light emitting pigment
Since we released the original LIT you've all been asking if we could make it work with other colours. As it relied on naturally occurring earth elements to work, we weren't sure if we could pull it off BUT we've finally cracked it!
BLUE LIT IS HERE and it is a gorgeous blue toned version of the most powerful light emitting pigment on the planet!
NOTE: BLUE LIT IS WHITE IN COLOUR UNTIL CHARGED AND NEEDS TO BE CHARGED WITH SUNLIGHT OR A UV LIGHT - it will NOT charge under white / LED light or heat!
This creation by Stuart Semple blends some of the planet's finest light emitting pigments and rare earth activators to provide all artists* with the ultimate light emitting paint.
What does it do?
- Unlike other glowing things, Lit can be recharged an unlimited number of times
- Its super high luminescence will often glow brighter than the ambient light around it
- After super-bright initial glow, will afterglow for up to a few hours (depending on your mix)
- Has been specially formulated to mix with superbase to create a super pigmented, mega glow paint that will stick to almost anything.
- Mixes straight into resin
Non toxic - contains no hazardous or radioactive substances.
How do you use it?
Important - you can't just mix this with water like Stuart's other powder paints. It needs a binder and we've designed it to work with superbase to create a highly pigmented acrylic paint that will stick to almost anything. However you can also stir it into linseed oil to create an oil paint. NOTE: if you are putting it over a dark surface it's a good idea to put down a layer of white first (our saint potion is an amazing white acrylic that works well)
LIT MIXES STRAIGHT INTO RESIN
- Mix 1 part lit powder to 1.5 parts Superbase
- If you’re having trouble try adding a tiny amount of water to lit first
- Add more powder to achieve desired consistency
- (Feel free to experiment with ratios depending on your application)
- Optional - feel free to add a clearcoat or varnish to protect your final work
- Charge up with a light source.
- Watch it glow and share your work with hashtag #shareTheLight
- VITAL: only mix as much as you need, you can't keep LIT once it is mixed. Even in an airtight jar the chemical reaction with Superbase will make it go hard.

Don't eat it, rub it in your eyes, get it too near your mouth. Probably best not to let kids play with it without an adult helping.
