Klear question?


Recommended Posts

Just a quicky, can you thin klear with water? Don’t want to commit to model if it may ruin it, looking to seal Vallejo air silver and aluminium.

I used to (in an effort to make the Klear last longer). It works, but I found the finish not as smooth as undiluted and it's easier to cause runs and pooling with thinned Klear. I far prefer straight from the bottle now.

If you are airbrushing I believe you can add a little of an ammonia based window cleaner (Windowlene works - the clear blue stuff) - I understand that helps the flow. However I tend to apply it undiluted using a wide flat brush and then clean the brush using Windowlene. Applying by brush works fine. Don't overload the brush and if there is any pooling use a corner of some kitchen towel to soak it up. And I don't need to clean the airbrush 😉
