This is really cool. I thought I was happy with just one library set.The multiple sets stacked is a much better effect especially if you can stack the DF to have double high walls to match the stacked bookcases.Giving the build a high ceiling look.The blacklight effect rocks!

I painted the library pieces. I then purchased some wildfire invisible clear color by modern masters. It comes in 4 or 5 clear colors that glow under black light. I randomly chose a few books and painted them to glow. I have 2 or 3 thomarillion library sets with extra shelves painted, about 40 book cases. 10 of them have something painted to glow under black light. When we play I randomly choose a few book cases and put them in the library. It makes it fun for both the players and myself to "discover" magic. In fact I am doing this for weapons, armor, and items. Because it dries clear and once sealed you can not tell if it will glow or not compared with the other pieces. It works great. We add a little bit of theatrics while we are roll playing the spell.

"... [insert wizard name] goes into a trance, utters some words and seems to dim a little as his spirit enters the line between the mortal world and the world of magic all around us.. To the wizard everything is in a hazy purple light. Items glow that are magical..."
