Tru-Color Paint comes in three lines, Air-brush Ready, Paint-brush Ready and Spray Can formulas. Tru-Color Paint is an Acrylic solvent-based paint. Acrylic paints can be solvent-based or water-based, Tru-Color is solvent-based and therefore is a 'hot' paint that needs ventilation for the modeler when painting.
All bottled paint lines are formulated for airbrushing except the TCP-800 to TCP-899 series (Flat Colors) which are formulated for application with a paint brush. The airbrush-ready colors dry glossy (usually, see product description) ready for decal application. Some modelers have attempted to airbrush the 800 series paints with mixed results.
This is an Acrylic solvent-based paint, not a Lacquer paint. It is similar to the former Accu-Paint brand but better in pigment quality and bonding to materials. The bottles are physically smaller and weigh less than glass bottles yet have the same volume of paint.
Shipping by First Class Mail is inexpensive. Up to 15.9 ounces of paint can ship via USPS First Class Package.
Up to 1.5 lbs. of product can ship Priority Mail. 1.5 lbs. is many, many bottles of Tru-Color Paint. Other paint brands ship by UPS Ground in heavy glass bottles which costs almost as much as the paint itself.
