Can anyone tell me where i can get fluorescent orange paint in the UK?
I have an unfinished JEM body on the way and we all know that if you paint it yourself you can't have a boring run o' the mill paintjob :P
I'd prefer it in a spray can if possible.
Also, i saw somewhere on the net a clearcoat that glows in the dark, so whatever you paint looks normal in the light but the clearcoat glows.
Anyone know what this is?

I believe that you can pick up fluorescent orange sprays in Halfords.

As for the glow in the dark clear, I can't say I've seen it before.
Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

thanks

this is the stuff.
Unfortunately I can't have the aerosol shipped over (for obvious reasons) and it'd cost a bit much :P

plastikote do both flo orange and glow in the dark spray, then put some clear coat on top and in theory you're away. I've not tried either paints though. I did a guitar in their paints a while back and I was pleased with the results - did another recently and the results were not so good even though I took more care and time on it.

if its fluorescent orange, u wont need any glow in the dark clear coat. Just get a black light and it will glow bright orange and look a amazing! i did this to an old squire bass with fluorescent green. its awesome!

EDIT: As for where to get your paint, im not too sure. Here in the states, I just went to the normal store which sells spray cans, and they had Fluorescent yellow, orange, green, blue and pink. Have u tried searching yet? Hope i can help a little bit!

I used the Halfrods fluorescent yellow on a previous project of mine.



Check out my gear pics on my profile to see how it turned out.

I used grey primer (Halfrods again) on the body so it looks more green than the white pick guard that wasn't primed.

Whatever you do, just use white primer, is all i can say.
And tbh dunno if glow in the dark actually works that well. remember you need to "charge" glow in the dark paint under a bright light then it doesnt last that long anyway.
Flourescent colours look amazing under UV, really glowing. Just play in places where UV lights are plentiful!

I could mount one on my pedalboard? (which currently consists of a bossOS-2 and a Cry Baby but it's gettin there)


also, did you just need one can of paint and one of primer for that?

p.s - "Chernobyl Special" you sir are now a hero in my eyes

I found that on both occasions 1 can would do a body. I did white primer (one can) then when it was finished my seccond colour (Black or Red depending on the guitar) took half a can.

Plastikote cans are smaller than Halfords though. Also lots of thin coats really is the way to go.
