Citadel Dry Paint, a perfect match to a color I need.. BUT!!

Post by DarKev » Sun Oct 09, 2016 5:19 pm

Hello Folks

Okay I was searching for a color in the paint racks of my LHS and well surprisingly Citadel has the color I'm looking for "BUT"it is in their "DRY" line of game (Miniature RPG I assume) colors!!! Since I was hoping to airbrush on the color I want for this "Anime" model kit I was wondering what one has to do to turn this dry paint into something I can use!!! Any Help and/or Suggestions would be GREATLY Appreciated!!!

Why would one buy a "NEW" Multi_Million Dollar Management Information System that can't do processes that the old system did correctly?? Answer - Someone in Upper Level Administration got a "GIFT" (Unknown Author)

Word is that acrylic reducer will work. Get ready to mix and mix though to get it from the jelly it starts out as to something you can brush or airbrush with. And I would definitely strain it if you're going to airbrush.

From what I have read, they are intended for dry-brushing over a base coat to add highlights. But if they are the same formula as their other paints, you should be able to thin them with the same type of thinner used by their other paints. One user reports thinning it for airbrushing with an acrylic reducer or flow extender.
