Paints


Here are the different kinds of paint and some descriptions....


* Fluorscent and Glow in the dark
- If you are using a black light use fluorscent or glow in the dark paints. these will glow brightly and you can get them in blue, green, purple, orange, yellow, pink, and red. I have found these colors in fabric paint, glue, spray paint, and acrylic paints.


* Metallic Paints
- These are good if you are making fake "electrical boxes", candelabras, weapons, space ships, cage bars, etc. I have found that the different colors metallic paint comes in are, brass, gold, chrome, silver, and copper.


* Stone Paints
- These work great if you are building a prop or part of a scene in which you want it to look like stone. Here are a few examples, a fountain, a wall, gargoyles, tombstones, pillars, statue, etc. There are many variations in colors to choose from in this type of paint, so it just depends on what you are looking for and what you like.


* TIP - Take a bunch of 12 pack boxes from pop, tape them together leaving large spaces between them to make a wall then spray with stone paint. When dry set up behind a scene and place a colored light behind the wall, it will light up the open gaps for a cool effect and if you have a fog machine pipe a line from it to where your wall is and where the light is shining through you will have "beams" of light! Really cool!!
