Just weathered a couple of Locos for a friend using the Golden Titan Buff and Vallejo thinners thanks again to Tom.

Are the Golden line of paints true acrylics or are they hazardous to spray without a paint both and respirator?

Threw golem?  You might want to check your auto-correct settings.

I wouldn't paint any brand without a booth-the over spray would be everywhere.

I'm not a monster after all.

Tom, thank you for putting the pictures back in this thread, very appreciated.

But Tom didn't upload them to the Railwire, so they might disappear again in the future!  :trollface:

Just kidding - I know  :tommann: wouldn't be so cruel  to use an unreliable photo host.

And on a serious note - thanks Tom for bringing the photos back to this thread.

One way to avoid needing a perfect fine mist with an airbrush is to use clear coat as the base and mix in your tints. Then you can spray full coats instead of having to mist on paint.

While I used to be able to fog on Floquil for weathering, the move to heavier acrylics necessitated and move to clear coat base with tints instead of just thinning paint down.
