Toys / miniatures / plastic stuff and fingernails - mix it directly into a clear nail varnish
Resin- it mixes straight in
Exterior projects - mix into a good exterior grade polyurethane varnish from your local hardware store.
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.
TOP TIP: It's best painted over a light colour so put down a layer of white first - we recommend our saint potion (as it's really really good white paint)
Mix 1 part lit powder to 1.5 parts SUPERBASE
We recommend 3 x 150ml bottles of SUPERBASE is enough per 1 x 300g bag of Big Lit
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.

VITAL: YOU CANNOT STORE premixed SUPERBASE and LIT.
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.
Non toxic - contains no hazardous or radioactive substances.
