A transparent, non-staining pigment that resembles Burnt Sienna in color but separates dramatically. Lightfast and extremely versatile, Lunar Earth shares pigment properties with Lunar Black and creates similar amazing textures. Explore their radical reticulating qualities separately, then try painting Lunar Earth into a wet Lunar Black wash. An instant beach-sand and pebbles-magically appears. For a special effect, while your paint is wet, use a cotton ball to lightly dust the fine powdered metallic pigment over the damp surface.

Features:
  • ASTM Lightfastness Rating: Excellent - Not rated yet by ASTM, rating based on DANIEL SMITH's independent testing.
  • Transparency: Transparent
  • Granulating: Yes
  • Staining: No

    Transparent and versatile

    I wanted to buy Green Apatite Genuine, but it was sold out here, so I researched and found people's attempt to emulate it. Through that, I discovered that Lunar Earth is perfect in a Green Apatite mimic mix, but also wonderful for other things. It's very much like a Burnt Sienna or Transparent Red Oxide, although a bit more neutral, but it's also far more transparent. A watery wash just gives you a touch of color, but with marvelous granulation. This means you can combine it in small quantities with other colors like French Ultramarine, where it mildly mutes the blue down to say, a Forget-Me-Not color, while augmenting and colorizing the granulation amazingly well. And it's absolutely gorgeous with Pthalo Turquoise, looks like Lake Powell in Utah, with the red rocks and the turquoise water. Just fabulous.
