Bought this for my nephew for Christmas. He loves working with metal soldiers.
This is a useful pack of Vallejo Model Color Acrylic Paints. We have also added a White primer as well as 2 synthetic paint brushes. The ten paints include primary colours (red 70.947, flat yellow 70.953 and prussian blue 70.965), flat green 70.968, medium fleshtone 70.860, burnt. cad. red 70.814 (a type of brown), black 70.950 and white 70.951 and metallic colours (silver 70.997 and old gold 70.878). From these you can mix most other colours pretty easily.
Note: Colours have changed due to stock shortages, so Dark Prussian Blue has been changed to Prussian Blue.
This is especially useful for beginners who want the most essential colours as simply as possible.
Model-Color is very highly pigmented, formulated for models and miniatures and ideal for decorating all miniatures. The colours brush on smoothly, and cover large surfaces easily and without showing brushstrokes. The paints can be diluted with water for air brushing. The paint texture is ideal for tiny details on miniature work. All the shades dry to a matt finish except the metallic and transparent colours. If a glossy, lacquered finish is desired, add one or two thin coats of Brilliant Varnish.
Model-Colour can be diluted with water, and all colours can be mixed with one another. The product does not contain solvents and is not inflammable. Colours do not contain lead pigments, nor ingredients harmful to health.
Errors can be corrected immediately with water, or with a small amount of alcohol. Once the paint has dried, it is waterproof and permanent.
Model-Colour is presented in 17ml bottles with an eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container. It can be used in minimal quantities and keeps for a long time.
The Colour Wheel can illustrate how you can make many colours using just the primary 3 colours; red, yellow and blue. Example: Mix red with blue and you will get purple. By adding some black or white you can create almost any shade you can imagine. Experiment and have fun.
