How to use LifeColor Compact Sets:
- Lightly dilute the acrylic colours with water or LifeColor Thinner and apply on the model with a brush or an airbrush.
- Once the surface is dry, wet the surface with water and apply the Liquid Pigments abundantly until the desired result is achieved. Allow the obtained effect to dry before making other applications.
- All LifeColor Liquid Pigments can be used with a brush or an airbrush, they are ready to use and don’t require dilution.
- It is possible to modulate or remove the washes with the appropriate Liquid Pigments Remover, even days after the application.
- Use LifeColor Dry Powder Pigments with special brushes and with the use of a fixative, mixed with water, solvents and specific mediums, or mixed with paints to obtain a dense mixture to reproduce three-dimensional effects and scraping.
- When using the airbrush, spray at low pressures between 10 – 20 psi. (Iwata airbrushes give the best performance and atomisation at low pressures.)
- Clean your airbrush with LifeColor Cleaner or Medea Airbrush Cleaner and flush through with water
