Mission Models Thinner is a powerful acrylic non-solvent based reducer. Only the smallest amount of Mission Models thinner is needed when reducing Mission Models Paint and Primer.
Mission Models Polyurethane Intermix is an acrylic non-solvent based paint additive. After reducing your paint with Mission Models Thinner add one or two drops of Mission Models Polyurethane. Less is more! Mission Models Poly will increase flow from the airbrush, slower drying times, added blending times for fine brush painting, durability and increased leveling properties. In addition you will find a durable finish with a slight eggshell finish which is perfect for washes eliminating the need for further clear coating.
If you add too much Poly to your paint you will find that your paint will pull from the surface and away from raised details, beading etc... If by chance you add too much Poly be patient. It will dry and auto level.
Mission Models Paint is very easy to use. Mission Models recommends thinning to the following ratio for the best performance. Below are some basic examples. For best performance please follow Mission Models carefully researched ratios.

PSI 10 , 15 , 20 depending on your needs.
