Tamiya acrylic mini paints are made from water-soluble acrylic resins and are excellent for either brush painting or air-brushing. These paints can be used on styrol resins, Styrofoam, wood, plus all of the common model plastics. The paint covers well, flows smoothly and can be blended easily. When airbrushing using this paint make sure to use the Tamiya thinners.
The first choice is the X-20A Thinner and the second is the Tamiya Lacquer Thinner. Tamiya X-20A is the easiest to work with as clean-up is simple and less messy for modellers who are new to airbrushing. The paint will dry slower using X-20A which will give modellers more time to work with the paint.
