For the best results when diluting for use with an airbrush, we recommend using Lifecolor Thinner, but water can also be used.

To use Lifecolor paints:
1. Clean surfaces to be painted
2. For airbrushing, dilute the colour to a milky consistency using water or LifeColor Thinner.
3. Airbrush at very low pressures.
4. Apply colour in thin coats with a brush or airbrush
5. Allow to dry completely between coats
6. Clean your airbrush with airbrush cleaner and flush through with water
