If you enjoy my designs, then perhaps, like me, you love creating distinctive and unusual pieces to wear.

Today’s project combines a beautiful fanciful design with an unexpected element: It glows in the dark!

My first thought was to make these into necklace pendants, but then I walked into a dark room and saw them glowing on the table and thought they’d be so cute:

  • Tucked here and there in a fairy garden
  • Placed in pretty bowls about the house
  • Positioned on a night table for a soft comforting glow (for a child, or anyone who needs a little gentle light in the night)

This is the chart provided by PolyClayPlay on their glow powders:

Color: Brightness: Endurance: Particle Size:
Green 10 14+ Hour Dust
Aqua 9 12+ Hour Fine
Blue 7 8+ Hour Fine
Purple 5 6+ Hour Fine

 

In my pieces I didn’t find that even the green glowed much longer than an hour. However, I did NOT carefully measure my powders or my clay. So it’s likely that if you add them in the correct ratios, you’ll get better results.

I’ll have to try doing that sometime, lol.

Let me know what ways you can think for making use of these sweet little glow pebbles. I just love having them around, they’re pretty and fascinating to look at.

These would also be fun to try lighting up from the inside with LED lights. That may be a topic for an upcoming Friday Findings video.

Here’s the article I mentioned by Ginger Davis Allman on conditioning Pardo Translucent clay.

  1. First thing I thought of is using them for Halloween decorations–though with a string of 100-degree days, it’s kind of hard to believe that October is out there anywhere. :O

    • Oooo, I can definitely see these as Halloween decorations! Is it hotter where you are now than where you moved from?
