Teaming up with LemonHearted and the ladies of Naked Bar Soap Co., artist Chris and his wife, studio manager and partner in crime, Jen, added some much needed neon life to a blank building wall.

After discussing the details of the mural with Chris, we knew there would be no better home for our fluorescent paints to glow than in sunny Orlando, Florida. Armed with our Screamin’ Fluorescent acrylic paints, we were on board.

Our Screamin’ SRX Fluorescent Acrylic Paints can be used anywhere that requires high visibility, including murals, sign painting, and store window displays. We knew that the neon pigments in our paints would add the dash of magic those hearts were craving. 

Opting for Signal Green™, Saturn Yellow®, Horizon Blue™, Blaze Orange™ and Aurora Pink®, the mural was off to a bright start.

The story of this mural goes beyond a simple partnership and shows how effortlessly art can help bring a local community together. If you’re interested in adding some color to your local area, there are a few steps that need to occur before the painting can begin.

Special thanks to Chris Uphues for allowing us to sponsor a project as vibrant as this!
