All paints are airbrush ready. By nature all paint may vary in consistency based on pigment. You may find some paints to be slightly thicker than others which are natural properties of paint. Mission Models does not add any additional additives to our paints which results in no shelf life , hard settles or breakdown.
MMP paint is very easy to use. We recommend thinning to the following ratio for the best performance. Below are some basic examples. For best performance please follow our carefully researched ratios.
DO NOT MIX 50/50. Mission Models thinner is very powerful and only the smallest amount of thinner is needed. In the mixing cup your reduced paint will appear thicker than what you may be used to. This is normal. MMP paint will dry smooth, thin and level. It will not hide the finest of details. Mixed properly you will find a beautiful opaque finish which requires minimal coats.
All paint should be stirred not shaken in the paint cup.
Polyurethane Intermix 1-2 drops to 10 drops paint ( Stir in only do not shake ) 2-4 drops to 20 drops paint ( stir in only do not shake )
Thinner / Reducer 20/30% MMP thinner to 1 part paint ( 2/3 drops thinner to 10 drops paint) 20/30% MMP thinner to 2 part paint ( 2/3 drops thinner to 20 drops paint )
PSI 10 , 15 , 20 depending on your needs.
TIP: add one or two drops of MMP Polyurethane Intermix for additional reduced tip dry when spraying straight from the bottle. MMP Poly increases flow , lowers drying times , added leveling , increased blending when brush painting, durability and adds a slight eggshell finish. As modelers we highly recommend this as an option.
