LifeColor and Tensocrom Paints Review!!!

    In this review I want to present an LifeColor Flesh Paint Set and Tensocrom Medium for washing, wathering and all over solutions you want to do.


    First of all Tensocrom


    Features: The paint is already "diluted", so straight from the can is ready to use. Cnsistency is like wash, or fillter.


    Where to use??
    Tensocroms can be used on panzer models for washing and whatering, but we are figure modelers. We can use this the change and manipulate the color tone by washing the flesh or face. Also is good to blending the boarders between the lights and shadows. Dry totally matt.


    Box informed us that contains six colors for flesh. For first look it looks similar to Andrea Paint Set, but they aren't.




    Box at his back has an simple instruction about painting


    I make on the pallete some samples of flesh paints that offer LifeColor also from the set.


    From the left to right: Matt Flesh , Matt Flesh 2, And from the set flesh base I and flesh base II.


    the bottom colors are tensocrom san and rust


    Fantastic paints for beginners and advanced modelers. 100% water dilutable. Perfect matt finish. Highly pigmented. And very similar to Vallejo and Andrea.

    Damian ,
    Thanks for the reviews , very interesting ..did you find Lifecolour paints any thicker than Vallejo or Andrea ? Like the look of the Tensocrom will keep a look out at the shows .

    Good review Damian as I haven't used these paints before.

    They are not thicker then Vallejo and Andrea, in my opinion the same.

    this is the result of 2 hours of painting with this set. really really easy to obtain good result

    Good I have the Tensochrom already, but have the German Camo set instead, I normally use Vallejo flesh tones which I have, they all compare favourably.(y)

    I just got myself 6 bottles of LifeColor paints to try out today. From the looks of it, it is an EXCELLENT addition to our figure painting arsenal. Cheers !
