There are a few different art forms that might come to mind when you hear the phrase "light writing." First, there's the old classic: putting a manual camera on a tripod, leaving the shutter open, and writing words or fun symbols in the air with a flashlight or sparkler.
Of course here at Crazy Aaron's®, we have our own form of light writing! Using our Phantom Thinking Putty® and a Glow Charger® you can create temporary messages that only appear in the dark. The steps are easy and the supplies even easier thanks to our all-in-one packaging for the Phantoms that includes your very own UV light Glow Charger.

Step 1: Roll your Thinking Putty into a ball and press it onto a smooth, flat surface to form a “writing pad.” This can be any shape you desire, but we kept things simple for this introductory post.
Note: It is especially fun to create seasonal shapes like ghosts for Halloween or Christmas trees around the holidays.
Step 2: Grab your Glow Charger and draw with the emitting light directly on the putty or write a fun message for someone to see.
Step 3: Quickly turn off the lights and watch your image appear. If the glow is fading to quickly, rewrite or draw your image directly over your original drawing.
