I've coloured a couple of moons of different sizes, and one astronaut using watercolour pencils, then over-painted the 'lit' half of each image with glow in the dark paint and cut out. When the decorating is done, they'll be stuck to the ceiling along with some glow in the dark star stickers and maybe a flying saucer or two :-) For now though, they're attached to his headboard (much to his delight). Sadly all attempts to photograph them glowing in the dark have failed - the paint just isn't bright enough to show up on any of our cameras. Here are some piccies of them in daylight anyway.

I hope you like them.
What I used:
Images: Dr Digi's House of Stamps digital stamps Moon and Cosmo Nut
Tools: Papermania watercolour pencils, Decoart Glow in the Dark paint
- I painted each image with 3-4 coats of glow in the dark paint on the 'lit' side and one coat on the 'dark' side. Applying the paint in a splodgy way on the moons gives a more interesting and realistic finish.
