New Page 1
A range of 223 acrylic colours, very highly pigmented, formulated for models and miniatures. Model Color is indicated for all surfaces, and especially formulated to adhere to plastics and polyesters.
The Model color range contains 223 colors and an extensive assortment of mediums and varnishes, designed especially for Miniature and Model painting. The colors have been chosen with the help and advice of the best model painters from many countries. Those colors which have corresponding Federal Standard, RAL and RLM equivalencies are so identified.
(Please see Equivalent values).

Model color has been formulated with permanent pigments for fine arts; all colors are completely lightfast and opaque, (with the exception of the fluorescent and transparent colors, which are semi-opaque). A few metallic pigments (in an alcohol base) are included in the range, since these give a harder brilliance than the water based metallics. (Please see Liquid Gold).

The consistency of Model color allows for an extremely smooth and uniform paint film, with no trace of brushstrokes. Professional model painters always work with a wet brush and dilute the paint with water or Mat Medium, applying many thin layers to achieve depth and shadows. Colors may also be diluted with other Mediums (See "Auxiliary Products for Model painting") for glazes and layered applications.

The water based formula of Model color has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. Errors can be corrected immediately with water or alcohol Model color dries quickly to a matte, even and waterproof finish. Exact drying time depends on the temperature and humidity of the environment, on the surface which has been painted, and on the thickness of the paint layer - although the colors are dry to the touch within minutes, the water content keeps on evaporating, and the paint does not acquire its true permanence until several weeks after application.

Presentation:
Model color is presented in plastic bottles of 17ml. with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills.
Metallic colors in alcohol based are presented in childproof bottles of 35 ml. See Liquid Gold.
