Xtracolor and dust...

Recommended Posts

Decided to try out some of the Xtracolor enamels (they have good color matches). After searching around ARC their seems to be an "issue" of the paint taking a long time to dry. This isn't the problem however.

For those of you who've had experience with or use Xtracolor (or any slow drying gloss I guess) do you cover your models up while they dry to stop dust etc. settling on them? Does dust etc. actually present a problem?

Try thinning them with cellulose/laquer thinner, they dry much quicker. (Don't flood the surface of the plastic with too much of this mixture though, cellulose/laquer thinner attacks it if used too heavily).

When airbrushing with extra color I put the model in a clean "smart box", tose plastic containers that have a clip-on lid, that way dust i keept out when it is drying, i take a little bit longer to dry, but is worth the nice clean paintjob
