Since discovering the power of the UV light for my creations, I have loved it.
About this creation
Ok, here is the Fire Car LegoŽ set no.7241. I have changed it a bit, but let's go on to the UV lighting. Here we see the car with a few green light pieces on it. But turn the UV light on and you get...

Glowing pieces!

Here is the most brightest piece I have. It does glow well.

Here is the orange postbox pieces that I have. It too does glow well, because it's orange. Green and orange pieces always light up well with UV light.

Out of complete realism here, I am seen holding a lightsaber rod and a fire piece. They also glow well.

However, if you use any of the brand new orange or green pieces, they don't light up so well under UV light. Anyway, if you take a green circle 1x1 stud and place it on a bike, you get a fantastic light for night-riding.

Here is my UV light. It is 17 inches and 44CM long. Which makes it quite big.

Here we have all of my glowing pieces. I have quite a lot. Try and count how many pieces are there!

Mister Bones was the very person that inspired me to use UV lighting for my creations. I have also had one for about half a year. All that time wasted eh? Well, at least i'm using it now.

MY EYES! XD This is a neat tip M. Could you do one on what pieces do glow? Like red, blue, yellow, etc...

Warrior, read my comment, I spelled out what works with UV light. The red, blue, green and yellow trans pieces do not glow.

For those who were teenagers in the 70's they were called black lights that you used with the florecsent poster. You can still get both of them at Spencers in most malls.

Hey! Very nice tutorial here! I like how you showed that the light can make pieces glow without the MOC being dark. I generally use mine for spooky effects, so it is supposed to be dark, but this will let folks know they can do it both ways. The light you use is good for that. The one I use is a security document check light, so it is more focused which gives the blue effect you see in my stuff. By the way for all reading this, the new orange pieces do not glow, only the neon orange, neon green and those yellow starfish. Some stickers glow as well. ANyway, well done Sir, well done.

Quoting Leda Kat Sweet! I've always wondered what those lights actually look like. One day I might get one and have some fun with my glowing pieces too!!! You've really mastered the effect, the pieces glow without distorting the colour of the rest of the pieces. Nice tutorial.
The soomer the better, actually. See if you can find one on eBay. If you use it anyway. It is a fantastic tool for Lego as it makes the pieces light up, as seen here.
