    Glow table

    Hi Mike,Really, really love the table. I'm going to try something similar and have been conducting tests using the glow powder and resin linked in your article. However, I can't get anything that matches the glow intensity of yours. I've been testing the ratio of resin to glow powder using your ratio in addition to one with increasing glow powder, in addition to the depth of the void that is being filled. I'm wondering how deep your voids are and whether that's the variable I'm missing? I'm also wondering how opaque yours are during daylight? I'm guessing that the glow powder concentration can actually get too high, making the resin too opaque and therefore limiting the amount, or depth, of light that can get in and out.Also, I was theorising how I could increase the glow and wond...

    Hi Mike,Really, really love the table. I'm going to try something similar and have been conducting tests using the glow powder and resin linked in your article.

I'm guessing that the glow powder concentration can actually get too high, making the resin too opaque and therefore limiting the amount, or depth, of light that can get in and out.Also, I was theorising how I could increase the glow and wondered whether you'd experimented with mirrors? Given the glow resin will emit light in all directions when excited, less then 50% of the emitted light will be visible as the rest will go into the walls and floor of the void. If broken parts of a mirror were lined on the floor of the void, it would reflect this lost light back out to the viewer. I will try it with some broken mirror shards, but wondered whether you had first.Any suggestions would be appreciated.Cheers,P
