It is my personal practice to never add colorants glow powder or any of that stuff to plastic before it is heated . Glow powder in dark colors is more or less a waste of time as well . If you add to much you will change the colors of your bait and they will look milky . Hope that is of some use in your endeavorers .

Glows do ok in transparent baits, and the BEST in clear plastic...no colorant. The best way to charge them is the sun, the second best is a camera flash unit. Dark or opaque plastics can be gotten to glow but you'll need to add a lot of the pigment and even then you won't get a super good glow.

The tails on these baits were done using clear plastic and adding only the Do-It glow powder the exception being the whitish tail which s glow purple. The Do-It powders have some tinting to them so you know what you have. That green glow will stay charged up for hours.
