Thread: UV Reactive Paint/Dye for Blade Color?

  1. #1

    Default UV Reactive Paint/Dye for Blade Color?

    I recently purchased an extremely high powered UV led flashlight and have been playing around with it. I wonder if anyone has created a saber that uses uv led(s) in the star and for a blade uses a tube coated in UV Reactive paint or dye.

    Similar idea to the photon blade but of course the dyes react to uv light not blue light.

    I don't recall anyone specifically doing UV reactive paint with their UV lights, but others have tried adding UV LEDs in general

    People have tried it. It's far less effective than using blue light + fluorescein (the green dye in Photon blades).

    Black lights have a neat effect because you're doing it in a darkened room, which makes the colors "pop" more. When you try to do the same in a well-lit room, it's a lot less impressive.
    We all have to start somewhere. The journey is all the more impressive by our humble beginnings. for the lazy man's resistor calculator! for getting resistor values the right way!
