uh oh.... maybe I return them then for a set of normal ones, haha.
I've never had a reveal bulb last more than a week. I think they can't handle the enclosed heat.
I kinda figured the highlighter would be a bunk idea, maybe I will order some UV from MT if they do good on their short dye pack and leaked surf.
I was just at Home Depot to get the 60w and an a15 black light bulb in that power is non existent. I did get 60w GE Reveal bulbs that seem to cast a much whiter light so that may sharpen the tux up a bit! I agree with Keith, an incandescant black light is useless and not uniform in output at all. Fluorescent or CFL is a real black light with uniform color and output, have not experienced LED versions but guess they might be on point too.
MAN, that is a sweet swag lamp Keith! I would like to just have one period! The UV string would be insane in a dark room!
I had one of these back in the day with an incandescent "blacklight" bulb, would love to have one now with UV reactive "string" and a compact florescent blacklight bulb!
an incandescent "blacklight" bulb doesn't give a good effect, but it would provide heat, although maybe not enough. A florescent bulb in the base would not work out because of space and it would not provide enough directed heat to the globe.
OoOo, very cool Keith! I had seen that lunar grande blob he captured, very cool. I think an outside UV route is the way to go with the 32 as I am not seeing an a15 bulb ever being made in black light, plus I have a huge ballast black light that needs to be used!
MT makes a UV dye for the wax, check DR Whats pics. He uses a reptile heat lamp with an UV florescent from the outside.
I will get a shot of the cap tonight. Oh, I may swing by the lgiht bulb nerd shop here and see if they have a 40-60w a15 blacklight bulb! THAT would be cool to run it under UV, anyone have success in adding highlighter ink to wax to make it pop? I think highlighters are water based so I bet it only dances with the water...
