We use a high temperature water based paint that is permanent and safe. It will NEVER melt, burn, fade, peel, drip, crack, bubble, smoke, smell, off-gas, or catch fire, EVER! When our hand painted Mood-Light Bulbs eventually burn out, they make fantastic ornaments, suncatchers, hummingbird feeders, watering globes, etc.
3-5 years is the average life with 8 hrs of daily use. We use the longest lasting light bulbs available on the market today, which are the same long life, low energy light bulbs that we have been painting for 18 years.
Yes, we check each and every light bulb before we ship it to you. Each light bulb is guaranteed for 1 year but they typically last 5-10 years. Our light bulbs feature a heavy-duty commercial grade tungsten filament.
We use long life, low energy 25 watt Light Bulbs. A low wattage Light Bulb works best to cast the colors onto the walls. A brighter light washes out the color. With a low wattage Bulb, it may be used without a shade so that the painting projects around the room, and is the perfect amount of light for mood lighting or a night light.
