Airbrush cleaner medium for Mr. Color

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Last night I used Mr. Color for the first time and I really like the paint. However using its thinner to clean the AB is hardly economical. The thinner smells pretty like acetone and I would like to know what you use to clean the AB after use? Regular thinner, acetone? Thanks Dai

Hardware store lacquer thinner is best for cleaning your airbrush.

I do quite lots of AB so I go through cleaning solution very quickly. Dai

Will order some tonight. I have been using Vallejo acrylics so I go through bottles and bottles of alcohol in a short time. Now I start using Mr Color so I need to order some of these. The reviews are pretty good. Dai

While this stuff will certainly clean your airbrush of Mr Color paints, it is rather more expensive than plain old hardware store lacquer thinner. Mr. Tool cleaner goes anywhere from $8 to $18 for a 400ml bottle. Home Depot sells a one gallon container of lacquer thinner for about $14. I rest my case.

Then I will get the lacquer cleaner then. Can't seem to be reasonable to buy 18 bucks per 400 ml to clean AB. Thanks! Dai
