What is the difference between Model Colour, Game Colour, Model Air and Premium?

Vallejo offers four different water-based chemical formulas in these miniature paint ranges, each one created for a particular segment of the hobby market, but all compatible with one another.

Model Colour and Panzer Aces are creamy, highly opaque acrylics formulated principally for brush application: the two ranges total some 246 matte colours and mediums, and 8 brilliant alcohol based metallic colours.

Game Colour has been developed for tabletop games. The range consists of 119 acrylic colours, washes and inks; designed for painting small figures, the formula has a lower viscosity than Model Colour and a resin more resistant to frequent handling. The colours provide opaque coverage without loss of minute detail.

Model Air is a line of 129 colours which have been formulated especially for airbrushing, although they are also frequently used for painting small details with a brush.

These product lines are further augmented with a line of Washes, and a complete assortment of Medium, Varnishes and auxiliary products.

Premium Colour, a new range of 51 colours and 8 auxiliary products, developed with a new hybrid acrylic-polyurethane resin of extreme strength, has been designed principally for use in an Airbrush and for surfaces exposed to handling and exterior conditions.

Can I mix Model Colour with Game Colour and Model Air?

Yes, all Vallejo acrylic colours can be mixed with one another and with Vallejo Mediums and Varnishes.

Can I mix Vallejo acrylic colours with other brands of paint?

Vallejo acrylic colours can be mixed with all water-based acrylics.

Is Model Air to be used only in airbrushes?

Model Air has been formulated especially for use with an airbrush, but it can be applied with a brush, and is especially useful for small details and shading.

Can I apply Model Colour or Game Colour with an airbrush if I dilute them with water or a thinner?

Yes, but it depends on the colours. Please consider that Model Air and Premium have been formulated especially for airbrushing, while some colours in Game and Model Colour are not suitable for being dispersed in the air.
