Zillah Minx launches UV dayglo fabric paint brand

Zillah Minx from Rubella Ballet has teamed up with Zuper Paints to launch her own brand of dayglo fabric paint. There's a Facebook page about it here and you can buy it here.

Kilabitzzz Ltd Zuperpaint is proud to link up with Zillah Minx to produce their exclusive high quality range of Zillah Minx Zuperpaint.

Zillah Minx is the lead singer of seminal Punk dayglo band Rubella Ballet. A band that pioneered the fluorescent ‘dayglo punk’ look in the 1980’s, a time when others were drab and almost colourless.

Making her own clothing and painting them with fluorescent paint then performing on stage with UV blacklighting she created a memorable bright splash of colour.

Other bands and current day clothing designers, including Louise Gray, have credited her for influencing them when designing their own looks.

Zillah has released a number of albums and performed around the world, also spending some time in the neon fluorescent scene of raves and dance clubbing. Zillah remains involved with the dayglo scene and still performs on stage with blacklighting and fluorescent colours.

We have created a range of products to complement her creative design needs and have now made them available to the public, so that you can buy them and make your own UV glowing fluorescent items.

Products in the Zillah Minx Zuperpaint range include acrylic paints, fabric paints and nail varnish; all in super bright fluorescent colours that glow in UV blacklight.

Zillah uses these products on stage and on her clothing, now you too can use Zillah Minx Zuperpaint to get superb results, just like Zillah.
