Glow in the dark powder is such a fun colorant to use in your projects! Whether you use it in wax or soap, the possibilities are endless. One of the best ways to use glow powder is to make glow in the dark wax melts. This project is fun because our glow in the dark powder is pigmented, meaning that your wax will be colorful and also glow at night!

Glow in the dark powder is available in 14 different colors, so there are tons to choose from. You can also make your own custom shades by mixing different colors together.
When making wax melts with glow in the dark powder, there are a few things to keep in mind. Most importantly, because the glow powder is dense, it tends to sink to the bottom of your wax. This means the wax at the bottom of your mold will glow much more brightly than the wax at the top.
It also helps to keep in mind that you will need a fair amount of glow powder to get a bright pigmentation in your wax as well as a bright glow. For a batch of 10 standard clamshell containers, we recommend using a full 3g jar of glow powder. You can of course experiment with different amounts of color to get your desired shade.
All of our glow in the dark powders will create a beautiful color and glow. However, it helps to understand that some colors will glow more brightly than others because of the physics of light. You may find that some colors can be charged and will glow brightly with just a short burst of incandescent light, while others will glow better after being charged with an ultraviolet light source (like sunlight).
