A range of 223 acrylic colours, very highly pigmented, formulated for models
and miniatures. Model Color is indicated for all surfaces, and especially
formulated to adhere to plastics and polyesters.
The Modelcolor range contains 223 colors and an extensive assortment of
mediums and varnishes, designed especially for Miniature and Modelpainting.
The colors have been chosen with the help and advice of the best model
painters from many countries. Those colors which have corresponding Federal
Standard, RAL and RLM equivalencies are so identified.
(Please see Equivalent
Modelcolor has been formulated with permanent pigments for fine arts; all
colors are completely lightfast and opaque, (with the exception of the
fluorescent and transparent colors, which are semi-opaque). A few metallic
pigments (in an alcohol base) are included in the range, since these give a
harder brilliance than the waterbased metallics. (Please see Liquid
The consistency of Modelcolor allows for an extremely smooth and uniform
paintfilm, 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 Mediums (See "Auxiliary
Products for Modelpainting") for glazes and layered applications.
The waterbased formula of Modelcolor has been specifically developed for
adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is
not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. Errors can be
corrected immediately with water or alcohol Modelcolor dries quickly to a
matte, even and waterproof finish. Exact drying time depends on the
temperature and humidity of the environment, on the surface which has been
painted, and on the thickness of the paint layer - although the colors are dry
to the touch within minutes, the water content keeps on evaporating, and the
paint does not acquire its true permanence until several weeks after
Modelcolor is presented in plastic bottles of 17ml. with an eyedropper device
which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills.
Metallic colors in alcohol based are presented in childproof bottles of 35 ml.
