I will not be getting anymore paints due to slow sales and the new export laws. Once the paints shown in stock are sold, that will be it. Sorry!.

Finishers paint general instructions

Below is the best translation I can make of finishers descriptions, usage and instructions.  I suggest testing on something other than you model first.  Do not hold me responsible for these instructions.

#27 - Foundation White: For general base, 2 to 3 coats should be good for covering the material color.

#18 - Foundation Pink: Good foundation for red finish like Ferrari.

#14 - Foundation Cream: Good foundation for multiple paint finish when painted layer upon layer, like: White, Yellow, Ivory and Jaguar Green.

Foundation Blue: Good foundation for silver to recreate metal.

Foundation Gray: Do not use for a resin or metal kit primer as there is no putty compound in it.  Can be used as a smooth surfacer.
