Pictures shows sample bottles. This item includes one bottle of the listed color.
Modelcolor is presented in plastic bottles of 17ml. with an eyedropper device
which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills.
The Modelcolor range contains 208 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.
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.
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
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 application.
