DIY Invisible Glow-in-the-Dark Wall Paint

A Sad 4-Year-Old Jumped With Joy When He Saw This Glow-in-the-Dark Mural For the First Time

At 4 years old, Ben's family was moving and he was scared to sleep alone for the first time in his own bedroom, but his mum's friend, Twitter user crisp22, decided to give Ben the surprise of a lifetime. "Ben has been sharing a bedroom and he DID NOT want to sleep alone. He was pitching a lot of fits about having his own bedroom," she wrote on Twitter, explaining that Ben hates the new house and his new room and, like many 4-year-olds, has been throwing major tantrums.

The freelance artist and friend of Ben's mother posted the photos above and shared her heartwarming story. Using invisible, glow-in-the-dark paint, she was able to transform Ben's new bedroom walls into an insanely mesmerizing starry scene. Crispin used different shades of water-based acrylic glow paint and sponges to illuminate the stencils on Ben's wall. The best part about this is how surprised he was when he saw the jaw-dropping art. Because the paint was invisible in the daylight, he did not see the artwork until bedtime.

"Parents tell Ben goodnight, hit the lights. Ben screams for two seconds then there is this huge comical pause, and an excited 'WHATS THAT?!'" she wrote on Twitter. "Followed by two minutes of Ben jumping on the bed, turning the lights on and off, and his siblings super jealous. Victory!"
