Product FAQ

What working pressure is best for this product?

 

Airbrushing at 20-30 PSI will result in smooth and even layer of varnish. 

Do I need to add airbrush thinner to spray the varnish?

 

No, the varnish is best used out of the bottle, if you have problems spraying please check your equipment and adjust pressure to 20- 30 PSI. If you are using 0.2 or smaller nozzle you may add a bit of VMS Airbrush Thinner 2.0 for acrylics. 

There are air bubbles, is this a problem?

No, air bubbles visible in airbrush cup (result of shaking the bottle prior using the product) are of no consequence and will disappear once you start airbrushing. 

 

What's the drying time?

Varnish will be dry to touch in around 30 minutes, if you force dry (hair dryer, low setting) it can be shortened to several minutes. Dry to touch equals low durability leave the varnish to cure so that it can attain its true potential. This is true for all acrylic products. 

What's the curing time?

3 -5 days equals 75% durability which is enough for you to exercise weathering techniques over such varnish layer. In two weeks varnish will reach 100% durability and maximum protective potential.  

What agent to use to clean my tools after using the varnish?

 

Product is cleaned up very easily. We recommend VMS Airbrush Cleaners Pro acrylic or equivalent.

What is the shelf life of the product?

The shelf life minimum is around 24 months, longer if stored in cool and dark place. Don't store in temperatures below 5 °C or in direct sunlight!
