Has anyone ever tried to thin and spray Delta Ceramcoat?
Ditto. I will occasionally add a drop or two of rubbing alcohol to the thinned paint to act as a whetting agent to help prevent it from beading up. Also helps it to dry a little faster.All the time. All you have to do is thin them with water. Don’t try to thin them with anything else, results won’t be good. The trick is to get the right consistency to pass through the air brush. It’s also a good idea to have an airbrush bottle filled with rubbing alcohol to run through the airbrush after spraying the paint which will help keep the brush from clogging.
Unless I looked in the wrong place (around the paint racks) I've never seen "Delta Acrylic Thinner" or any other brand of craft paint thinner. I've looked in Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Walmart, and Joanns.Great! Thanks guys!
I hadn't expected to get such a fast email response from Delta Creative. They answered within an hour of my email: "Using Delta Acrylic Thinner with Ceramcoat Acrylic is ideal for airbrushing. To use, mix equal parts of Delta Acrylic Thinner & Ceramcoat Acrylic Paint . Add additional Thinner until desired consistency is achieved".
What paint/Future ratio did you use? 50/50?I experimented a few years back and thinned them with window washer solvent. I sprayed them through a Paasche H3 airbrush. They continually clogged the brush so I would have to backflush to get it going again. The results were okay but I found the paint scratched off the model kit if I was not careful. I shelved the idea to use craft paints. Then one day a guy in my model club brought in a beautifully finished F-4 Phantom. He used craft paint but here is the secret. He thinned it with Future.
So I tried it on a Car kit. Mixed up some Apple Barrel with Future and it shot like a dream. The finish was exceptional and the Future gave it durability so it would not scratch off. To be honest it turned out to be one of the best gloss coats I ever achieved on a car kit!!!
So just one thinner IMO. Future which is now labeled Pledge Acrylic Floor Polish with Future Shine. The only thing is that it will be a gloss finish so if you need it flat you will have to clear coat it with a flat clear.
