Help with Vallejo colours

Discussion in 'Acrylics' started by Dekiman, Dec 30, 2015.

    So far i used to paint my figures with Citadel Colours (they where the only one that I can get in Serbia)
    but they are a bit shiny.
    Now i can buy a Vallejo range of colours but I never used them before.
    What range of their collours as best for the figures?

    i think imho that it doesn't matter the range they can all carry over to any subject . being new to the av also i can tell you to mix the colors well . and use the av auxiliary products as well .

    If I can think of any caution with Vallejo paints, it's that they have a Prussian blue that tends to dry/cure to a shiny finish. I can't remember the catalog number off-hand, but it's not in the airbrush series.

    Prost!

    Hi
    I have found putting a drop or two of Vallejo matt varnish in the mix
    It also works for citadels
