An Overview On Glow In The Dark Stars

Glow-in-the-dark stars are made from plastic or sticker paper, and they are coated with phosphorescent materials that absorb light. The surfaces then release the light energy into another color, slowly, producing the long, glowing effect. Not only do these luminous stars help children and adults alike fall asleep, but they can also be a great learning tool.

Some kits have molded plastic stars that must be individually applied with the putty that is included. Others are made from paper and are more like decals, which are easier and faster to stick on walls and ceilings.

It is nice to have extra pieces for redecorating, but do not buy more stars than you need, especially for smaller rooms. They are rather limited in their use, though they can be used for arts and crafts.

To get the stars to glow, they only need to be exposed to light for a short amount of time. How long this period is will depend on the particular kit you purchase, and the timing (usually from five to 15 minutes) should be in the product description.

The Glow In The Dark Star Buying Guide

  • If you are concerned about protecting your walls, you may want to opt for molded stars. The stick-on versions may be harder to remove, and they could damage surfaces.
  • Always clean and dry the surfaces you plan to decorate before placing the stars. They also adhere better to flat surfaces. This is especially true of the molded variety.
  • If the stars are stuck on and you’d like to move them, try using a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen them up before removing.
  • To get stars to glow, you can turn on all the lights in the room for a few minutes, or try shining a flashlight on the decal you’d like to illuminate.
