The colors are 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. The Model Color formula consists of permanent pigments for detailed work; this brown color is also completely lightfast and opaque, except for the fluorescent and transparent colors that are semi-opaque.
This brown color can also be diluted with other mediums to achieve glazes and other layers applications. The brown color can easily be applied with a brush and dry to a matt result. Mistakes can be corrected with water or with a little alcohol, provided this is done immediately. The consistency of Model Color ensures an extremely smooth and tight paint film without any trace of the brush strokes. 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 unique thing about this brown paint is that it is delivered in a so-called "eyedropper" jar containing 17ml. acrylic paint. 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. 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.
