Thinning paint for airbrushing in elevated temps
Posted by Anonymous on Monday, June 30, 2003 10:10 PM
I live in Phx, AZ and the temperature outside normally exceeds 105+ in the summer. I have to paint my models outside in the garage where those temps can exceed 120 at times.

I painted last night and ended up with the paint drying almost as it landed on the model. I can fix that with some color sanding.

Would you thin the paint much more than usual so that it is "wet" when it lands on the model and takes a minute or two to dry?

If so, which I suspect is needed, how would this affect the color fastness of the paint so long as it is kept from uv light sources?
