Which AK paints? Real colors, 3rd generation, something else?
@Kefffy alot do these paint are air brush primary. Only certain ones can be brushed on and even then that’s minimal.
AK 3G Special set. 3rd Generation Acrylics, on the box
I’ve used the AK 3G acrylics and I observe that when I bought them new they were great. I could airbrush with them even. But after they had aged a bit, I could not get them to airbrush at all.
For brush painting I still use them and they are much like Vallejo. I use them on top of a primer and have not had issues with adhesion. (FWIW I typically use some type of mr surfacer as my primer). They do not a considerable bit of shaking to get blended well, and often still adding a little water and stirring on the palette to get a consistent mix.
