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 withsuperbaseto 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 (oursaint potionis an amazing white acrylic that works well)
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, sun or heat.

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.
