Wizardry in Progress 9/12/18

Aside from getting a TON of editing done this week, I was able to play with a new toy, Lit glowing pigment!This stuff is super fun to mess with.

Let's take a look.

Lit is a pigment powder from Culture Hustle, it is advertised as the "Glowiest Glow Pigment" and so far it seems to be pretty accurate.

Since it arrived on Saturday, I've done a few tests with it and added some to the Terminator Librarian.

I've never mixed my own paint before, so there is a bit of a learning curve there. When I did the librarian, I mixed it too thick and it was kinda difficult to work with.

The effect is nice though and it does glow well in a low light setting. Not at all with overhead lighting, and very nice in the dark.

After that, I tried mixing it and using for plasma weaponry.  I tried mixing it thinner than I had previously and this worked well. It did build up quickly though, after multiple coats, clogging some details.

Finally, last night, I mixed it with some heavy gel medium and added it to the tops of my chemical vats. I really like how that worked and it looks nice and toxic now.

I can see a lot of potential for certain types of things, but its uses do seem limited.

I keep hearing about folks wanting to paint up Nighthaunt ghosts with it. I have some ghosts laying around, I might try using it as a base coat.

I do worry about it getting overly gritty. We shall see.

That's it for now. I'm still working on more tests. I'll have an actual write up and possibly some video on it soon. 

Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the latest in the Let's Paint series. Plus if you like what I do and want to support the site and my painting endeavors, you can do so over on Patreon.
