The Model Color program contains a huge range of colors and also has an interesting collection of mediums and varnishes specially designed for Miniature and Model painting. The Model Color formula consists of permanent pigments for detailed work; this ice-blue color is also completely light-fast and opaque, except for the fluorescent and transparent colors that are semi-opaque. The colors are chosen with the help and advice of the best model painters from different countries.
The ice blue color can easily be applied with a brush and dry to a matte result. The consistency of Model Color ensures an extremely smooth and tight paint film without any trace of the brush strokes. Mistakes can be corrected with water or with a little alcohol, provided this is done immediately. This ice-blue color can also be diluted with other mediums to achieve glazes and other layer applications. Professional model painters always work with a wet brush and dilute the paint with water and matt medium, after which they apply it in various thin layers to simulate depth and shadows.
The "eyedropper" (or eye dropper) ensures that the amount of paint can be dosed very easily and the paint does not dry out so quickly. The unique thing about this ice blue paint is that it is delivered in a so-called "eyedropper" jar containing 17ml. acrylic paint. Of course it can always happen that the opening is sometimes blocked a bit. You can easily solve this by releasing the opening with a needle or thin cocktail stick.
