fantastic product, heres a few tips to get best results
on 2 July 2015
this stuff is amazing if you have an airbrush. still good brushed on but looses sight of the point a touch.
a 200ml pot will last you through allot of minitures. i have every shade and there all great. will never go back to rattle cans again.
a few tips i have picked up are
1. always wash models in warm soapy water to remove release agent. some say it make a different some say it doesn't. but for a bit hot water and washing up liquid, why not give them the best chance.
2. will be dry in 10 mins but give the primer 24 hours to fully cure. it promotes durability.
3. put 2 6mm sling shot ammo ball bearings in the pot. you can get 1000 for a few pound. i do this with all my paints, not just these. mixes paint like a dream for more consistent paint. theirs a reason rattle cans have them.
4.drop all Vallejo paint pots in a cup of warm/hot bath temperature water 10 mins before use. increases flow, paints don't need to be thinned as much, paint is richer and not muted by water or thinners.
obviously this all ads time to the painting job, but why bother even starting if your going to rush. there are loads of time saving techniques to off set these steps- batch painting,limit palette colors, drybrush where possible, using inks and of course priming in a basecoat colour using these :)
