Glow in the Dark Stars

   
   

I have set up this page to create awareness about the different glow in the dark stars on the market and give you some information that will help you make a more informed choice if you are in the market to set up your own glow in the dark stars.

My micro stars are my own unique art and I have designed these glow in the dark stars to create the most realistic star ceiling illusion possible. Common glow in the dark stars are found in two basic forms, stickers and bulky stars. I have set up a comparison showing my XVR star room fitted with the other types of stars to show the clear difference between these products.

   
         
   

Glow in the Dark Stars - Micro Stars

   
   
Glow in the dark stars with true variation and realism Glow in the dark stars with true variation and realism   My glow in the dark stars create the ultimate star ceiling illusion. They work by giving you variation on your ceiling from very faint stars to super bright stars and even movement. I create this variation by controlling the colour, mass and intensity of each glow in the dark star as I hand make it, this result is not achievable with mass produced glow in the dark stars.
   
         
   

Glow in the Dark Stars - Stickers

   
   
Glow in the dark stars made from cut glow vinyl.   You can see what happens when you remove the critical variation of your glow in the dark stars. These stars are simply cut by using a vinyl cutter to cut circles or shapes from a sheet of glow vinyl. This method is quick and cheap and will produce the look of glowing dots with no realism as a star ceiling.
   
         
   

Glow in the Dark Stars - Bulky Stars

   
   
Glow in the dark stars made from injection moulded plastic.   These bulky glow in the dark stars are injection moulded plastic and as with the stickers they have no variation and also no realism. I think they at least have a style about them and for the few dollars you will pay for a pack they offer there own unique look. At the end of the day you get what you pay for.
   
         
   

You can also get painted glow in the dark stars on your ceiling by an artist however by it's very nature painted stars will die off very quickly and you will not have the longevity that you will get with a designer product like my XVR glow in the dark stars.

The reason for this is very simple, painting a glow in the dark star as an individual dot or trying to flick glow paint on your ceiling to get multiple glow in the dark stars in one shot will give you stars without any pigment mass.

Why will this matter?

In order for each individual glow in the dark star to perform at a certain glow level and for a given amount of time it needs to have a certain level of glow in the dark pigment loading. The required loading above a certain level of brightness is not achievable by a painting method as there is simply not enough mass for each glow in the dark star to contain the correct pigment.

Think of each glow in the dark star as a body of water, the correct amount of water would be say 9oz yet the painted glow in the dark star can only hold 2oz because it has no physical mass to hold any more.

Having said this more intensity does not = a more realistic product. Take fibre optics this is a great example of too much intensity and no control. Great glow in the dark stars will have a range of intensity from very faint to very bright but fibre optics are on or off and when they are on they are far to bright to produce anything even remotely close to realistic.

My glow in the dark stars are unmatched in realism they are a designer product and the creation of many years of development so if you are after a very relaxing night sky illusion that will give you the look of the truly realistic night sky then my XVR-Glow in the Dark Stars are for you!
