Yellow LIT. Handmade glow in the dark watercolors


Yellow LIT.

This listing is for a half pan, full pan or bottle cap of Yellow LIT. LIT colors are created from light emitting pigments, and they glow in the dark! They also are blacklight reactive! Because they absorb and release light, they are not considered lightfast.

The best way to recharge this color so that it glows bright is by putting in the sun. It can be recharged an infinite number of times. LIT colors are intermixable so these light emitting paints can be combined to create an almost unlimited spectrum of your own glow-in-the-dark colors!

LIT is pretty incredible stuff! It's a unique combination of colorants and naturally occurring earth elements that once charged, release light like nothing else! They can glow for up to 12 hours and if charged well can glow brighter than the ambient light around them. It's like light in a jar!

It's important to know that all the LIT's (apart from the classic green lit) will need UV light to charge fully, so sunlight is your best bet. Green LIT can be charged with almost any light source - i.e your phone light, house lights etc.. but the other colors need sunlight.

A small magnet can be added to the pan or cap, at no cost, to allow it to stick to any metal tin, if the artist prefers. Please be sure to select that option. Bottle caps are equivalent in amount of paint to a generous full pan.
