Product Description

Product Description

These are pre-thinned acrylic airbrush colours from Acrylicos Vallejo

They are waterbased paints which are non-toxic and non-flammable and come in a 17ml eyedropper bottle which prevents spills.

The formula contains a new acrylic resin with properties until now impossible to obtain in a waterbased acrylic. The resistence, hardness and covering power of Model Air is superior to any know acrylic for airbrushing.

The pigments used for airbrush colours need to be ground to the finest possible consistency to avoid obstruction of the airbrush valves. The revolutionary milling process of the pigments used in the Model Air formula gives the modelpainter technical assurance and finest texture when applying the colours to the model, and produces a very superior qualtity when applying the colours with a brush for misiscule details, for washes and transparencies and layered application of diluted glazes.

Colours can be mixed 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 excepcionally well to all surfaces. The adhesion of Model Air to resin models, plastic, steel and white metal is extraordinary.

Once protected with varnish, (Gloss,Matte or Satin) Model Air can be overpainted with solvent based enamels or oilcolours: they withstand cleaning with turprntine and even a light wash with alcohol. The resistance to abrasion of the colours, once varnished is superior to any other waterbased acrylic..<pr>This set contains:

Incredible set of products, particularly if using with an airbrush due to the dripper. Also suitable for standard painting although they can be a little too thin and need a few coats. With these colours you can mix practically any other colour you need. Highly recommended as a starter set. Arrived in 2 days.

I ordered these for us to try out with our airbrush and Im well impressed. They are mixed to exactly the right consistancy - which means I dont have to mess around watering down our acrylic paints. This is the basic set with all the primary colours in and obviously some browns and greens. Dont be put off by the picture on Amazon which shows the military set as the picture is wrong. Using the coulours in the set you should be able to mix any colour you want so its a great starter kit. This probably isnt the cheapest way to paint but its a good idea to get one of these when you start up. It shows you the thickness you need your paints and gives you the confidence to go on and mix your own. Happy spraying!

Heard a lot about these paints from other gamers, and since taking the plunge and buying my own airbrush set up thought I would get the paints to go with, colours are good when used with an airbrush, giving good coverage and in easy to use squeezy bottles.

Love the paints...first time with Vallejo. Packaging is obviously for display purposes, rather than to help you keep the bottles neat...but if you stand them lol up, you can end up searching for the right colour. Very minor whinge only. My cheap airbrush works well with them, as they come, or slightly thinned.

First Vallejo model air paints I bought. Great starter set, I was new to air brushing and this set provided some basic colours for models as well as some work on various paper types and wood. I was advised early on to add some thinner to the paints in the air brush, this has considerably enhanced the flow of the paint and makes the paint last longer. Great for experimenting with your air brush.

This set gives you what you need to start painting miniatures. I've been able to mix and blend a variety of different colours out of the ones available in this set, which provides a good starting range. Lovely paints to work with.

Had to dilute these paints by about 10% for my cheap airbrush. So great a little went a long way.

Quality paints which do not need watering down for spray painting though an airbrush.
A little goes a long way and Vallejo are a top brand for model paints.

Goes onto models great both as a base coat and for detailed/skilful highlighting.
Very happy with these and cannot think why I have not used them before.
I am a Vallejo convert and will buy other products from their range soon.
