I want to use transparant color (enamel paint from Revell) for coloring a clear-plastic part. What's the best way to use that color? When I use it with a brush, the paint just flows into the corner and then there's nearly no paint in the middle of the part.
Is it possible to airbrush those colors?

look at my homepage:
The clear colors can be used in a couple of ways. On bare plastic they can be thin, and it can take multiple coats. They can be airbrushed. No different than any other enamel. Tamiya and Testors make clears, as do Humbrol as well.
They work best over other paints. I use, for example, clear red and clear orange to do reflector and tail lights. For orange, I base coat in Gold, and then apply a few layers of orange. For the red, I use a silver base.
A mix of Tamiya Clear Smoke and Clear Orange is great over Brass metal shells or Brass painted shells. Its good for oil stains too.
