Vallejo Metal Color Acrylic Airbrush Paint - Gloss Black Primer
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.
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.
Airbrush and Compressor: The viscosity of Metal Color lets you work with airbrushes as small as 0.2 mm without having to dilute the colors, but environmental conditions can alter the viscosity of the product and cause the need for further dilution. We recommend working with a compressor pressure between 10-15 PSI, 0.75-1.10 Bar, (0.5-1 kgs).
Metal Colours are available in a 32 ml. bottle with a flip top/eyedropper closure. This packaging helps prevent the paint from evaporating and drying out in the container.
