Metal Color is the innovative range of metallic colors with a water-based formulation, which uses aluminium pigments in its production. The Metal Color range offers a wide range of shades in order to imitate the metallic finish of aircraft of all types and eras. Of exceptional brightness and extraordinary power of reflection, it allows the modeler to carry out the full range of painting techniques without the need to resort to enamels and lacquers. It can be applied directly to the model using an airbrush or diluted with our Airbrush Thinner or Flow Improver. Metal Color dries very quickly, maintaining the smallest details present on the model and forming a homogeneous and self-leveling layer of extraordinary resistance a few hours after application. Metal Color can be tinted directly in the airbrush cup using colors from the Model Air or Game Air ranges. It can also be applied with a brush. Recommended compressor settings for our colors are around 15-20 Psi or 0.5-1 kg. It is advisable, in the case of airframes and aircraft model components, to apply Gloss Black Primer (ref. 73.660), to enhance the special characteristics of the aluminium shades. Metal Color dries very quickly, but it is advisable to wait 12 hours after application before applying any paint masks. For finishing and protecting, Gloss Metal Varnish (ref. 77.657) is recommended. For proper maintenance of the airbrush, we recommend using Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner.

Safety: Metal Color is not flammable, and does not contain solvents.

Packaging: 32 ml/1.08 fl oz bottles with a hinged cap and eyedropper closure. Includes stainless steel stirring ball to improve paint mixing.

DANGER: Wear eye protection / face protection as required. Use in well ventilated area. Keep tightly closed. KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

Chrome, but not as we know it
17 October 2022  | 

Vallejo Metal Color Chrime is super thin, with very fine pigment and covers really well on low-mid air pressure. It will not give that perfect mirrored aspect of real chrome, but it comes close (Alclad is a better option but will stonk your workspace and lungs out). Where Metal Color shines, though, is its versatility: ideal to highlight metal details for some extra pop and super for spotting mail and armour over a base of steel or iron. Brilliant stuff to have in the paintbox. Again, well looked after by the nice people at HobbyMad.
