How are they used?
The formulation of Rail Center paints allows for ease of application using a brush or an airbrush. The acrylic colours dry to the touch after approximately one hour. The exact time will depend on the thickness of the paint layer applied, as well as the humidity and ambient temperature in your work area. We recommend waiting 24 hours for the paint to dry completely. Once dry, Rail Center paints allow for the application of other paints and varnishes, no matter if they are lacquers, enamels or acrylics, as well as all kind of weathering products. In addition, you can safely use modelling masking tapes and decal solutions safely once the acrylic colours are completely dry.
