Draw even when it almost doesn't glow and that is after few hours anyway. Then just light it for a few seconds again and continue.
And you can save a lot of electricity with this gadget.
......here is a list of some other things what you can do with this green Matrix-like board:
- Draw in the dark or in a daytime with whiteboard marker and erase with a tissue.
- Put thin paper on it and use the backlight to draw with pencil.
- Draw with LED light
- Read a book with it
- Navigate your way in dark
- Use it for messages
- Make a spot for keys or anything from it
- Do shadow images
- Or you can just watch how nice it glows:)
Here is a list of basic things i used. But in this tutorial i will tell you what else you can use and i´ll give you some tips. And i have first one: You can draw with a flashlight! It looks so awesome that you might build this just because of that:D Search the net, you can type "glow in the dark draw" and will know what i mean. I don´t have any LED strong enough to make pictures that be worth it, but i promise you i will.
glass - as Drawing layer
glow in the dark spray - as Glow material
mirror - as Base
gloss varnish spray
optional: mirror/aluminium foil/polished metal sheet/white paper -as Reflective material if needed
Don´t get confused, the idea is simple: you put Glow material between the Base and the Drawing layer. Drawing layer (which is in my case is a glass) is on top. And you draw on it just like on regular whiteboard.
