Response to I have thinned Tamiya acrylic paints for years
Thanks for the information! Actually I still use Tamiya acrylics sometimes and I agree that they're durable enough over plastic, but one of the things that I like about lacquers is that they're also quite strong over metal. In my experience, acrylics peel off very easily over photoetched parts, and I do prefer to apply as few layers of paint as possible, so I'm not much of a fan of priming. Although I haven't tried a clear lacquer overcoat over acrylics. I suppose that might solve that problem!
About the lacquer over acrylic thing, well, the couple of times I tried that it dissolved and mixed with the acrylic undercoat, changing the colors. Although that might be because I always airbrush with Levelling Thinner, therefore with a slower dryin time?
