Airbrush Ready: How to use Modelers DP paint
How to Use: Mix paint well; using a mechanical mixer is strongly recommended. Using the included funnel-filter, pour the paint into your airbrush cup, thin as desired. Spray your project using multiple light coats. Allow sheen to disappear between coats (usually 5-10 minutes).
Recommended Thinner: ModelersDP paint performs best when thinned with Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) 91%. Refresh paint with a small amount of alcohol before mixing, add more as needed. Dilute freely to ease the flow of paint through the airbrush, reduce opacity, and aid mixing.
Weathering: Pour a little paint in the bottom of your airbrush cup, add alcohol. Dilute up to 95% alcohol to 5% paint. Color will appear once sheen has dried.
Clean-up: Quick and simple – use soap and water or ammonia-based window cleaner. Spray onto surface areas, filters, funnels, etc. Rinse well with clean water.
Airbrush: Use of a dual-action, gravity-flow airbrush is recommended for ModelersDP airbrush paint.
Compressor Pressure: Optimal PSI varies by airbrush, we recommend starting with 25 psi and increasing or decreasing pressure as needed.
