MakingTamiya clear acrylic paint
Posted by Calmo2 on Friday, June 01, 2018 1:12 PM

Hello: I was just wondering if you could make clear acrylic brown paint by mixing X-9 Brown with X-22 clear? I want to paint my " Revell '29 Ford T sedan delivery van" clear brown over tamiya X-11 metalic silver. Unfortunatley Tamiya doesn't make a clear Brown. Just wondering if I could make some mixing the the brown and the clear together. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks George.

I don't think it will make it 'slightly translucent' if that's you're aim. still, can't hurt to try a little sample by adding brown pigment in the clear. an alternative might be to add a bit of black to clear orange to darken it up, which tamiya does make.

what was the result you were looking for?

Thanks guys. Mini Man-Thanks, I am going to try and mix some brown and clear and see what happens. Aussiemusle - Thanks, I never thought about a lttle black mixed with clear orange!! I will try that. I have both. I have painted a 1967 Camaro SS 396 with X27 clear red over X11 chrome silver and it turned out great. Looks like real metalic red paint and that is what I am trying for with the brown on the 26 Ford delivery van. Thanks again guys.
