Amigo, una pregunta:

Do u use VMC with the airbrush? If so what do u use to dilute them?

Gracias :)

the base mix for the anorak consists of Vallejo Park Green Flat and SS Camo Black brown.

I use a few drops of water to dilute the paint first so that it does not separate when I mix it later with the Isopropyl
alcohol. I use alcohol because it atomizes the paint and allows it to dry smoother and faster.

Gracias amigo, that's the way I use it but without diluting first the paint with water ;)
