What makes Invisible Spray special?
Our formula has been developed through rigorous testing, and specifically designed for the purpose of making rainworks. So what's that mean?
Totally invisible when surface is dry
Invisible Spray is the only superhydrophobic coating that we have tested that is completely undetectable on a sunny day. You can't see, feel, or smell a difference.
Eco-Friendly & Biodegradable
Once a rainwork is dry, it is completely non-toxic!
Rainworks do not damage the surface they are on, and they can be easily removed using any earth-friendly cleaning product and a little bit of scrubbing.
Rainworks generally last 2-4 months (though we have seen them last as long as a year under the right conditions). They are most vivid for the first few weeks, and they gradually grow more subtle over time.
Our spray utilizes nano-technology, which means it only takes a tiny bit of Invisible Spray to create a rainwork.
This 16oz bottle of Invisible Spray can cover 80-110 square feet with 2 coats. (We recommend using 2 coats because it lasts much longer.)
This is the perfect size bottle if you're thinking about decorating your neighborhood or campus with rainworks. To help you visualize the amount of spray included in this bottle: when we hosted our Pokémon-themed scavenger hunt in Seattle, we created 8 medium-to-large sized Pokémon using less than one 16oz bottle.

Chemical-Resistant Trigger Sprayer
Invisible Spray is a solvent-based formula, which causes most trigger sprayers to deteriorate and stop working.
Each 16oz bottle includes a special chemical-resistant trigger sprayer, which holds up against the solvent so that you can keep using the same bottle for months!
Free Video Tutorials
We have been refining our technique since we came up with the idea for rainworks, and we're constantly finding ways to improve upon the process.
We want to save you all the trouble we went through, so we've produced a set of free high-quality tutorials to show you the optimal way to spray, defining the best surfaces and stencil materials, and providing other tips and tricks for making crisp, awesome-looking rainworks.
Don't know how to make stencils? No problem!
Not only will every Invisible Spray Kit ships with a pre-printed flower stencil, but we've also produced a tutorial showing you how to create more elaborate stencils, like the ones we make.

The Right Surfaces
Invisible Spray will repel water from absorbent surfaces including concrete, wood, stone, cardboard, fabric, etc,. When making rainworks, the image is visible due to the contrast between the dry surface and the wet surface.
If you're curious about whether Rainworks Invisible Spray will work on a specific surface, simply test the surface by pouring some water onto it. If the surface changes color when it gets wet, you can make a Rainwork there. The higher the contrast, the better your rainwork will look.
Invisible Spray will not work on non-absorbent surfaces such as glass, plastic, metal, and sealed wood.

Anybody who makes a rainwork can add their creation to the official map, so rainy-day explorers nearby can go out and find them! We want to help turn the world into a big rainy-day scavenger hunt.
We believe in being open and up-front about the personal and environmental safety of our product. The spray is a solvent-based formula. Because of the solvent, it is not safe to drink the liquid or inhale the vapor. If the spray gets on your hands, just wash it off. If it is on your hands for too long the most it can do is cause mild skin dryness/irritation. If it gets in your eyes you rinse them thoroughly with water.
Once the Invisible Spray is sprayed on the ground, the solvent evaporates, leaving only the biodegradable water-repelling ingredients locked to the surface, making it superhydrophobic, creating the rainwork!
Rainworks, wet or dry, do not make the ground more slippery. There is no change in the texture of the surface whatsoever.
