I have never used MMP or MIG powders before and want to know how to use them. What do you mix with them to spray them with an airbrush? Also how much powder do you put in? Should it be mostly powder and thick like paint or mainly mixing solution with very little powder? I have also wondered about the effects on my airbrush. This stuff will not damage it in any way will it?
I mix MIG pigments with Testors clear flat laquer (the stuff in the big bottle). I thin it maybe 60/40 with more laquer than thinner.
Then i add some small amounts of the MIG pigment until I get the opacity I want. Less pigment means a lighter dusting of the shade, with more coats necessary. More pigments, and you can get enough color to use it about like paint...
On this Start kit of the T-40, I sprayed the pigments on heavy and opaque for an even coverage.
On this Zvezda T-26, the clear flat had only a tiny bit of pigment and a lot of dry pigments were used on top of the initial tinting spray
