Let your kids electrify their room with fluorescent acrylics!  Brilliant neon paint that looks great in daylight and glows under a black light makes for the coolest wall art.  My teenage son was over the moon excited to create this galactic inspired wall art for his bedroom.  The bright fluorescent glow of the neon paints amp up coolness factor.

 

Items needed:

Instructions:

We created this wall art using a fabric canvas backing but these paints can be used on many different surfaces.  Fabric, craft projects, wood and more work great for the intense pigments of this neon paint.

Step 1: Create a wood frame using 1 x 2 boards and 1 ¼” pocket hole screws.

Once your canvas is dry it’s ready to hang!  My son was so proud to have created this psychedelic wall art for his bedroom. I installed a black light bulb into his lamp and now he has the coolest bedroom wall décor!

And because of the vivid pigments, this wall art also looks great during the daylight.
