  • 1.

    Protect your tabletop. Cover your work area with several layers of scrap paper or aluminum foil. Glow Explosion marker ink can bleed through paper and contains colorants that can stain.

  • 2.

    Get the markers ready to use. Open the foil packet to remove the Glow Explosion markers. To activate the markers, remove the caps and press each marker straight down on the foil packet for 2-3 seconds. The markers are ready to use when the tips appear moist and colored.

  • 3.

    Create some abstract art. Place the blotter mat included in the package on the protected work surface. Place a piece of glow paper on top of the blotter with the shiny side (the side with the words) down. Draw some abstract art. Who inspires you? Picasso? Kandinsky? Choose a famous work to portray or come up with your own ideas. Use one or more markers. Recap the markers after each use. Markers work best for bold, broad designs. Don’t worry if the marks appear light, they will glow once they are activated.

    Activate the glow feature. Uncap the Glow Explosion Activator marker. Use the broad side of the marker tip to make side-to-side or back-and-forth strokes to cover the entire design. Recap the marker when you are finished. The glow will start to appear wit

    Admire your art. The best glow effect can be seen in a completely dark room.
