Vallejo Model Color is a range of 218 acrylic colors, very highly pigmented, and formulated for use on models and miniatures. Vallejo Model Color is perfect for use on all surfaces, and especially formulated to adhere to metals, plastics and resins.
 
The Vallejo Model Color range also contains an extensive assortment of mediums and varnishes, designed for Miniature and Model painting. The colors have been chosen with the help and advice of the best model painters from many countries. Those colors which have corresponding Federal Standard, Ral and RLM equivalencies are clearly identified.

Vallejo Model Colors have been formulated with the same permanent pigments used in fine arts; all colors are completely light fast and opaque, (with the exception of the fluorescent and transparent colors, which are semi-opaque). 8 metallic pigments (in an alcohol base) are included in the range, since these give a harder brilliance than water based metallic colors.

The consistency of Vallejo Model Color allows for an extremely smooth and uniform paint layer, with no trace of brushstrokes. Professional model painters always work with a wet brush and dilute the paint with water or Mat Medium, applying many thin layers to achieve depth and shadows. Colors may also be diluted with other Model Color Mediums for glazes and layered applications.

The water based formula of Vallejo Model Color has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is non toxic, non flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. Errors can be corrected immediately with water or alcohol.  Model Color paints dry quickly to a matte, even and waterproof finish. Exact drying time depends on the temperature and humidity of the environment, on the surface which has been painted, and on the thickness of the paint layer - although the colors are dry to the touch within minutes, the water content keeps on evaporating, and the paint does not acquire its true permanence until several weeks after application.

Vallejo Model Color Paints are sold in a 17 ml. bottle with an eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container and the eyedropper makes measuring and mixing colors a breeze.  The 8 Metallic colors that are alcohol based are presented in childproof bottles of 35 ml.  Mediums, Metallic Colors, Box Sets and more -- You can check out all of the Vallejo Model Color Paints below!
