In order of making oil paint transparent, you can use either Liquin or thinner, but NOT both.

 

Thinners will degrade paint by separating the pigments ( think microscopic specks of colour) from the binder ( think glue which keeps the pigments togethe). The more you add thinner, the weaker your paint layer will become.

Liquin on the other hand is a medium. The pigments are separated BUT stay together because you’re adding more binder. The resulting layer is stronger (tougher) than the thinned paint.

Black is reputedly the most difficult colour to replicate and also to photograph realistically. You’ve done a very respectable job here! :bow:
Now what’s next? Special Hobby X-15 or HPH Tigercat?:P

Thank you very much for the compliments Quang and of course for pushing me to try new techniques ;)

I guess, next up will be to finally finish my PRU pink Spitfire which is a on-off-build for three years now.

The next all black build will maybe be a Do 217 in 1/48 (heresy!) :D
