I have a paper mache snowman Christmas ornament that I painted with this product nearly 10 years ago (when the brand on the bottle was DecoArt). In 2020, it still glows bright enough to illuminate the detailing that was done with regular acrylic paints. What I used was glow-in-the-dark MEDIUM, not paint. Excellent product!
