Simulating Luminol/Chemiluminescence

Recommended Posts

Hi All

New here, I hope an easy question? I have created some basic forensic activities and 'games' for kids (and adults). I would like to simulate the Chemiluminescence effect that Luminol creates when sprayed on blood using two (or more) other chemicals/liquids:

For example, I want to spray/splash  some translucent (chemical) liquid on a wall and then spray another chemical on that to create the glow you would get using luminol.

Where I live (in Asia), luminol is difficult to get and VERY expensive  (I would be doing this many times) ... importing it isn't an option, etc. Also, I don't want to use blood (health risks and I don't want to have to 'wipe' it off once applied).

So, is/are there a combination of relatively inexpensive, common, not to dangerous chemicals that I can use to simulate this effect? 

My apologies if I haven't explained this so well, I failed Chem 101.

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards
