    Tamiya and aqueous compatibility?

    So long story short - recently found a place that sells Tamiya arcylics. Yay. Anime store that I'm loyal to becuaee they have build gatherings, competitions, and gundam skirmish battles, just this week started stocking this aqueous brand. It looks to be by Mr.Hobby. I know the two paints are acrylic but I've read Tamiya has some degree of lacquer in it. I don't wsnt to rebuy a all the paints I just recently picked up so does anyone know if these are mixable?

    They're water based acrylics.

    I thought Mr.Color was a lacquer/ enamel? They are water based acrylics! Because my New hobby shop. (my old one just closed ) carries a ton of Mr. Color but I don't use much enamels or Lacquers. That might change.

    That looks like a no.

    Also I see the mistake I did. NORMAL Mr. Color is enamel the Aqwueous is the water acrylics. Cool got it.

    Mr. Hobby is name of the tool company.

    Mr. Color is lacquer paint. Aqueous is water based acrylic. It has been upgraded to the Acrysion line.
    You can thin the Aqueous paint with water, but its always best to use the thinner from the company for the best thinning/finish.
