ExodusInside said:Two quick questions.... one - how do i strip old paint off plastic without damaging it? ( airbrushed a model, without reading the label that says NOT FOR AIRBRUSHING ), two - my dad says a few of you may or may not know the appropriate thinning ratio for vallejo paints because it's possible to use them for airbrushing ( said paint from first question )
ExodusInside said:I probably should have went a little more in depth with it.
I airbrushed a few pieces after thinning the paint ( just regular Vallejo model paint, not the airbrush kind ) and it came out kinda clumped. I used a two part paint one part thinner ratio, and I didn't buy Vallejo thinner... just using the thinner I already had which is still acrylic thinner but I guess each company designs their own thinner for their own line so maybe that had something to do with it?? But for sure I'll have to strip and try again. Thanks tho guys, and Elm City, that was quite informative, I'll have to see if I can find a store around here that has the Vallejo airbrushing paints...
Thanks for all the input guys.
