Sunlight - UV lighting question
« on: December 17, 2013, 06:22:45 AM »
Hello All!  I've got a general question here regarding the bleaching process / uv lighting....  Has anyone tried using those "Ott Lights" that mimick natural sunlight for those of us with Seasonal Affective Disorder....ie tanning booth substitute for bleaching phones?  Just wondering if any had tried it since it's difficult here in Michigan to find a "warm" sunny day to leave one's "baby" out in the cold!

Thanks all

Jim

Yes Jim, I have a similar question/problem. Little sunlight here at this time of year. But I would like to do some experiments.

Does a tanning lamp give the same results? Or is that too powerfull? I can easily get a 2nd hand tanning lamp.
Groeten,
