Hi Guys needed a little help in this as i am getting frustrated in mixing the metallic paints cause when i think it's looks thinned enough it will clog the AB and when i put too much i get frosting issue....with my MG Guntank which i was lucky enough to Finish with metallic paints i thought i had the ratio down....but it seems when i started with a new Project i'm back to Square one.....so if you guys have a link or video for me to watch on how to mix Mr Hobby Mr Color Metallic paints to thinner ratio it would really help . Thank you
normally putting too much thinner will not result in frosting issue. It's mainly due to the way to spray.
i use super metallic most of the time. usually my solution is almost as thin as thinner or water itself. i prefer spray it with extra thin.
As for ratio,...... dont even believe that. different bottle of paint, based on the characteristic n age, needs different amount of thinner. Always pay attention to how dilute the paint is when it goes into your hand piece cup. If u r still having this ratio thing in mind, it might gives u problem. because u r focusing on the ratio which by right, u should be paying most of the focus on the solution in your ab cup and the result u spray.
A real tip: use plastic spoon to practise n experiment before u slam your paint onto your model kit.
