Does normal string react to black light?

at least the white ones do, anyone knows if fading yellows and fading pinks also react to it?           DeluDe on www.divinemusictribe.com

fluorescent tones do as well as the lighter yellow, blues and greens. best way is to check yourself. wools pretty cheap in India so we buy it anyway.

some string does react and most don't. you can buy a handheld blacklight for $10 to take with you and check before you buy.

but if you're doing string art and want a bunch of different colors the cheapest way of doing it is to spraypaint the string after its up. fades are easier too.

Hmmm Ive never seen anyone do it like this... How do you keep the spraypaint off your backdrop if you already have the string up? How do you keep from wasting lots of spraypaint that misses the actual string? How do you get all sides of the string painted?

Most hardware stores in my area have blacklight responsive string in yellow and red. This is usually sold as "neon" string, usually for safety marking purposes (if you say 'blacklight' or 'fluorescent' the hardware store people wont know what you are talking about).

A lot of regular white string glows blue. Just test it out yourself and see if it glows!

@Psycosmo~

You have to spray the sting twice, once in front and once on the back usually. But it just takes a light coat and it's done. Take a piece of cardboard and put it directly behind the string as your painting to control the overspray. Overspray does get on the structure a bit though, so that might be a problem for some.

Hardware stores do sell neon string around here, and thats what we used on our first structures, but the color choices are limited and the prices add up very quickly when you have to buy 30+ rolls at $3/4 each. White string is cheap, and you just need one can of paint for every color you want to use. I'd rather use neon string myself though, especially for smaller strucures, but this has been working for us.

Here's a structure we did last year using spraypaint:

Looks nice, but still with this tek you cant have the wooden frame that the strings are attatched to be black and thus invisible. Came out great though, mad props! Those things are huge!!! And good point, for stuff as big as what you are doing the neon string would add up in cost pretty quickly.
