I am in no way associated with the seller in the above link, other than a happy customer!! My friend ctuck found a glowby in the Playa dust at nite last year and another friend venusrising tracked down what it was and where to buy it online.

I found them for a better price and no sales tax for me, plus combined shipping from a very personable and reasonably priced seller on Ebay. Just thought I'd pass the link on in case anyone finds these nifty little lite ups as interesting as I do! I haven't seen any locally, at least not in the SF Bay Area, unless I'm just missing them?

I suggested she list her future auctions under Burning Man in addition to the other uses she advertises the Glowbys for and I see she has done so...I'm going to use these in my hair, and maybe even on my bike! I got 18 of them in different colors.

Prismatic Tape (revisited) and Spray Paint!?

I got no responses on where to buy prismatic tape in the SF Bay Area and that all important purchase was eluding me until I found some at Michael's. It comes in small packs and are about $6 for two rolls. In fact the package is confusing with a discrepency in the length of product it contains...the two units of measure given do not equal out to the same...well, we'll see how well it goes. I'll be using it to decorate my bike this weekend.

and about Spray Paint!? I want to glorify some cowboy boots for the Playa, and I was thinking of using some old beat up black ones and painting them metallic bronze. So, two questions there really...can anyone recommend a specific shade of bronze or brand of spray paint? and also any opinions on spray painting footwear? would the color hold up or would it tend to flake off badly? create moop? anyone tried this before?
