Things I've made out of GlowLace material


bracelets

The kids and I made some glow in the dark bracelets by welding bits of clear, glow, and black urethane together. I've worn one ever since, it's amazing how bright it glows with just a little exposure to the sun - or any strong source of UV.

boots

buttons

Unbreakable glow in the dark button attachments

I lose buttons not because the buttons break, but because the thread breaks. This isn't thread, won't break and glows in the dark.

sneakers

Roger and his famous sneakers.

chrome

chrome all - For comparison chrome closeup1 - Zoomed in

Created once by accident in the factory - it was a complete accident with, apparently, the right mixture of clear urethane and a tiny amount of graphite powder. We were never able to reproduce it after trying many times but it really was an odd metallic reflctive silvery chrome looking thing. We only had a couple of inches of it.
