You're the Walter White of toy paints, I knew it!!
The crystal ship is flying high !
Again, details as soon as I have it all worked out. So hold tight.
ok.....I have run a lot of v color and soft lately using MIBK Methyl Isobutyl Ketone. You can buy it on ebay no problem. I been buying 1000 ml bottles.
it pretty much works perfectly. much better that the netcrafft thinner...which I think is actually MEK anyways.
the good stuff:

But what about that v-color sofv color? Great info Frank!
should be easily obtainable next month in the USA. watch the skies.
I been living off the enormous hoard of v color and soft v I bought a while back...but its starting to get low so the amazing people that are ging to make it available came in like Batman and saved the day.

Never mind..figured it out. Thanks!
What's the best way to store mixed Vcolor? I tried glass bottles but the thinner dried up and half of the Vcolor is gone.
Glass is best, just re add thinner and it will pep it back up.
Available now at the San Diego Based shop Gunnzo
looks like 23ml for $12.50

Anybody order any v-color from Gunnzo yet? How do you like it? http://gunnzo.com/index.php?main_page=i ... display=32
Just wanted to quickly jump in and thank Rich for this very informative post! That's all... carry on
Just got my glass 2oz bottles with droppers, around 12 different V-Color paints, and i'm on my way to HD to try to find ACETONE, and i just have a question if anyone can help, WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST THINNING RATIO BETWEEN ACETONE AND V-COLOR? Thanks so much
So, after getting no help on the ratio i decided to give it a go and this is what happened.
At first i got the spiderwebs (now i know what those are) but just added a little bit more acetone and got rid of em, then, I decided to try it on a micro eyezon i had lying around somewhere and i really like how the paint works.
I've only used createx wicked colors and Monster Kolor paints but this is nothing like those, it leaves like a flocked texture on the vinyl, so is that the effect you get with this paint? For some reason i thought it was going to be more glossy looking and a lot smoother to the touch, is this the result i should be getting or am i missing something?
Why are you using acetone to thin your paint?
Just got me a steal on a gallon jug of MEK!!!!
you should be using MEK.
acetone can still be used for cleaning your gun out but you might just want to use lacquer thinner for that. acetone is alittle harsher on your gun. i usually just use it for stripping.
I decided to go with acetone for this reason I was kinda eager to test the paint but now i know what to use, unfortunately i mixed 6 of the 12 paints with acetone, now i don't know if i can still use them , thanks for the help guys, apparently the seller on ebay ran out of MEK, so now i'll just put away the other 6 paints i have left for now.
GUNNZO Has this as a Vinyl Paint Thinner ( http://gunnzo.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=40&products_id=1115 ), just got a pint with another load of paints, unfortunately it does not show what kind of chemical it is, does anyone here know if this is MEK by any chance? Or what would be the best mixing ratio with V-Color since it does not come with an application guide.
Thanks in advance
its probably the proper thinner, so i'd assume that its 50/50 like the beginning of this thread says.
I got some but havent had a chance to use it, but on the back it says something about containing ketones and other methyl blahblahblah. hopefully someone can chime in with some more solid info.
or you could try it out and report back
Thanks EVOM, i'll probably try to lay some paint later on today, i think i might have a couple of Munnys lying around somewhere to try it out, don't wanna mess up my goat from hell
