I bought Rustoleum Glow in the dark paint (spray) to paint large stepping stone type pavers to create an illuminated walkway at night. I live in the Everglades and it is very dark and spooky at night. It is not working to absorb the sun as stated . Did I miss a step ? was I supposed to prime them in some way first ?

    When it dried, did you coat it with a sealent so that it would survive the wear and tear?

      No, I did not do anything yet. I sprayed the stepping stones. You can barely tell that they have been sprayed. If I had not see the paint come out of the nozzle, I would not even know there was something on them.I only tested two large stones and waited 24 hoursrs for the paint to absorb the sun.There is no glow at all.Maybe I wasn't supposed to use the spray type. I did not want to seal them if the paint does not show up. I wasn't told to prep the stones in any way. I did however ,wipe them off of any loose debris.

    It didn't work for me either and I have sprayed them several times! Full sun too!

    GO to Walmart & look in the CRAFTS section. Get some Paint-On glow in the dark paint. It comes in bottles or paint cans. Prop them up on some tin cans for height. With a brush, paint the top & sides of each one. Let dry overnight as is. Get a can of CLEAR spray paint THAT's made for concrete. It will act as a sealer for them. Once dried, spray an even coat over the top & sides. Let dry overnight right side up. Once dried, turn them over & spray the underside. Let it dry completely too. Place in your yard & watch the difference. GOOD LUCK! :)
