I was watching a TV regime the other day that said if friend want repaint to have actually a dead level appearance mix in a tiny corn starch. I tried the on my acrylic paint and lo and also behold the repaint was flat. You need to dissolve the corn starch in a tiny water (acrylic paint) climate mix that in with the continual acrylic. No problems going thru mine airbrush. Tried the on enamels and it works also. You have to experiment through the amount but it appears that 8 parts repaint to 1 component corn starch is just about right. You may need to experiment the proportion for yourself. Ns was really dubious. Ns work exclusively with hobby craft acrylic repaint on mine armor and also aircraft. Lock usually have a slim sheen but with corn strength it disappears. The corn starch appears to also assist the acrylic craft repaint to spray an ext evenly and stick steady to a prepared surface.. Offer it a try.

Any idea what the long-term impacts are from adding that come the paint? I'd hate to shot that and also 1 year under the road have it gain funky and also start doing monster things...

Airbrushing I have never had any kind of issues with level paints no being Flat- Acrylic or Enamel. Sounds favor an unnecessary step and potential for troubles down the road favor Dre mentions.

Sounds prefer it might be precious trying ~ above a donor piece and letting that sit on the shelf because that a while to view what happens. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

When I very first began modeling there to be no flat modeling paints. The method in those days to be to include talcum flour to the dope. Talcum is nice inert, so must not have any long term consequences. Never ever tried come airbrush talcum-laced dope though.
