    Re: Paint/Topcoat Thread. This is where to ask questions. NOT new threads.

    Hey guys, I'd like to paint my kits but I'm not sure what paints I need to mix in order to achieve a certain color. Like say I wanted to paint my kit salmon red( y'know, Char's colors), what paints would I need to mix in order to get that color? Is there a color theory I need to know?

    If your trying to paint a kit Char's color you can look up the paint ratio to get the same color pink.

    I meant what colors do I mix to get a certain color using Tamiya acrylics. I meant to ask that because that's the only brand I have access to(I don't use Testors because they have less paint per bottle). I should've clarified that earlier.

    This is going to sound absolutely bizarre, but does glass paint have any application in Gunpla? Can it even be airbrushed?

    Most glass paints can be airbrushed once suitably thinned. Not sure of the application in Gunpla, but hey why not.

    Its not bizarre at all. I uses glass paints on my gundams. The brand i use is call Marabu glasArt. Cant answer 2nd part of the question tho, I hand paint my gundams.
