  • Neon Artmaking Tools: These include materials like neon oil pastels, neon tempera paint, yarn, crayons, colored pencils, air-dry clay, and more. As long as the material is neon, it will glow vividly under black light.

  • Draw or Paint: Use neon oil pastels or splatter neon tempera paint on paper or canvas.

  • Illuminate: Shine the black light onto your creation. Presto—instant magic! Your artwork will glow beautifully.

  • Adapt existing projects: Take a classic project you love and reimagine it with neon art materials. Glowing sea turtles, radiant sunset landscapes, or bright patterned flowers—all can be adapted for blacklight art.

  • Experiment: Use this as an opportunity to play and invent. Try different materials and see how they glow.

  1. Display:
