Go inside Blue Light Visuals, a new way to paint.

When I pulled up to Black Light Visuals, it looked like a former appliance shop.  But as  I walked into the empty building, I could hear music coming from the basement.

I found about 20 people at listening to music, laughing, having a great time and painting -- but this wasn't normal painting. It's a totally new way to paint items , jewelry, clothing and even body parts.

Brad Lawrence and his company are an independent group of painters and creators pioneering the process.

Here's how it works:

First, the paint is put on a liquid. Then, the pattern is manipulated. Lastly, you dip - anything from your arm to a shirt to a hat.
