Basic painting tips from Humbrol  for Humbrol enamel paints tinlets.
Always stir the paint to ensure a uniform mix throughout the container. We recommend stirring in a figure-of-eight motion for a minimum of 30 seconds or longer. You can never stir too much!!
Some parts of your model kits are best painted before being glued together. Always scrape any paint from the surfaces to be glued to ensure a good bond; the glue's effectiveness is much reduced on a painted surface area.

Always apply paint sparingly on important detail so as not to obscure it, or thin the paint down first before applying.

When applying several coats of paint always make sure that the previous coats have thoroughly dried, or a fine 'wrinkling' effect can occur.

When painting large areas using a brush, it is better to use a larger brush to eliminate any brush strokes.

After using your tinlet of paint always clean around the neck of the container before putting the lid back on. This will give a better seal between the lid and tin.

If you are painting using any technique, product or material for the first time, we always recommend experimenting on either a sample piece or a small non-visible area of your item before painting the whole area.
