    Continued evolution of my "Black Lume" projects

    My first few batches of dark lume were admittedly grainy and not as bright as I would have liked. I experimented with a few different combination of various lume powders and basically anything that would tint the solution black and came up with something I am really really really happy with. Granted this is more charcoal than black but I feel that I reached a balance between daytime color and luminosity that I am happy with. No animals were hurt in the making of this product, but my poor blendtec blender will never be the same. The only thing I don't have a photo of is what it looks like in sunlight.. my coworkers referred to it as "radioactive". I'll try to snap an outdoor pic over the weekend but for now here are some lightbox photos:

    Dare I ask for the recipe?!! Or if you'd be willing to sell some of your mixture, please PM me with price, or recipe and where you got your materials. Thanks for awesome pics and cool project.

    *edit*
    I'm a tool, didnt realize who posted this. I'm sure your not interested in selling just your lume or giving recipe...lmao. Cool look though.

    While I could sell you some premixed lume you probably won't have much use for it as all of my formulas are water thin and acetone based. They work well on my dials as all of my finishes are epoxy based however a normal painted dial would be completely destroyed in the process.

    That has completely transformed the look of your pieces, Ill admit I wasnt a huge fan of the large amounts of lume that you style your product with but the black is soooo nice, especially against the carbon.

    A+

    That is fantastic. I would love to see a sterile sandwich dial homage done with your materials.

    Could you do a whole face with the black lume Pyro? I think it'd give a great texture to the dial face, and would look amazing at night. I'd definitely be interested in purchasing one if possible

    That is my favorite of any of your watches. Very understated, but cool.......

    I like it. It almost has a backlit fabric look to the dial.
