    Prep your workspace. Cover your work area with several layers of scrap paper or aluminum foil. Glow Explosion marker ink can bleed through paper and contains colorants that can stain.

    Activate the markers. Open the foil packet to remove the Glow Explosion Markers. To activate the markers, remove the caps and press each marker straight down on the foil packet for 2-3 seconds. The markers are ready to use when the tips appear moist and colored.

    Create a mystery design. Place the blotter mat included in the package on the protected work surface. Place a piece of Glow Explosion Paper on top of the blotter with the shiny side (the side with the words) down. Draw an image that can be seen as more than one thing. Use one or more markers. Recap the markers after each use. Markers work best for bold, broad designs. Don’t worry if the marks appear light, they will glow once they are activated.
