Artwork you can see in the dark

Projects from Family Times magazine

Create some artwork that can still be enjoyed well after the lights are out.

Add some fun to you child’s room with a funky piece of Resene wallpaper mounted on a glow-in-the-dark frame. This is a really easy project, and one that little hands can help with!

Paint  an glow in the dark photo frame.



  1. Take the backing and glass out of the picture frame so you’re painting the wood only.

  2. Paint on a base coat. I used Resene Black White. Allow to dry.

  3. Paint 3 layers of Resene FX Nightlight, allowing to dry after each layer.

  4. Cut the wallpaper to size. You can easily measure the correct size by using the backing from the frame

  5. Assemble

  6. Turn the lights out and enjoy your glow-in-the-dark artwork.
