Your Questions, Answered


What kind of light will activate Glowscape?

Purple light pens will create the strongest glow, but you can also use a regular white light for a moderate glow effect.

How long does the glow last?

The glow fades on its own, and after a few minutes in a moderately lit room the glow will seem to disappear. In a pitch black room, the glow will totally disappear over 4-6 hours. 

How do I set up Glowscape?

Included in the Glowscape kit are sticky dots that may help when hanging Glowscape on a roughly textured wall. We also offer an aluminum frame option. See a full unboxing of the Glowscape kit here.

How much ambient light can I have near my Glowscape?

Glowscape is bright enough to be used during the day, but for best performance we recommend keeping your Glowscape in a dark or dimly lit room. Since Glowscape absorbs light, in a bright room it will be more difficult to see the glow effect.

Is Glowscape radioactive?

Glowscape is not radioactive! It is luminescent, meaning is only glows when charged by a light source. The glowing ingredient in the plastic is strontium aluminate, which is non-toxic and inert.
