why does slime emit light?

The main reasons are the addition of luminous powder. It is a photoluminescent(PL) pigment.

PL pigment is a kind of light -excited and light-storing luminescent powdery crystals.

It can absorb and store light energy as being exposed to the light source, then re-emit visible light slowly over time(The human eye perceives light as a particular color).

Where can I buy luminous powder?
