The Vallejo Company was registered in New Jersey, U.S.A., in the year 1965. In these early years it specialized in the manufacture of colors for animated films (cartoons). The most sustained expansion of Vallejo started in the nineties, beginning with the introduction of new products directed at the Model painting and Hobby sector. The company became the first specialist in acrylic colors, with a long and varied experience in all aspects of this branch of manufacturing. The formula contains a new acrylic resin with properties until now impossible to obtain in a water based acrylic. The resistance, hardness and covering power of Model Air is superior to any known acrylic for airbrushing. Model Air is presented in a 17 ml. bottle with eyedropper. This packaging prevents the paint from evaporating and drying in the container.
Liquid Mask Used to reserve areas which are to remain unpainted, especially in airbrush techniques, but also with watercolours and temperas. Liquid Mask forms a protective film on the area which the artists does not want to paint. Once the work is dry, liquid mask is rubbed off with an eraser or piece of cloth, revealing unpainted area..
