In this study, two types of fluorescent hydrogel materials, liquid inks and solid beads, were prepared. The prepared hydrogel ink and beads can emit strong fluorescence under excitation by UV light. The materials were then used for painting and artistic creation, which allowed people to personally experience the magic of fluorescence, discover the fun, and stimulate their interest in chemistry.

Key words: Fluorescence, Hydrogel, Multicolor, Popularization of science
