Default Parma paints

I'm just about to use Parma paint through my airbrush, I need to know if i need to thin it and if I do what should I use (laquer thinner, water, etc.)

If you're talking about Parma Faskolor, there's no need to thin it. If you still want to thin it, maybe it's clogging the airbrush, you can using about one part water or airbrush media (or reducer, different companies, different names). Spray Faskolor around 40 psi and you should get good results.

Also, there is a Painting forum on RCTech and this question as well as many other "painting" type questions are answered there. Check it out, the guys and girls there are very helpful.

Good Luck

i thin with rubbing alcohol or windex. from my experience, the only need to thin is the metallic blue from faskolor. and 40psi might be alittle bit high.

Actually Faswhite can be very thick and clog brushes very easy.

This is a quote from the Faskolor website, "You will need 40 to 70 pounds of air pressure a medium to large nozzle".


If you are talking about Pactra, then 40psi would be high but, I've been using Faskolor paint, which is actually the same as Createx, for about 15 years and 40psi is just about perfect for that type of paint.
