Are Glow In The Dark Driveways Real?
First things first, yes! Glow in the dark driveways are a real thing.
Glow in the dark driveways can make your driveway look awesome. They are super easy to make, and very cheap to do.
Artist from all over the world have been implementing Glow Stones into their own art projects and into civic commissions.
How To Make A Glow In The Dark Driveway?
There are two ways you can do this:
When you are laying down your concrete, you will need to get your glow stones and place them into the surface of the wet concrete. To avoid bumps and an uneven surface, make sure you push the glow stones into the concrete.
To make your life a lot easier, you may want to pour the concrete in stages especially if you have a large plot of land you are trying to cover with your glow stones. This means you wont have to step on wet concrete to get to all the parts of your driveway.
Let the concrete sit and harden with the stones in place and you now have a glow in the dark driveway.
Keep in mind, this method is permanent so once you apply put the glow stones into the concrete you will not be able to remove them.
You can also create that awesome glow with some glow in the dark concrete. All you need to do is get the dry power and sprinkle it on top of the wet concrete surface.
Once you apply this powder and the concrete dries, you have a glow in the dark driveway.
But what happens if your driveway has already been built and you want to give it that glow in the dark look. Well, here is what you do: paint the surface of your driveway with some Clear Paint and then sprinkle the glow in the dark mortar on top of the paint. This should mix together nicely and create a nice glow during the night.
This is the most temporary but easiest way to make your driveway glow in the dark.
If you are throwing a party, or just want to see how cool a glow in the dark paint job can get, all you need is some glow in the dark paint. This type of paint is only temporary and non toxic so once you are finished with it and wash it away, it does not effect the environment in a negative way.
This stuff is just as easy as painting a picture. All you need is a paint brush, the paint and your ready to go.
