I like it, what materials you use?

Only critique I have is that the tank drops aren't oriented in the same direction as the rest :o

I totally messed the tank up. The clear coat lifted the base coat in an area. I'm looking for another tank, I'll redo it this winter.

It's white base coat, and I used Folkart neon blacklight acrylic paint for the green effect. I had to thin it out a bit with distilled water to get it to drop correctly.

House of Kolor makes a glow in the dark paint. FYI

I've used it before. It's honestly not that good. It just doesn't keep glowing for more than a few minutes. I was looking into some other glow in the dark powder I could mix in with clear coat, but haven't really pulled the trigger on it. These were shit plastics. More of an experiment. we're going to do something to my buddy's Pro Street bike this winter.

Nice. I heard the same feedback about length of glow times, but wasn't sure... Perhaps look at Thermochromic paint?

Looks good!

Here's a pic of my old trackbike... I did a graffiti style paint job on it. Fairly intricate with lots of interesting sharpie detail work. I think it's still running around at Oregon tracks with that paint job... :o

I like that! I thought about doing a white base coat and then using a black sharpie doodle job on it. I'm not that great at artwork to be honest, I would spend an entire month trying to make it
