electric indigo Posted July 14, 2016 Share Posted July 14, 2016 I use Tamiya acrylics with my trusty Badger 350 single action airbrush, starting with a 1:1 paint to thinner mix, with some paints, especially the glossy ones, you have to add a tad more thinner. I begin with a low paint feed on the recessed areas and edges, then apply a light base coat at the open surfaces. After this has dried to the touch, I just repeat the process, if necessary, for flat paints. For glossy finishes, I apply a very wet coat of paint in one pass. The goal is to get just as much paint on the surface so that it will self-level, without having it running or pooling. For primer, I just use grey paint, and I try to avoid top coats.
