Description of test:  From left to right, and top to bottom: 

  1. Control shot made with flash
  2. Same setup, except lit by Black Light .
  3. A detail of the test area. Can you see the pink "X?"
  4. I doctored the #3 photo and put in a green "X" in the center of the pink "X" 


I really wanted to show something with the UV-Killer working. It does. It is just might darn subtle.  I slobbered what was left of a bottle of the sample on the Mossy Oak Break-up and let it set and attempted to photograph it.  The results are there. You can see the big X of UVKiller in the upper left portion of the picture taken in ambient light.  It is a white opaque solution sitting on top of the fabric.   Under UV , it is visible, but faint.  After letting soak in, I made a detail shot.  The UV-Killer glows pink.

Does this mean you will be running around the forest bathed  in pink day-glo? No. As with the RealTree camo's glow, the effect was ultra-subtle, and it appears to be an artifact of the bulb.  Does this mean the deer are going to see the pink glow?  No, deer don't see red very well, so how are they going to see pink?  The UV-Killer  does darken the area considerably under UV.  You saw that with the copier paper.
