40ml tubes of all seven colors from our neon collection at a special price.
Our neon paints are fluorescent and will glow when exposed to a UV-Blacklight. These same pigments make the colors bright neon under normal lighting conditions.
The pigments used in making fluorescent paints have their own unique qualities. The paints will seem grainy and have a tendency to separate from the oil. Painting overly thick layers will result in a powdery texture that will take a long time to dry and may crack if touched.
As with all Gapka paints, we believe the only ingredients should be pigment and oil. We leave the addition of mediums to manipulate the paint to you, the artist.
Fluorescent colors are not colorfast by their nature. Humidity, temperature, and light exposure will affect the duration of the fluorescent properties and brightness of the paint in daylight. All our neon colors are considered transparent.
I love the smooth consistency of the paints. The color's are super vibrant. They are definitely worth it
Love these colours, they are super neon and transparent so you can use them on top of other colours as well to add a juicy bright effect! Works brilliant on top of lighter colours.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these , absolutely gorgeous
I know it was mentioned, but it's too thin for me. I can not use it to mix with other paint colours as it feels as though I am painting with water colours. It's also hard to create opaque layers which is really what oil paint is about. When I hold the tube upside down the oil comes dripping out, just to let others know what it is really like. The amount of money I paid for it wasn't worth it in my opinion. Regardless, the colours are really nice and vibrant.
Hi, We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We try really hard to explain that the neon pigments create oil paints that are very different in texture from traditional pigments. If you check out our Instagram you can see many examples of how artists have effectively used these paints in their artworks.
Nice but still needs work
The pigmentation of the colours is very good across the range, but sadly the quality is inhibited by the sheer amount of oil in each tube. I was hoping the problem would resolve itself as I used more, but no. The viscosity is inconsistent throughout the tube. I look forward to Gapka improving this aspect of the product.
Hi Cory! Due to the nature of the neon pigments there is a tendency towards more natural separation of pigment and oil than is found in "traditional" oil paint colors. This is why we sell the neons in smaller 40ml tubes only and larger quantities in cans. This makes remixing the paint and oil easier and maintains a more even consistency throughout use. Our paintmaker Pablo, is always looking for ways to improve. Thank you for your review!
