long lasting glow in the dark paint


Hi I know that this question was asked but there were no good answers so I will try to ask. I need a long lasting white glow in the dark paint for a Cross on a steeple at my church. It is to tall to have a light installed. the steeple lights up but you can't see the Cross. I have found some that claim to last up to 8 hrs and up to 6 years of life but not in white, also who knows if these claims are true Thanks in advance TJSXOX

I don't know if you will find paint that glows white at night, usually white colors glow green at night

if there is a light but the cross is not illuminated well, I would suggest either a spot light specifically for the cross or maybe a reflective coating such as used on highway road signs or lane markers in conjunction with the lighting already in place.

You can also install lighting directly on the cross as well. Look into EL wire or Light Tape«

holy cow (no pun intended)... $2,500 per GALLON!?! that would be one expensive paint project if its a big cross... I'd find another lighting technique that would cost you WAY less in the future
