Mordant Earth is a new paint that enables any painter to create a cracked earth effect on the bases of their miniatures. Simply paint it straight onto the base of any miniature and wait for it to dry. It really is that easy. The example in the photos above is painted over a black undercoat, as the Agrellan Earth dries the undercoat will be exposed in the cracks. This pot contains 24ml of Citadel Technical: Mordant Earth. As with all of our paints, it is a non-toxic, water-based acrylic paint designed for use on plastic, metal, and resin Citadel miniatures.
