    hey guys

    I have been using the standard 3M reflective tape for my OT stunt saber blades and i was wondering if there is a reflective paint that reflects and works the same way?

    do they make such a paint?

    I'm not sure if there is reflective paint or not, I'm sure there is.
    However, my dad used to paint speed bumps on roads and he would mix sand into the paint he used that caused it to reflect at night. Hope that helps a little.

    Don't try the available reflective spray paints. I didn't get good results.

    However there is reflective paint out there. Check out the glow in the dark car in Repo Man. This was a practical on-set effect. It did cost $600 can however!

    What about retro reflective tape? It reflects light back to the light source
