I always try to avoid handbrushing of Tamiya acrylics because those are drying extremely fast, which is a thing not good for brushes. That`s why I always use Games Workshops colors for doing so.

But if you really want to use Tamiya colors for that purpose you should thin them with dilluted alcohol or simply water to slow down the drying a bit.

Good luck!

I thin them down slightly w/ Tamiya thinner or alcohol, the key is brush once or twice and stop, don't overbrush the same area or it will gum up on you.

I've always had good experiences with the Tamiya acrylics, with the exception of their chrome silver color. Unlike crapple barrel or even model master acrylics, the Tamiya acrylics provide great coverage, even when painted with a brush.

I always airbrush Tamiya and Model Master acrylics. If I need to hand brush I use Gunze Sangyo or Games Workshop as those are designed for being brushed.
