ABOUT MR COLOR PAINT SERIES
Mr Color paint from Mr Hobby is one of the highest quality solvent-based acrylic paint in the world, with amazing tone, balance, adhesion and colour richness. This fast-drying paint is great for both hand brushing and airbrushing.
Mr Color offers a wider range of colours and finishes than Mr Hobby's water-based alternative "Aqueous Hobby Color", and will dry to a smoother and harder finish.
Thinned using Mr Color Levelling Thinner, Mr Color Thinner or Mr Rapid Thinner, with a thinning ratio for airbrushing from 1:1 to 1:2 (Paint to Thinner ratio).
Mr Color Levelling Thinner has added retarder over the standard Mr Color Thinner, allowing for a smoother, enhanced finish.
Mr Color Rapid Thinner is designed to reduce drying time, particularly when airbrushing.
This thinner also enhances metallic Mr Color paints by allowing them to quickly dry before the metallic pigments settle resulting in an improved metallic finish.
However, it is not recommended for gloss colours as the reduced drying time may reduce the gloss effect.
FINISHES AND MODIFICATIONS
Mr Color paints come in four types of finishes: Flat, Semi-Gloss, Gloss and Metallic. For gloss-type paints, the gloss level can be adjusted by mixing Mr Color Flat Base additive (model number C-030, C-188 or C-189).
As a general example, mix approximately 5% to 10% of Flat Base to convert to a semi-gloss finish, or 10% to 20% to achieve a matte/flat finish.
Solvent-based paint contains harmful fumes and air particulates when airbrushing. When working with paint of this type, please ensure your workspace is well ventilated and a suitable paint respirator must be worn at all times.
