Acrylic Washes


Reproducing the weathering of surfaces exposed to harsh climatic conditions is difficult to achieve and these washes offer the perfect solution.

For armor, vehicles, aircraft, helicopters, ships, figures, and war game figures. All surfaces exposed to sun, wind, dust, rain, and snow, experience a change in color, a loss of intensity. Over time and exposure to the elements, paint dulls and fades, but this weathering isnot even over every suface area.

For the model painter these changes in color are very difficult to reproduce. To achieve these effects on a model, washes or filters are the perfect solution.

The washes are always needed to blend the edges of the colors on a model painted in various camouflage shades. The colors can also be mixed together to achieve further variations of shade and can be used with airbrush or brush, according to the model and the effect desired.

Model Wash can be mixed with pigments to achieve a wide range of effects such as oil and flaked rust, mud, earth, dust, moss, etc. and when mixed with acrylic colors, they further help achieve the impact of heavy wear and weathering. The washes have been formulated with a modified acrylic resin so that the superficial tension is similar to that of the traditional solvent-based washes and filters, but with the advantage of working with a water-based medium.

Average drying time is around 20 minutes. If several layers of wash are to be applied, it is best to wait around 40 minutes between applications. Painting tools are cleaned with water.
