    I've been working on some different themed knife/zipper lanyards that I sell. So far I have my demon hunter with firefighter paracord and some black accent and 3 skulls. Another one that a customer wanted in OD green and black. Next I started playing with some glow in the dark powder and I came up with a zombie edition with green glowing eyes. Next up is some red glow in the dark for a vampire themed lanyard. It's not as bright as the green powder, nor does it hold a charge as long but it looks pretty cool. I'll have to take better pics of the skulls (cell phone pics) with my real camera. Enjoy!

    The skulls are cool. How did you get the eyes glowing with the powder ?

    Thanks! for the skulls I used a clear epoxy called devcon home 2 ton epoxy. It has a 30 minute set time to work with. I used a toothpick and carefully added it to the eyes. The red was so disappointing though. I wouldn't use it again.

    And you mixed the powder with the epoxy?

    Yup. I didn't have an exact ratio of powder to epoxy. I just added it, then checked the glow until I got what I wanted.
