I have not and maybe I am missing something but doesn't that paint need light to show off the movement aspects?? Maybe something that needs to be tried if someone has that paint.

Yes it does but some of the acrylic blanks are pretty translucent, not sure if they would get enough light but they are clear enough to get the color of the brass tubes.

some of the blanks I like for the color of the tube to come through a bit as it sort of makes the pen glow.

It sounds like a great idea! Anyone know where to get the color shift paints? I’m willing to be the guinea pig in this experiment. ��
