Hobbynox Airbrush Colors include Opaque (solids), Transparent, Neon, Pearl and Iridescents.
Hobbynox Airbrush Colors work best out of the bottle with a 0.5 mm tip-sized airbrush operated @ 2.8-3.5 BAR. For smaller tip-sizes, lower the BAR settings and fine-line detailed artwork - reduce with Hobbynox SP Reducer/Cleaner (up to 25%).
Hobbynox Airbrush Colors cure with the assistance of mild-heat and airflow.
Items to be painted with Hobbynox Airbrush Colors include:
R/C Polycarbonate Bodyshells
Model Kits (if the model doesn't have too much details)
Custom Airbrush Paint Jobs
Clear with (if needed):
Hobbynox Intercoat-Clear (dries flat - not meant to be used as a true gloss clear coat)
Automotive Urethane Clear
Many other clear/top coats are compatible - test first
Hobbynox SP Reducer/Cleaner (sold separately):
To be used with Hobbynox Airbrush Colors when a thinner viscosity is wanted/needed.
Generally added 10% per volume to paint. May be added in greater quantities to achieve best viscosity for atomization of paint.
Paint has a 72 hour pot-life after mixing with SP Reducer/Cleaner.
The best airbrush cleaner for Hobbynox Airbrush Colors - especially when the colors are mixed with Hobbynox Intercoat-Clear.
Hobbynox Intercoat-Clear (sold separately):
Water-based polyurethane clear which can be used as protective inter-coat and balancing clear over Hobbynox Airbrush Colors or directly mixed with the paint for improved spray performance, improved coating durability and urethane-like performance with automotive airbrushing on hard surfaces.
When used separately the Intercoat-Clear dries to a flat, hard and level/smooth surface perfect for taping and masking onto with reduced chance of under-spray.
Mix 10% Hobbynox Intercoat-Clear or more with Hobbynox Airbrush Colors. Leveling/smoothness and airbrush flow on non-porous surfaces is greatly increased. Airbrush Colors dry hard and durable quickly when mixed with Intercoat Clear.
Intercoat-Clear also serves as an adhesion promoter (for painting hard surfaces) when mixed with Hobbynox Airbrush Colors.
Intercoat-Clear is not a paint reducer and it does not thin the paint. For paint viscosity reduction - use Hobbynox SP Reducer/Cleaner.
Use the Intercoat-Clear mixed Airbrush Colors within 6 hours. Keep colors capped airtight after use.
