Vallejo Metal Color

Introduction: 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. Available in 32ml. bottles with a flip top/eyedropper closure.

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.
