What are Model paint sets?

Model paint sets are small collections of paint colors designed for use in painting models, such as miniature figurines, model airplanes, or model cars. These sets include a range of colors and shades that are specifically formulated for use on one specific type range of tones of similar models, and they may also include different types and families in the same box. They can be valid for both brush and airbrush.

There are many different types available, each tailored to different types of models and preferences. Some sets may be designed for specific genres or periods, such as World War II tanks or fantasy characters. Others may be designed for specific techniques or effects, such as weathering, metallic, or even chameleon finishes.

When choosing any of them, it's important to consider the type of Resin Busts and Figures you'll be painting and the colors and effects you want to achieve.

Working with the best paints for figures from Green Stuff World will be always a clever thing to do.

Overall, an acrylic model painting set can be a great way to get started with painting miniatures or to expand your existing collection of colors and effects at lower and cheaper prices.

Add-ons for model paint sets 

The Green Stuff World paint sets contain up to 48 pots. To use them comfortably and get the best finishes, make sure you have all the necessary tools, which you can find on our website. Although many could be recommended, the most basic and essential are the following:

  • Brushes. The synthetic brush set is perfect for beginning artists or techniques that need less sharp mediums. They are much easier to maintain than those made with natural cedar, although they will still need to be sharpened after each use. There are 4 brushes of different sizes that can be complemented with others to perform specific techniques. 
  • Water dispenser. The Brush Rinser is the best option to avoid changing the water in the brush cleaning container continuously. Its mechanism allows you to rinse it with new water and dispose of it in the reservoir by pressing the empty button. Once the session is over, the brush soap will make the brushes look as if they had just been bought. 
  • Organizer. At Green Stuff World we have two types of organizers for pots: vertical modular organizers and multipurpose shelves. In addition, you can find several models of display stands and organizers where you can place brushes and other accessories along with the pots. 
  • Paint station with cutting mat. It allows you to work on your miniatures anywhere, providing a workspace with all the necessary elements to be comfortable: display where to place your bottles, brushes, water dispenser, or glass, and a cutting mat to make any modification without any danger.
  • Respirator mask and nitrile gloves. Certain products, such as sprays, or some solvent substances, such as resin, require protection when working with them. Both masks and gloves are two basics to avoid unwanted perspiration or skin irritation.
