    It works fairly well. I can't get a decent photo of it without my DSLR, but here is what I did:


    Green peeking through

    Blurry shot of O-ring wrapped around. It shines through the optic fairly well. In pitch darkness I can pick up the light by seeing the glow, blast light into my closed palm, and then see to get to the bathroom and back with the light off.
    My biggest light-hog is my camera.

    Ok well here the only photo i got of the light with glow paint on the optic before i removed the paint.

    left is painted one, it made it a flood light and lost throw, and right is control light.

    Im going to post pics shortly of my new work I did right after I took the paint off last week (been kinda lazy).

    If the project is more important than the flashlight, then paint away. I use nail polish and just dust the top with the GID paint until it's covered. You want to get it as close as possible to the LED.
