Metal Color is a water-based range of metallic colors. The Metal Color range offers a wide range of bright, reflective shades in order to imitate the metallic finish of aircraft of all types and eras. It can be applied directly to the model using an airbrush or diluted with our Vallejo Airbrush Thinner or Flow Improver. Metal Color self-levels and dries very quickly, preserving every little surface detail, but we advise waiting 12 hours before applying any paint masks.
Additionally, Metal Color can be tinted directly in the airbrush cup using colors from the Model Air range. It can also be applied with a brush. Recommended compressor settings for our colors are around 15-20 Psi or 0.5-1 kg. For proper maintenance of the airbrush, we recommend using Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner available in 85ml and 200ml. Remember to use proper ventilation and a respirator when spraying with these paints.
