Vallejo Paints a range of 218 acrylic colours, which are extremely highly pigmented, developed for models and miniatures. Model Colour is indicated for all surfaces, and particularly formulated to stick to plastics and metals.
The Model colour range contains 218 colours and has an comprehensive assortment of mediums and varnishes, designed particularly for Miniature and Model painting. The colours have been selected with the help and advice of the best model painters from around the world. Model Colour has been developed with permanent pigments for modellers, all colours are entirely lightfast and opaque, with the exception of the fluorescent and transparent colours, which are semi opaque). A few metallic pigments (in an alcohol base) are included in the range, since these give a harder brilliance than the water-based metallic.
The consistency of Model Colour provides an exceedingly smooth and uniform paint film, with no trace of brush strokes. Professional model painters always work with a wet brush and dilute the paint with water or Mat Medium, applying many thin layers to achieve depth and shadows. Colours may also be diluted with other Mediums for glazes and layered applications.
The water based formula of Model Colour has been specifically formulated for adhesion on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is nonflammable, nontoxic, and does not give off harmful or noxious fumes. Mistakes can be corrected straightaway with water or alcohol Model Colour dries quickly to a matte, even and waterproof finish. Exact drying time depends on the temperature and humidity of the surroundings, on the surface which has been painted, and on the thickness of the paint layer whilst the colours are dry to the touch within minutes, the water content keeps on vaporising, and the paint doesn't acquire its true permanency until several weeks after covering.
Vallejo Game Colour
Game colour is a special selection of fine water based acrylic colours manufactured with a special resin and permanent pigments for miniatures figures in fantasy and war games.
This compact range has been especially developed to contain all the frequently used colours in fantasy figures, in a formula particularly designed for adherence on plastics and metals, using a new resin of unequalled durability and resistance to scrapes and abrasion. Colours brush on easily and smoothly, and dry to an opaque, matte finish. Their finely ground texture makes them perfect for the most miniature details as well as for large surfaces. They are highly pigmented, light fast and waterproof once dry. Errors can be corrected immediately with water or a small amount of alcohol.
16 highly pigmented acrylic colours formulated to provide an especially mat and opaque coating which covers all primers and base colours in one application.
Washes & Inks
The Washes and Inks, developed with a new resin, are used for shadows and for the application of colours in layers. When applied over a base coat, they enter into the folds and grooves of the figure, and instantly brings forth the features. They can also be mixed with the regular colours, or with the Mediums.
