Tips For Creating “Transition Grays” When Painting UV Dual Image Effects

If your creating a blacklight effect in your haunt, then you know that finding uv related materials can be a challenge. Well, were here to help. Here comes some UV painting tips from the Blacklight Blaze newsletter. If you are painting a dual image, then here are some tips to help you make sure that when the daylight goes off, your blacklight image will pop off the wall!

From Blacklight Blaze

One of the coolest signature black light effects is the dual image: one image appears under normal lighting, while a different image appears under backlight.

The dual image can be as simple as an ordinary shift in color… or as complex as two completely different, unrelated images.

The most fundamental element to creating a dual image is the use of transition colors, or paint blends that transition from one color to another under black light.

For example, imagine a grey window turning fluorescent yellow under backlight… or dark grey eyes that glow red under backlight… or grey shadows suddenly becoming illuminated by a ghostly blue hue.
