I wondered at first if the white I was seeing was the base material of the Mordant Earth somehow separated from the pigment, but no, the paint itself had pulled apart. I was able to peel off the toppings from the base and this is what it looked like underneath – you can definitely see where the red paint retracted leaving chunks of white showing through. Weird, and kind of gross.

Off again to the internet and I found a video on Warhammer TV suggesting to put down ‘Ardcoat on top of the paint rather than PVA. Same principle I suppose and a good place to start. And should the PVA be above or below the paint? I broke down a number of test scenarios and set about to see what would look best. All of these bases were primed with Wraithbone first, all references to “paint” are a splotched mix of Mephiston Red, Vallejo Light Orange, and Vallejo Flat Yellow. Here’s what I inflicted on each one: Temple Guard Blue (teal) – This cool, blue-green teal color provides a balanced contrast with Mordant Earth, creating a harmonious color combo that works well for painting infantry and tanks. Iron Hands: For those who prefer a grittier, industrial look, Mordant Earth is ideal for painting the metal components of the Iron Hands’ cyborg bodies. Its earthy tones complement the metallic elements and give the impression of aged and well-used machinery.These recommendations are made based on the ability of Mordant Earth to create a solid foundation for the subsequent layers of paint, allowing for a natural and harmonious look for each of these factions in the Warhammer 40K universe. Mordant Earth Colour Schemes & Combinations Imperial Fists: Mordant Earth is a great choice for painting the yellow power armor of the Imperial Fists Space Marine chapter. When used as a base coat, it provides a natural and realistic earthy tone that complements the bright yellow, making the armor stand out. Depending on where you live, the time it may take for your exchanged product to reach you, may vary. In addition, I thought the surface of the dried Mordant Earth was just too smooth and shiny for what I had in mind. It was far more pāhoehoe than ʻaʻā. It looked frankly like a hard chocolate coating which just made me need to get some ice cream while I pondered what I was going to do next. What Went Wrong, and How to Do It Better

Balthasar Gold (brass) – This rich metallic brass color provides a warm, luxurious accent to Mordant Earth, making it a great choice for painting Space Marine armor, guns, or machinery.

Lava Base

When painting with Mordant Earth, you can create an eye-catching contrast by combining it with a range of flesh tones, brass, and teal colors. The following are some Citadel Color paints that can be used with Mordant Earth: But when I applied this approach with Mordant Earth I found the PVA itself and the layer of paint under it also pulled apart leaving the primed base or maybe the milky PVA underneath exposed. Averland Sunset (flesh tone) – This warm, orangey-brown flesh tone works well with Mordant Earth as a split-complementary color combination, creating a bold contrast that helps to make the details pop. It was at this point that I was discussing the bases with my brother, and he obnoxiously asked if I’d used straight PVA or watered down. Another variable to consider, another round of samples!
