Enamel thinners are used to dilute our Humbrol solvent based enamel paints, most commonly for airbrushing. Also best for solvent for cleaning brushes.
If the thinner is mixed with Humbrol enamel paints then they will apply to a wide range of surfaces including most plastics, wood, glass, ceramics, metal, cardboard, sealed plaster, sealed hardboard and more (always try on a small test area to check suitability)
Brush straight from the tin. Airbrush with a suitable thinner such as Humbrol Enamel Thinners. Two thin coats are preferable to one thick coat. The usual thinning ratio is 2 parts paint to 1 part thinner. Note that Metalcote colours are designed to be polished when fully dry.
Enamel paint drying times are as follows: Gloss - 1-2 hours; Matt & Satin - 20-40 mins touch dry and up to 24 hours hard dry; Metallics - hard dry in approx. 10 days. Drying times will vary according to ambient temperature and humidity. Recoat: 6 hours minimum (preferably overnight).
