  • Help required to demonstrate items

    We have some items that are Glow-In-The-Dark hanging mobiles. We went to a local craft fair on Saturday, and lots of people liked the product, but only when we could show them that it glowed in the dark ( obviously). However, as you are all probably aware, the halls where these shows are held in are extremely well lit, which is great for everyone except us. So I was wondering whether any of you clever people out there had any ideas where we could, cheaply, show people what they looked like in the dark, without having to get them to stare into a black box.
    Preferably, something that catches their eye as they walk past, so that they aren't confronted by some over weight, ugly git accosting them with the line " please look into my black box". Our best idea is to produce a wooden box, the interior of which is painted black, into which we place our glowing shapes. Then drape a very fine black material, like organza, over the front to allow people to see in, but not let in the light.
    Any better suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance

    could you do somthing like a light box used in photography but in black at eye level ???

    people would be curious enough to look in, I know I would be

    if you made some eyecatching poster for the front it might encourage viewers as well

      I agree, a dark box, prettied up on the outside would be good. Maybe a sign along the lines of " what does your baby see in the dark?" or preferably something a little more catchy!

            shoot !!

            sorry I didn't read it properly, been a longgggggg weekend ....how about doing a recording with audio of it and putting it on dvd , showing how long it needs to charge in the light , how bright it is in the dark etc then put it on a loop on a portable dvd player or laptop on your table.
            if you drape fabric round the player/lappy and just show the screen it is more eyecatching
            make the dvd into a loop so it is continually playing to the passing public

            i'm full of ideas and not all of them bright,lol

              Firstly a quick response to Peter. I am only trying to get some help and am not "advertising" or anything even vaguely controversial, and whatever you may think of me, I was hoping that this forum was inclusive and could except all different kinds of crafts, not just the accepted ones.
              However, I digress. Thanks for the help that has been posted, so thought I'd let you know that, using your ideas, we are going to make a light box, only it will be dark ( if you see what I mean). Instead of the opaque glass top, we are going to put on a sheet of glass/perspex, with a sheet of that tinted film to make it dark but see still see through, and have it as a desk top display. Thanks for all your help

                Hello there,

                Couldnt you build a black tent type wig wam instead of having a table? Just thought this would bring attention to your store, curiosity and all that, you could make it look really effective inside. On the outside you could really draw custom towards you,be really imaginative, make it look really appealing so the customer has to walk into the tent!



                Good luck with everything
