What are diffraction Glasses and how do they work?

If you want to enjoy the concerts, enhance raves, festivals and wanted to enjoy the firework shows, then diffraction glasses can help you a lot.

If you understand the term “diffraction” then you can understand the exact use of the diffraction glasses. The term diffraction is used int he Physics and it refers to a phenomenon which converts a single beam of white light into a colorful light spectrum.

Let VisionFX Show you the light!

Same is the work done by the diffraction glasses. When you wear these glasses in a concert where there are different sources of lights and LEDs on the stage, it would be difficult to see the surrounding areas which are dark.

People who stand at a distance from the stage they can’t enjoy the show fully as they can’t see the areas around them and they can’t enjoy the lights of the stage as well.

In these situations, when a participant is standing away from the stage and wears a diffraction glass, the light of the stage fall on the diffraction glasses and then it makes more spectrum. Due to these diffraction glasses, the wearer can enjoy the show and can feel like he or she is the part of the show and standing near the stage.

There are different names associated with the diffraction glasses and so are the different purposes of these diffraction glasses.

Prism glasses, rave, fireworks glasses, rainbow glasses, light show, refraction or LED glasses.

These glasses can be used for different purposes like:

  • Musical concerts
  • Firework shows
  • Watching 3D movies on TV
  • Christmas Lights
  • EDM Events and Raves

and many more applications of these diffraction glasses.

You can easily find the diffraction glasses from different online stores and get them shipped to your doorstep. Just make it sure that you are getting the glasses from a renowned brand like VisionFX.

You can select different colors of glasses, like blue, orange, pink or even clear glasses. The frames are just like the regular glasses and you can easily fold them to keep in your pocket.

How to prepare for your next fundraiser

Summer is in full bloom and it’s never been a better time to start organizing a fundraiser for your favourite cause or organisation. Especially with 2019 here, new year, new you? If your new resolution is to help out more in your community, but you don’t know where to start, try out these tips to get your next big fundraising idea off the ground.

1. Choose a good charity

Whether it is your absolute favourite or one that contributes to a cause you are passionate about, picking out a great charity is always a good starting point.

Once selecting your focus, a great next step is to reach out to that organisation and see if they can help or provide resources for your fundraiser. Many charities are open and excited to help out, so don’t be afraid to ask because you may be surprised with the responses you get!

2. Good idea and theme

Once you have your charity picked out and they are potentially onboard with helping, your next step should be figuring out what kind of fundraiser you want to hold. This is your time to get creative. Try researching online for popular fundraising ideas and try asking friends and family what could work best.

For example, fundraiser ideas like recycling drives could work better for environmental issues, while walkathons and parties would better benefit cancer organisations. It’s all about thinking of the best ways to get people involved in the most efficient way.

Once your idea is set, it’s time to start preparing. Picking a theme and getting decor to accompany your event will ensure that it will be not only memorable but successful too. If you’re looking to hold a fundraiser outdoors this summer, looking into things like confetti and Holi powder will bring your fundraiser to a whole new level.

3. Brand event well and promote

Once all the logistics are taken care of, proper branding and promotion for your event will ensure it turns out successful. Giving away branded t-shirts is always a great strategy, with the profits going to charity, but being active on social media can really help with getting the word out beforehand.

Creating event pages online and getting the details on social media can help pass your fundraiser’s details through the hands of people who wouldn’t have initially heard about it.

Be sure to use all forms of communication you can to get the details out, because the more people that hear about, the more money and awareness goes to your great cause.

Basic Tips On Using Liquid Latex

Using liquid latex can be a nightmare for beginners. Check out these basic tips!

Liquid latex (sold by us under the PaintGlow brand) is a staple for theater buffs and costume makeup artists. But using this handy product can easily turn into a sticky, unprofessional-looking mess. Below, we provide you with an overview on how to use liquid latex so that it looks as great—with as little mess as possible.

What You’ll Need

  • Brush or a soft sponge
  • Moisturising lotion or creme
  • Liquid Latex (der)
  • Hair Dryer or similar
Follow thse guidelines, adapted in part from Make-up Designory’s book on Character Make-up:
  1. If you’ll be covering a large area of skin, apply a light coat of moisturizing lotionbefore using the liquid latex.
  2. Before applying the liquid latex, shake the bottle extremely well.
  3. Using a brush or a sponge, apply a thin coat of the liquid latex to the desired area. A common mistake beginners often make when learning how to use liquid latex is not preserving their brush or sponge after use. Make sure to pause your application and rinse your tools immediately in soapy water to wash off the liquid latex before it dries on your tool!
  4. If you plan to apply multiple coats of latex for your look, a blow dryer can come in handy. After each layer, quickly dry the latex so you can move onto the next coat.
  5. To remove the liquid latex from your skin, simply scratch loose an edge and peel off.

Avoid getting latex on your hair by shaving or using a light coating of vegetable oil on areas like eyebrows first.

Try making wrinkles with liquid latex, or a special wrinkle stipple. Pull the skin outward while applying, drying, and powdering the latex. Then, release the skin for a perfectly wrinkle-y look. Read this post about how to make an old age look using liquid latex.

Some Pro Tips!

If you want to make a cut using liquid latex, paint a wide strip of latex to your desired size. After it dries, roll the edges towards the center and coat with another layer of latex. Learn how to use latex appliance to make an authentic-looking head wound.
