  • Mr. Color is lacquer based.

    Mr. Hobby is acrylic.

    I’ve used Mr. Color for several years, love it, and have had good results both with and without primer. When I use I primer, I use Mr. Surfacer 1000.

    You can dilute for airbrushing using Mr. Color thinner.

    Be careful when airbrushing Mr. Color, though. Fumes can get quite potent. I highly recommend using a respirator when painting.

    and make sure you get a filter for organic vapors.
