Posted:There's alot of mention of UV lights, however, those suckers are expensive a the only place I've been able to fond them, Edmond Scientific. Where do you guys get yours, or do you just use the regular hardwqare store "black lights" the thing that made me think of this was the ne body paint Malcom sells. Any ideas?-PSM

Posted:Hi Psm,We use the standard black lights you buy from the hardware store. (Although we have found a lighting supplier that does them cheaper) We normally pay about $32 AUD ($15 US) for the tube and about that much again for the baton you need to hold the tube. Intially we were a little worried about installing them in our homes due to the Skin Cancer thing, but after researching a few scientific journals my Girlfriend found that the UV light which comes out of the Fluroescent tubes is not the same type as that which gives you skin cancer. So now we can happily UV twirl in our living room at night... I personally think UV twirling is better than Fire twirling, because of the sooty deposits Fire twirling equip leave everywhere :) Cant wait to make me some UV flags!Happy Poiing,Josh

Here in the US you can buy both the black lights and the black light body paint at Spencers Novelty Stores in the mall. It's where we get all our fun stuff. It's not expensive at all ($10 black light, $6 paint set). You can also get the UV lights from pet stores since they are used for some reptiles and at plant shops because they are sold for indoor greenhouses (which I have both), though they are more pricey than the black lights.Hope this helps.------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...
