From the limited experience with glow powder, the green is always the strongest, while other colors vary. 

I am wondering would it be beneficial to use green GITD powder under the colored trans scales, since the color of those scales are pretty prominent and even the green powder has a tint of green under normal lighting, but they are mostly white under normal room light.  Just curious how the green glow would look under different trans color scales...  :think:

Yeah, more experimentation would be good to confirm, but my powder didn’t work with the red in a quick test. Zero visible response.

Started the fill on the dark blue scales and also did a tweezer tip as well as a FireFly tip. Bored anchor holes in the plastic tips so the epoxy/glow overlay should stick.

Glows fine in the darker blue scales. Happy with the results so far. Glad I practiced on older scales first. I did a bit better on this set.

Hello.  This looks great.  What color gitd powder did you use to achieve those results?

It’s called ‘aqua blue’ and is the same powder I used in the tweezer head in post #61 above from glowmania.

I’d try the finer sized powders next, but I’m not running out anytime soon. Coarse grain works fine for inside the scales.
