Tamiya X-20A acrylic thinner is the perfect choice to thin Tamiya acrylic paint when spraying through an airbrush or cleaning bristle brushes. The formula within the thinner gives Tamiya acrylic paints the right consistency to blend colours without fading or spotting.
Although water can be used to thin acrylic paints, reducing, transparencies, controlled finishes, and layering effects are best achieved using appropriate thinners because there is a science behind it, so we suggest manufacturer thinners for the best results. Ideal for thinning acrylics for fine brush work on miniatures and figures.
Use Tamiya Paint Retarder up to a ratio of 1:10 for a smother finish, lessening the chance of paint dust creating a grainy surface.
Our award winning scale modellers recommend the manufacturer’s products for best results to avoid unexpected results. Solutions are formulated to work with intended products. There is science behind it.
