FAQ – Materials & Process


Q: Do you use those glow in the dark stickers, or plastic stars that they sell in the dollar store?

A: No!  Your Cosmic Gateway is a unique, custom-painted masterpiece that adds luxury and value to your property.

Q: I’ve seen glow-in-the-dark paint in stores. Is that what you use?

A: No! I use a non-toxic, professional-grade, water-based, acrylic paint. It is engineered with phosphorescent pigments and rare earth minerals for glow duration and colour. My exclusive paint is not sold in stores. With each Cosmic Gateway, you are getting super-glowing paint, along with my artistry and expertise.

Q: How long will the stars glow?

A: The long-lasting paint glows all night will be brightest in the first few hours. This paint glows at least 10 times longer and brighter than mass-produced, retail paints and lasts for decades.

Cosmic Gateway’s first type of paint, CG-3, is a moon-glow yellow paint that glows for up to an hour and is brightest in the first 15 minutes. It slowly fades as the stargazer falls asleep. Great for children’s rooms. As the stars dim, their little peepers drift closed so they can get some sleep. The CG-10 paint glows with a glacier blue shine all night. It is brightest in the first couple of hours.

Specialty colours (cosmic orange, celestial blue) are available. Their glowing times vary by pigment, and typically fall between the CG-3 and CG-10 range.

Q: Will there be a mess?

A: No, I use a proprietary, mess-free method to paint the stars.

*

Q: Do I need to remove or cover all of my furniture?

A: If I can move a stepladder around, then we should be good to go! My painting process is not messy, so there is no need to remove your furniture, and no special room preparation is necessary. Please temporarily remove valuables and breakables from the room before the job.

*

Q: What happens with ceiling fans and lights?

A: No need to remove anything. The lights and ceiling fans will not be noticed in front of the stars in your darkened room.

*

Q: How do you create the Cosmic Gateway, and can we watch?

A: I respectfully ask that you don’t watch. I am licensed to use a proprietary method to create each Cosmic Gateway, and I am obligated under contract to protect trade secrets. I appreciate your understanding.
