    The glowing paint will also make a Geiger counter click away quite nicely, as it is radioactive Radium paint....
    For anyone wondering, the glows looks like this...

    Nice gorget.

    Not the kind of paint, you'd want near you on a regular basis.

    IIRC radium paint was also used in certain bunkers on occasion, where one needed directions in the dark etc.

    Not to mention hand painted numbers on cool "read em in the dark" watch dials...

    Indeed.

    One merely has to Google 'Radium Girls' to have shivers sent down ones spine.
