Over the years my StarMurals have made quantum
leaps in the scientific sense. I made it my mission to study,
research, experiment, learn and apply the highest degree of
science and innovation to my materials, tools, techniques
The results have been nothing
short of stunning. I am the only artist in the world today
who has achieved complete daytime invisibility in my art.
I am the only artist in the world that can guarantee that
my murals glow in the dark all night long…up to
25 hours. I am the only artist in the world that can
offer glow in the dark murals that will energize in the shortest
period of time and perform well using nearly any light source…sunlight,
fluorescent, incandescent, even 12V.
Throughout the five-year development
of StarMurals, my work has been made up of equal parts…science
project and astronomical art…and I’ve enjoyed
both. I’ve researched and experimented with over
100 brands of phosphorescent materials, from over 50 manufacturers
and distributors, worldwide…in a variety of micron
particle sizes. I researched and experimented with dozens
of artist mediums, in gels, gessoes and pigmented paints…in
a variety of textures, finishes and other properties. Iíve
experimented with and tested special binders and engineered
formulae, from around the world.
The end result is a 100% proprietary formula that is truly unique
and world-class. I only use raw materials from 2 suppliers,
one for phosphorescent pigments and one for “mediums”.
Both of these companies are the world leaders in their fields
and each batch of material they produce comes with certified
lab test results, material safety data sheets and world-class
quality and continuity.
Each StarMurals project is unique and requires the custom
formulation of all materials, for each project. The custom
formulation is never seen by the client but typically takes
2 hours or more to create. I never recycle my “paints”,
I make just enough for that one job…ensuring a mysterious
and magical result.
My process of formulation is top
secret and involves many objective and subjective factors, including
viscosity, density, pigment loading, specific gravity, color,
sheen, elasticity and more. The end result is a highly durable,
long lasting, fully invisible product that glows brightly, night
after night, for 20 years or more. Built into all my “paints”
is a special UV inhibitor that protects the finish from yellowing
and other damage from sunlight. Also featured is a finish that
once it has “set-up”, is even washable. You can
even put a coat of paint over your StarMural and it will still
glow brightly... night after night.
All of my finished materials are non-toxic, non-radioactive
and 100% safe, in all environments. In case you are wondering,
NO, I do not sell, license or otherwise distribute my formulae
or finished products…they are 100% proprietary…for
my use and the enjoyment of my clients only, so, please don’t
