The Model Color formula consists of permanent pigments for detailed work; This sandy brown color is also completely lightfast and opaque, with the exception of the fluorescent and transparent colors which are semi-opaque. The colors have been chosen with the help and advice of the best model painters from different countries. 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.
This sandy brown color can also be diluted with other mediums to create glazes and other layering applications. The sandy brown color can easily be applied with a brush and dried to a matte result. The consistency of Model Color ensures an extremely smooth and tight paint film without any traces of brush strokes. Professional model painters always work with a wet brush and dilute the paint with water and matte medium, then apply it in several thin layers to simulate depth and shadows. Errors can be corrected with water or a little alcohol, provided this is done immediately.
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 sandy brown paint is that it is supplied in a so-called "eyedropper" jar containing 18 ml. acrylic paint. Of course, it can always happen that the opening sometimes becomes a little clogged. You can easily solve this by using a needle or thin cocktail stick to clear the opening.
