Model kits make great gifts - no matter if you are young or old !







These are Vallejo acrylic eyedropper paints.

These are true acrylics, meaning they can be washed up with water and be thinned with water.

There are several companies that make acrylic paints, one of the most popular being Vallejo.

Vallejo acrylic paints dry with a matte finish - unless specified otherwise.


These paints can be used with a paint brush or with an airbrush. Vallejo makes paints specifically for an airbrush, ready to go out of the bottle as an alternative. But these can be thinned (if needed) and used with an air brush.

It's always a good idea to shoot a layer of finish (matte, satin, or gloss) over the model because the paint can easily rub off, just with simple handling. Sealing the paint with an overcoat layer can help prevent this.

If you plan on thinning the paints with water, it should be Distilled water. You can get a gallon of distilled water at a grocery store for around $ 1.00. It's very inexpensive. The jug will say Distilled right on it. You want to use a water with NO chemicals or minerals in it. Those can contaminate the paint. Normal tap water includes those and rust so it's best to avoid using using that.

Vallejo Game Color Paints


Game Color paints are specifically designed for brush work, on fantasy figures, but can be used on other models as well.

Vallejo recommends their paints to be used over their primers.

The washes and inks, developed with a new resin, are used for shadows and for the application of colors in layers.

When applied over a basecoat, they enter into the folds and grooves of the figure 9or ay other model), instantly bringing forth the features and adding shade to recessed areas.

They can also be used for weathering. Inks and Washes can be mixed with Game Color paints and mediums.




Vallejo Metal Color Paints



Metal Color is an innovative range of metallic colors formulated with aluminium pigments in a water-based formula.

Metal Color can be applied directly to the model with an airbrush, or diluted with our Airbrush Thinner or Flow Improver, dries very rapidly and forms a self-leveling and homogenous paint film of extraordinary resistance while preserving even the smallest detail of the model.

Metal Color can also be applied by brush.





Vallejo Liquid Gold Paints


Liquid Gold paints are an exception to the rule. The are ALCOHOL based acrylic paints (like Tamiya and others). Metallic colors for figures and other model kits.

Shiny metallic colors manufactured with actual metal pigments in an alcohol based formula resulting in a metallic finish of extraordinary realism and permanence.

The colors can be diluted with alcohol or mixed with one another to achieve further variations of tonality and dry rapidly on all kind of surfaces.

Brushes are cleaned with alcohol or with Brush Cleaner. Liquid Gold is flammable due to its alcohol content, but does not contain xylene or toluene.
