufacturers instructions. After mixing add about 1 heaping Tablespoon of glow powder. Mix well and spray a tack coat followed by a full wet coat of glow clear. Work in sunshine and watch out for over-spray on your or your neighbors cars. let charge up for 10 minutes and carry wet parts into a darkened garage or shed and check out your results. More powder equals more glow and more coats equals more glow. Try to get a satisfactory result in 3 full coats if possible.
Do not rush and constantly stir or agitate your paint gun cup as the glow powder drops out of suspension fast.

Do as I say not as I do. Use rubber gloves while mixing and spraying. 

I chose to spray the underside of the seat first then flipped it over onto bolts and nails I put in the bumper and hinge holes. This allows the seat to be sprayed flat , reducing the chance of runs.
Let me level with your here for a second. <br>Electrical engineering = Pretty smart<br>General relativity = Pretty freakin smart<br>Glow in the dark loo = GENIUS!<br><br>
<div class="media_embed"> Reminds me of this which I came up with the other day</div>
This is awesome and I need it.
My kids just explained to me what I am looking at! Love it.
It's a freakin' portal! Omg that is GENIUS!
wow cool idea i might...no...i will do this to my toilet sit =) at my new place love it!!! where can i get that glo paint....
We were using one of those UV air purifiers that looks like a Star Trek prop;<br> but the bulb died after about 6 months.<br>Still made a cool looking night light for the john.<br>Not sure how much good it did.
OK, so the million dollar question, now that i'm sure you've had this for a while.... How long will this paint finish last before it rubs off completely??
Ok, forgive me of my ignorance because i've only read the first step. If this is intended for the toilet ok, but if not, why wouldn't you get a new toilet seat?! Lol
Step 1: Install blacklight<br>Step 2: Turn on said blacklight<br>Finished if you are a guy.
i love it,and maybe a little glow stuff would rub off on to the ole lady's rear end,wow! just think!
My wife just trained me to sit down while ur-a-nating... And then there is NEVER an errant shot in the dark.. OR THE DREADED. &quot;you didn't put the seat down&quot; lecture... Because now I have no reason to put it up. Whipped? Nope... &quot; happy wife=happy life&quot;. <br><br>But great idea for the kiddies bathroom!
Have you asked your wife why women never learned to make sure the toilet seat is in the down position before sitting down like mean have learned to do, whenever we have to take a dump? ;)
Ditto to the sitting and I don't miss if I've had one too many. But I think contrasting chevron arrows would be a help to the design.
Is missing the target ACTUALLY worse than waking up the wife? Love the project all the same!
LOL not really except if you leave the seat up.<br>You KNOW what happens when you do that? LoL In the Dog House..
maybe a whole glow in the dark toilet bowl? talk about freaking out grandma and grandpa and crazy aunt betty! <br> BTW- <br>It is not that we men fail to lower the toilet seat upon completion of our task at hand. It is that women fail to return the seat to the upright position. How could they be so inconsiderate? (all in good humor :) )
Speaking as another wife, let's put it this way: if he misses, and I have to go before it dries, thus ending up stepping or sitting in pee, he'll wish he turned on the light. <br>
speaking as a wife, YES! lol
Have you ever had 'sweaty butt transfer problems with the glow paint?How wear resistant is the clear coat to constant butt scrubb? Guess what I am saying is........would it not be better to paint the RIM of the toilet and not have to listen to the old lady kvetch about you pissing on the seat?
Excellent idea BTW.<br><br>In the immortal words of Captain James T Kirk<br><br>&quot; Like a poor marksman. You Keep Missing The TARGET ! &quot;<br><br>(Star Trek -II: The Wrath of Kahn).<br><br>It's radiation from Genesis Device your children will come out glowing in the dark.<br><br>I simply used one of those flat led lights strips under a plastic ring glued to the outer sides (not in front) of the bowl with a light detect sensor to turn on when it's dark. No danger of shock.
love love love it - great way to add that &quot;wow&quot; factor everybody's always blathering on about to an otherwise rather humdrum crapper.
NOW....i know how to get Butt cancer (-_-)
i always thought you got butt cancer from butts.
LOL reminds me of a Rescue Me episode.. &quot;I got a$$ cancer!&quot;
This is giving me ideas! Our tub is an old, stained fiberglass one and I've been thinking of painting it with acrylics and clear-seal. As in, decorated, fish and weeds and having fun painted. Adding some glow-in-the-dark is now part of the plan!
I totally agree with Eyebot117. Kudos
This is hilarious, Great house party surprise for the guests
This is awesome. Thanks for helping me plan my weekend. Would it be weird to receive one of these as a gift? I think the answer may be irrelevant, as I intend to make more than I have toilets to sit on.
I noticed some glow in the dark spray cans at the hardware store if a person wants to go on the cheap side. If you don't have much light shining on the commode (to charge up the pigment), you might try using the invisible UV pigments and playing with the new LED Black lights. This whole idea was born from a concept vehicle display I worked on with a Ford lighting engineer many years ago. By taking a clear casting and spraying a UV fluorescing clear on the inside and lighting with black light, the casting achieved this amazing transparent blue glow. This was before we had the newer hi-tech LED's which open up many more opportunities.

This is great! I'm sure I could find a &quot;use&quot; for this during Halloween!!
This. is. genius.
Brilliant! I used a dim night-light in a bathroom outlet, but this is much cooler.
