In this review I applied these paints to untreated wood models. Mainly I applied these paints with brushes although I used an airbrush to spray the base coat upon the roof. Airbrushing did not require thinning. LifeColor paints demonstrated in previous reviews have performed very well through my airbrush. (For another review of these paints, please see White Wood on Aeroscale
I shot two sets of photos of the large wooden shed. (See Click here for additional images for this review
, below, for its review.) Those with a blue background were shot under sunlight-corrected light while those shoot with a natural background were shot in sunlight.
These are printed on the back of the box. The English and Italian text is very fine and challenging to read.
set is a versatile set that affords railway modelers another set of tools for painting distressed wood.
These paints are easy to use and perform very well when applied by brush and sponge.
I am happy with the results I achieved with them. I will recommend this set for modelers of white wooden structures who do not want them to look lily white.
