The acrylic-based sets can be used individually, mixed with other paints from its growing range and be applied by brush, airbrush or a combination of techniques, from cotton buds, to lining pens.
Lifecolor recommends diluting its colours with water, and applying to the model with a paintbrush or airbrush. When the paint is dry, the surface can be wetted, to apply the liquid pigments to achieve the desired result. Each application should be left to dry before repeating. Washes can be removed or changed using its remover, even days after the application.
The dry powders included can be used to texture the paint, creating a more realistic surface appearance, and it is recommended to use a fixative, keeping them in place, if the model is to be handled.
