While he was away delivering a conference I created a star field on his bedroom ceiling.
This is a luminous, glow in the dark ceiling.
I painted clouds above the bed head and a cosmos of stars and galaxies flowing into the ceiling. I paint in the dark, it’s a skill I have been developing for many years. The paints I work with are rare-earth alkaline metals and typically glow up to 8 hours with the aqua colour visible up to 12 hours. The green colour even longer.
He gave me a call when he arrived back at the station and see he was on his way so I had about 40 minutes to finish and tidy up.,… He’s on his way!… ho no!… As I quickly started to put things back to exactly the way they were before he left.
It can be tricky to surprise him but this time he knew nothing about my little surprise. And until the lights go out he wouldn’t know at all. You see it’s totally invisible in normal day light or with the lights on. When the lights go out – now that is when the magic really happens!
Even so, you should have seen his face! It was a picture!! The door was open a little bit so I could just see his grin. He just said, “Wow!…….. That’s amazing!… Wow !… I love you! This is such an amazing surprise.” We laid hugging underneath the stars in the comfort of home.
Because its easy to extend and add to, there will soon be the addition of ceiling. A precise scale rendition of the Andromeda galaxy but that is another story.
