Spot-on sand colours

Sand is mostly a mixture of quartz and various soils. Reproducing it is always tricky as your usual pigments are either to bright or contain too much yellow. Spot-on sands combine shades of yellow, brown and grey for a realistic result! 

No. 04a Intensive Sand

This sand reproduction is superior to straight yellow sand in that it is a three colour blend that goes nicely with your model base coat and don't stand out too much although it is quite vibrant. Appropriate for Europe, Africa, Middle East and surprisingly any construction site. Can be applied along with other earth colours for added variation. Please click the jar image to see this pigment in action! 

Recommended techniques: dusting, capillary action, weathering liquid/paste

Combine with: Alkyd, ENML 2.0 or Acrylic binders

Available textures: zero, fine, coarse

Available volumes: 45 ml jar

No. 04b Dull Sand

A more subtle sand reproduction. Superior to straight yellow sand in that it is a four colour blend. This is your common dust on the road, quartz sand mixed with different soils that slightly impart the colour. Low on clay, that's why it is greyish rather than yellow. If you think that our intensive sand blend is too bright for your particular scenario this is the colour for you. Goes well with any base coat. Appropriate for Europe, Africa and Middle East. Please click the jar image to see this pigment in action!
