A new project idea

I have recently been enamored with electroluminescent materials. The way they glow and the diversity of their application is really interesting to me. Recently, I read about electroluminescent paint. That’s right, electroluminescent paint, as in you paint it, hook it up to a power source of some sort, flick a switch and your paint turns “on”. This blew my mind a little bit when I first heard about it, but then it got me thinking; I have a photograph of a record player I want to posterise and then convert into a vector. I could then get a large print made, and then I would paint a trace of the elements of the image in electroluminescent paint. When the lights go out I can turn it on and have a unique piece that lights up un the dark! Tron meets photography meets print. Brilliant. Pun intended.
