I am trying to find a supplier of good quality UV paints. Not the ones that are invisible under daylight but rather the ones that you can see the color in the daylight and fluorese under blacklight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I agree that WildFire and DayGlo are two great paints. Though I haven't used DayGlo - many pro haunts use it and it's a bit cheaper than WildFire. I use WildFire because it was the first professional paint I ran across and loved it. It does have some drawbacks: One, it's very thick and so must be thinned about 50 percent for airbrush work. The other is that it's so good at fluorescing that it can emit too much light and make your haunt seem too brightly lit. heh. So, you could use less powerful blacklights if you wish ;) I get my supply at blacklight.com. Usually by the gallon but also by the quarts and pints. Remember, you can buy primary colors and mix your own orange, green and so forth. I go ahead and buy them pre-made but you can save a bit of money that way. : http://www.blacklight.com/cat?openview&RestrictToCategory=Blacklight+Fluorescent+Paint+-+1+Quart

I have used Createx fluorescent paint and hated it. Barely fluoresced at all.

Here's a video where I discuss how I use the WildFire paint: Also, check out the written tutorial for additional recipes for new colors: http://www.halloweenforum.com/blogs/terra/1254-improved-painting-3d-haunt-panels-tutorial.html

I used boyh wildfire and cheap fluorescent paint that came in a squeeze tube and couldn't tell between the two when using the same color. Wildfire has some trick colors that change color and a couple that were clear until under the blacklight

Michaels carries a line of fluorescent air brush paints that are very good budget paints. They work great in an airbrush but spread nicely with a brush as well. The colors are really vibrant under regular light and glow nicely under blacklight. Wide range of colors, too.
