im not very experienced in chemistry so forgive my ignorance, but could you use this dye to see in the dark by casting light of higher energy?

Now i know... therefore I Glow-Wow!!!

gotta ripoff a meme here:
mix ALL THE DYES!
OK seriously now, when too many colors of paint mix it usually comes out brown or black. so what will happen if all these dyes are mixed?
