Frequently Purchased Together
Under normal light, the Atomic Glow coloring turns the water a cool greenish-yellow color. But Atomic Glow gets its name from the color that appears when you flip on the black light. When Atomic Glow coloring is exposed to black light, the material actually glows an eerie green color that looks… well… atomic, as the kids say.
Atomic Glow coloring requires a black light to produce the eerie, greenish-yellow color seen in the picture or on Steve’s online videos. That’s why we include a mini LED black light along with your bottle of Atomic Glow. Worried about how far you can stretch 4 oz. (120 mL) of Atomic Glow concentrate? Don’t be. With just one teaspoon of Atomic Glow added to a quart of water, you’ll have all the glow you need. That means you can make 24 individual quarts (6 gallons or nearly 23 liters) of glowing liquid!
Unlike our Glow Powder or other “glow-in-the-dark” substances, Atomic Glow reacts to the energy in black light. Add just a few drops of Atomic Glow to almost any of your favorite experiments and you are ready for a the perfect Halloween Science lesson… but you don’t have to wait for Halloween, Atomic Glow will “brighten up” your science classroom any time of year! You can purchase more Mini Black Lights on our site, or our large black light. Please note: Atomic Glow will stain. Recommended for children ages 6 and up.

What Does It Teach?
This special coloring agent fluoresces under black light. When the energy from the black light “excites” the fluorescent dye, you end up with a brightly glowing, very exciting, addition to any (water-soluble) experiment! (For the full glowing effect, you will need to purchase a large black light.)
