Spraying Vallejo Acrylics

I was just wondering what Vallejo paints are like to spray. TIA :D

In a word -- superbly. The Vallejo Air variety, in particular, can be thinned in the spray cup, with some distilled water (if you like, mix 50/50 with metho). There is minimal waste, they dry quickly and set hard. Have fun!!

I only use acrylic paints now. Vallejo are by far my favourite paints for spraying. A little bit of water helps and they are in eye dropper bottles dont forget to keep the nozzle clean so no dried paint gets into the airbrush. It helps that my local model shop sells them.

Vallejo air brush pretty well, too. I use the black to do wheels after I spray the hub. They flow nicely out of the brush, and give good coverage.

Ta guys. Guess I'll be buying some soon. Just wish the LHS would stock them.
