October 17th — In-stock paint can ship immediately, however backorders may be delayed for weeks to months. We can't say definitively which colors (if any) will be affected until the factory is given an order (which will also secure your place in line, and can be modified after placing).
Rosco is happy to report supply chain issues are beginning to subside, and that matches increased paint shipments that Musson has been seeing. Backorders are still possible (especially for quarts), however the raw pigments/materials are available in greater quantities.
Available in 9 brighter than normal colors which "glow" vividly under ultraviolet lights, Rosco Fluorescent Paints can create a wide range of exciting effects. They can be used to create special effects using ultraviolet black light or combined with other Rosco Scenic Paints to make the colors more vibrant. Fluorescents use the same high quality, water-base, vinyl acrylic binder found in Off Broadway Paints. It is suitable for use on most surfaces after the surface has been properly prepped.
CoverageApproximately 300 feet² per gallon, depending on substrate, application tool and film thickness
Binder TypeVinyl Acrylic
DilutionFluorescent Paints should be used straight out of the can. They can be diluted with water if necessary, however this will reduce the hiding power of the paint and may reduce the brightness of the "glow."
Surface PreparationSurfaces should be clean, dry and free from dirt and grease. Prime porous surfaces, except fabrics, using Rosco Tough Prime. If painting a new plaster surface, prime wall with a commercial primer/sealer designed for raw plaster. Then use Rosco Tough Prime as a final preparation. Use a white base coat to achieve the most dramatic color effects.
ApplicationStir contents well before use. Apply by brush, roller, or spray gun. Apply in thin uniform coats, using a good quality brush or roller. Use overlapping strokes, keeping a wet edge.

NOTESFluorescent pigments will degrade from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. Avoid direct sunlight where possible. Invisible Blue is a milky white paint that fluoresces to a pale blue under blacklight. When painted over light colored surfaces, Invisible Blue is difficult to detect. However, it can be seen when painted over dark or black colors.
CAUTIONSDo not apply when surface or air temperatures are below 50°F (10°C). Keep from freezing. Avoid prolonged contact with skin or breathing of spray. Do not take internally. Use adequate ventilation. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
