Introduction: "Glow in the Dark" How to Make a Pemanent Reusable Glow Stick

This is tutorial video on How to make a Glow stick in Glow in the Dark style. The materials in this experiment are simple, Epoxy resin, Straw, and some Phosphor Powder.
Phosphor Powder carries property of Phosphorescence, which is a specific type of photoluminescence related to fluorescence. Dont confuse this with Chemiluminescence used in Commercial Glow stick, which depends on energy of chemical reactions.

    Sadly, it don't ship internationally.
    Prehaps I will make a tutorial on how to make Glow powder later on.

    Actually just some Phosphor powder being secured in a straw or tube by epoxy, I think this is more eco-frienly as it is reusable!

    I plan to make the Copper doped Zinc sulfide as Phosphor powder, I would probably make via precipitation of Zinc sulfide in Zn ion and copper complex ion solution. I am doing some testing on it, see if that work.

    It would be useful if you could include a few suppliers of the powder - it's not easy to get, but it is vital for the project.
