Step 5: Mixing the Glow Dip

Next it was time to get the Plasti Dip ready. I thought it would look cool so I put the powder in the sun for a while first. Then I mixed it in and stirred it thoroughly. The Plasti Dip is thicker than honey by a bit and it seems to keep the glow powder particles suspended just fine.
<p>I made a second attempt with the Leatherman Tool using <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-maintain-your-Multi-tool./http://www.instructables.com/member/Lftndbt/" rel="nofollow">Lftndbt</a>'s <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-maintain-your-Multi-tool./http://www.instructables.com/member/Lftndbt/" rel="nofollow">How to maintain your Multi-tool</a>. By following the instructions on taking it apart (and making a template diagram for how the parts go) I was able to dip only the stainless steel parts. I cut away more than I needed to, but because it folds over the edges, it seems to be mostly stably applied.</p>
Cool idea! I might even adapt the technique for use on some Halloween props. :D
Do try the stuff out. It is VERY dim after 15 minutes or so, although it readily charges under black light. It would be great for things like marking for safety in a dark stage.
