As to the OP, I have had decent luck thinning my vallejo paints (ultramarine blue and stormy blue) with about 2:5 water to paint. Someone might also mention windex, don't do that either. Automatically Appended Next Post: Also, you should prime first.
Paint still gets back up the needle bore hole, and has to be cleaned out, but I've found, if I remove the needle, and then spray first Windex, and then soapy water into the bore from the needle locking nut end, it gets most of that paint loose enough to be removed by running the needle back and forth a few times down the bore backwards, carefully, so I don't scratch the bore. Ammonia is what you use to clean the acrylic. I have used just about every thinning agent out there - (water, distilled water, flow aid, windex, taymia acrylic thinner, hobbyco acrylic thinner, airbrush medium, etc.). Thinning Acrylic Paints for Airbrush. The best way to actually thin Vallejo paint is to use their own Airbrush Thinner. In my experience, Windex eats Tamiya acrylic paint. I can say, just buy some airbrush medium. I'm wondering what makes Windex so special?
I agree with all who praise Tamiya Acrylics. ( example sing 70.879 green brown vallejo model color @20psi i use 10 drops of paint to 7 or 8 drops of vallejo airbrush thinner ( substitues for the thinner are windex/water mix or plain water (side note FYI the vallejo airbrush thinner is in fact windex just smell it sometime LOL), while when using model color 70.979 german cam dark green the drop ratio of thinner to pigment is different. Windex? I routinely use Windex to clean my airbrush, paint brushes and, if necessary, acrylic paint from a model. Does the blue tint of Windex cause color shifts? Windex (with ammonia) is an airbrush cleaner. "Tamiya's" website did not carry any paint thinner though it was advertised that they did.
Again, will weaken paint. I have also seen posts online where people recommend thinning their paint with Windex, or cleaning their airbrush with it. Regards, Michael D Esplanade (v.), to attempt an explanation while drunk. Primer creates the base upon which your regular paint will adhere.
THINNING PAINT FOR AIRBRUSHING The question "What is the exact thinning ratio when using XYZ paint in an airbrush", or some derivative thereof, comes up frequently so I thought I'd try and provide a comprehensive answer once and for all.
... (a drop of Liquitex Flow Aid or a few drops of Windex in my paint cup helps). Short Answer Number 1 - There is no such thing as an exact thinning ratio for any paint. In fact when you spray Future you're supposed to use Windex (with ammonia) for the express purpose of cleaning the airbrush. it's not recommended to thin acrylic paint with it. Use alcohol for thinning arcylics. Really? I haven't tried using airbrush medium or flow aids yet.
Just got some "Tamiya" acrylic airbrush paint for painting plastic models.
Is there a better product to use besides Windex… 25% Thinner to 75% paint (1 part thinner 3 parts paint) is a good starting point for a standard base coat.
