Is Mr. Color suitable to paint details?

Post by edi.. » Tue, 11 Sep 2001 12:23:57



Hi, is Mr. Color suitable to paint anime details such as eyes and other sorts
of detailing? Ive found it too thick to paint eye details and highlight parts.
if you thinned it, if will flows out of the raised parts. Since Model sage Mr.
Moschini is supplying Mr. colors paint to modelers out there, i presume more
people will have more experience with this type of paints and what they are
capable of.

Regards

Mr. Color can be used to paint details.  It seems to me that you haven't
found the right ratio for your painting style, but once you do, it
should work.  When you paint the border (i.e.. outline) of pupil for
example, you don't want to thin it too much, so that it doesn't run, and
a smooth stroke of brush can draw a sharp line.  Then, when you paint
the inside, you want it to be a little thinner, so that you can apply
paint evenly.  Painting an eye is like drawing many ((( and ))) in a
sense.  Then fill in-betweens.

Hiroaki,

Thanks for commenting on this subject!

I had thought the problem Edison was having was either too much thinner, or not enough, but I wanted to hear it confirmed with a
different source before I commented on it..

Edison,

Try taking 6-8 drops of paint, and add 1-2 drops of thinner for hand-brushing. Add more paint or thinner as necessary.

Other things that can help:

Mr. Retarder Mild - slows down the drying process.
Mr. Color Leveling Thinner - thinner with Retarder Mild mixed in. Comes in a small 110ml bottle or a huge 400ml bottle.

Of course, I don't have either of those items in stock yet, so you'll have to get them from Japan if you want them, sorry!

-Giuliano
