    AK Interactive Air Series paints

    Arachiac Hopefully my recommendations were useful and you are able to spray the paints easily. One recommendation I forgot to add in: Get yourself a bottle of Vallejo paint flow improver. This thing is worth its weight in gold for both Vallejo, AK, and Ammo paints. Since all three manufactures use the same paint ingredients, it works well with those brands. A drop or two, and you won't need the thinner or retarder. It is now my primary go to when I want to airbrush. I will post pictures later of how effective it is. Khumar

    AK Interactive Air Series paints

    Taylor Sorry to hear about your issues with AK paint. I switched over to AK a short while ago and have the Modern Aircraft set. Here are some steps that might help resolve the issue. These solutions apply to Ammo of Mig acrylic paints and Vallejo Model Air Acrylics as well. 1) Shake the bottle vigorously! If the paint is not properly mixed, it will not spray well. I purchased the bottle of steel paint ball stirs that you can add into AK bottles, Ammo bottles, and Vallejo bottles. This helps shake and mix the paint. (Another thing that really helps to mix the AK paints is the automatic paint mixer by Badger Airbrush. This is the best tool for mixing AK, Ammo, or Vallejo paint) 2) The paints in the Modern Aircraft set are meant to be airbrushed. So they are pre-thinned. Start off at 20 psi and see how that works. (After making damn sure the paints are mixed) 3) Now if things are not working, add in a drop or two of thinner. At this point back flush your airbrush (Let me know if you don't know what back flushing is). You want to see bubbles like those in chocolate milk. Once you see that you can increase pressure a bit to get fine lines, decrease pressure to get soft paint coverage and build it up. 4) AK paints really work best around 15 to 25 psi range. If you're having to go up to 30 psi...something is wrong. 5) Ensure your airbrush is clean and working properly. Use water with some food coloring and see how the spray pattern looks at 20psi. 6)DO NOT use non AK thinner with AK paints. I also recommend getting the paint retarder as AK paints dry on the tip very very quickly.
