What happens when you pour clear goo mixed with glow powder into rotting wood? Well, if a Bulgarian kitty is a around, you get a bright blue cat.
If you’re Mike Warren, the mind behind the Man Crafts column at dollarstorecrafts.com, you can make something beautiful that will literally light up your next dinner party.
Warren decided to utilize the natural grooves in pecky cypress hardwood, and then he got the otherworldly idea to fill them with a glow-in-the-dark concoction of photoluminescent (AKA glow) powder and clear casting resin.
The result? Ethereal, glowing blue pools of cool.
