These 9 shades form the basis of the ready-to-use colors for artistic airbrush painting, but also for all disciplines of drawing, pen and liquid acrylics (of course these colors are not comparable with watercolors, as they are very intense, concentrated, and covering.
The 9 colors are very bright, they are totally resistant to sunlight.
As they are ready to use, they can be used pure, immediately.
It is also possible to dilute them with water : their very strong pigmentation makes it possible to tolerate a high percentage of dilution, which makes it possible to refine the stroke, to achieve details with the finest airbrushes.
Easy to measure out, precise color formulas
One of the special features of Aero Color inks is that they are packaged in glass bottles with a measuring pipette, which makes it very easy to measure out each color to the nearest drop (each drop is always equal and represents a measure of approximately 0.03g or 0.03ml).
It's easy to create these recipes and shade formulas, without weighing them, just counting the drops.
Thanks to the high quality of Schmincke pigments, their homogeneity and perfect dispersion despite the high liquidity of the colors, the mixtures are always perfect and the colors are sumptuous.
By mixing the shades with each other, a rich range of colors can be achieved.
