Tamiya Acrylic Paint Question

08-08-2004, 12:46 PM
I have always brush painted with enamels, but have recently decided to try Tamiya's Acrylic paints to brush with. I have had nothing but problems. The paint dries so fast I have a terrible finish with several brush strokes and rough areas. Do I need to thin this paint out before brushing with it? If so, what should I use to thin the paint?

Try applying the paint in thinner layers and not brushing over areas you recently brushed, allow each coat to dry before applying the next.

I brush on Tamiya acrylics all the tine without any problems.

Tamiya acrylics are mainly for airbrush use, but do what freakray said, it does work

all i use is tamiya acrylics for brush painting. i find they go on really smooth. no need to thin the paint it is fairly thin to start with. i suggest just using a nice soft brush
