NOTE: Allow to dry between steps. Glow paint absorbs light and reflects the color back in the dark. Recharge the glow by exposing to a light source.

  1. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Snow White to paint the game board and top surfaces of the game pieces.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a small flat brush to paint the sides and backs of the Os with Sour Apple and the Xs with Jack-O'-Lantern Orange.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Remove the caps from Glow paint bottles and replace with Writer Tips. Use Green to create lines on the Os. Use Orange to make dots on the Xs.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a small flat brush to paint the game board sides with Jack-O'-Lantern Orange. Use Green Glow to fill in grid lines.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Let dry. Place in bright light for a few minutes to charge the colors.
