Vallejo Model Color is a range of 218 acrylic colors, very highly pigmented, and formulated for use on models and miniatures. Vallejo Model Color is perfect for use on all surfaces, and especially formulated to adhere to metals, plastics and resins.
Vallejo Model Colors have been formulated with the same permanent pigments used in fine arts; all colors are completely light fast and opaque, (with the exception of the fluorescent and transparent colors, which are semi-opaque). 8 metallic pigments (in an alcohol base) are included in the range, since these give a harder brilliance than water based metallic colors.
The consistency of Vallejo Model Color allows for an extremely smooth and uniform paint layer, with no trace of brushstrokes. Professional model painters always work with a wet brush and dilute the paint with water or Mat Medium, applying many thin layers to achieve depth and shadows. Colors may also be diluted with other Model Color Mediums for glazes and layered applications.
The water based formula of Vallejo Model Color has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is non toxic, non flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. Errors can be corrected immediately with water or alcohol. Model Color paints dry quickly to a matte, even and waterproof finish.
