Metallic water-based paint
Metal Color is a new range of water-based metallic colors, especially designed for airbrushing. In the development of these new and innovative metallic colors, the latest generation of aluminum pigments has been used in a specifically designed formula which results in a series of colors of exceptional resistance and adherence to plastics and metal. Metal Color can be applied directly on models without the need for the use of a primer, although in the case of fuselages and components for airplane models it is recommended to first apply a glossy Black Primer to bring forth the unique and special quality of the aluminum finish. The range of Metal Color consists of 19 references, available in 32ml. bottles with a flip top/eyedropper closure.
How to Use: Shake well before using. Pour the paint directly into the cup of the airbrush, either undiluted or previously diluted with Thinner 71.261. Colors can be mixed in the cup of the airbrush. Metal Color dries almost instantly on the model and permits immediate application of aging processes such as the use of washes, pigments, and dry-brush techniques. It is however recommended to wait an hour or so of curing time before manipulating the fresh layer of paint.
Metal Color Gloss Black Primer (VLJ77660) A water-based acrylic-polyurethane primer, which dries quickly to the touch, and confers a glossy, self leveling base coat of extraordinary resistance. The painting of the model can be continued almost immediately after applying the primer, although when using masking tape, it is recommended to allow the primer to cure for some 12 hours before beginning the masking process.
Gloss Varnish Metal Color (VLJ77657) The varnish has been formulated es - pecially for airbrushing; it dries very fast and does not leave fingerprints (no tack). Gloss Varnish 77657 can be applied directly or diluted with distilled water or Thinner 71261. In some cases, a layer of varnish is enough but if more layers are required, an interval of 30 minutes is suggested between each coat. Once protected by the varnish, the colors resist the application of oils, glazes, and even pure turpentine and light washes with alcohol.
