So uh... not sure where to post this... but I found a whole bunch of my old paints, and they are unfortunately all dry-ish.
Are citadel paints the sort that can be rescued by adding more water?
Please assist >.>
Yes. The GW Paints range is Water based. All you need to do is get a few drops in and shake it really well. Putting small metal balls into the pot and then shaking helps mix the paint and water better, but it is not really needed if you shake well.
Also, generally once a month (in the temperate zones, once every week in the desert) you need to add water to the paint to keep it alive.
Also remember that your paints should not be thick, if they are then they are still not watered down enough. You'll see when the paints are thick and when they are not.
Hope that helped
Very much so my friend.
Since I have this thread already, could anyone point me to a tut or such on how to strip models of their current paint scheme. I see it mentioned from time to time and I have some second hand models I would like to repaint.
I'm not sure what you can get in South Korea to be honest, but I know that a lot of people in the USA use Simple Green and in the UK Dettol.
Both products generally loosen the paint after submerging the models in the liquid for a day or two. After a bit of scrubbing with a tooth brush or similar things most of the paint should come off quite easily.
Here are two tutorials: UK guide, US Guide
Hope that helps,
Thank you very much once more. =D
