The pigments used for airbrush colours need to be ground to the finest possible consistency to avoid clogging of the airbrush nozzle. The revolutionary milling process of the pigments used in the Model Air formula gives the model painter technical assurance and finest texture when applying the colours to the model, and produces a very superior quality when applying the colours with a brush for minuscule details, for washes and transparencies and layered application of diluted glazes.
Colours can be mixed with one another, diluted with water, Model Air Thinner or Varnish, according to the effect desired, but we recommend the use of Model Air Thinner since this product conserves the properties of the colours. Model Air adheres exceptionally well to all surfaces. The adhesion of Model Air to resin models, plastics, steel and white metal is extraordinary. Once protected with varnish, (Gloss, Matte or Satin) Model Air can be over painted with solvent based enamels or oil colours: they withstand cleaning with turpentine and even a light wash with alcohol. The resistance to abrasion of the colours, once varnished, is superior to any other water based acrylic.
