This wouldn`t normally interest me but after 3-4 weeks over Christmas not really doing anything other than general maintainance on my machines, I wanted something quick and easy and saw Ralph on the forums making these. So I thought I`d have a go….

The compound is strontium aluminate and glows in the dark. It can be purchased on ebay for very little money. I got 10g for £3.60

The tube for the powder came from the clean end of a pen! Infact, I took it from a cheap gel pen and there was at least 30mm + free clean ends on some of them!!
