Note on fluorescent technology. The term color is used to describe any segment of the white light spectrum, which comprises the range visible to the un-aided eye. Regular pigments reflect some portion of the visible light and absorbs the rest of the spectrum, releasing it as heat. Our daylight fluorescent pigments take that extra energy and convert to light instead of heat. This creates amazing effects whereby our pigments seem to glow in regular lighting conditions.
