Testors Enamel Paint Set
I received the paint on Tuesday as was expected. I haven’t used them yet because I’m still waiting for the model I ordered.
Great Value Do All Enamel Kit! Love Testors Paints!!!
This is a Great Value! There is no way you will find a better price on this many colors, a free brush and tray anywhere…even locally at craft/hobbie stores. In fact, those prices are nearly double in some circumstances. I bought this for some odd projects like highlighting gun sights and the punch marks in my wrenches so that I can see the tool size easily from a distance or in bad light situations.
Testors Promotional Enamel Paint Set
It’s been years since I painted model planes, but Testors is still the oil-based enamel paint to use. I bought this promotional set to paint small hockey game players. The paint is outstanding. Instead of using the enclosed solvent, I use my own paint solvent from the garage and pour some into a glass holder (like the ones used in restaurants to hold au jus or horseradish for your prime rib) The paint brushes on very nicely and smoothly, but because solvent evaporates very quickly from the paint brushes and on the model, try to paint your model just once and don’t repeatedly go over the same area because you will lift the paint. Wait until the paint is dry before brushing it over. This is especially true if you want to cover up so boo boos. If you paint over another area before it is dry and set, the solvent in the fresh paint will lift the original paint off causing it to mix it in with your fresh paint, and voila, you just created a new paint color. If you make any painting mistakes, don’t worry, solvent comes to the rescue. The paint will cover other colors usually in one stroke. Changed some color areas may require two separate coats. Be sure to stir up the paint with a toothpick before using. The gold and silver paints have to be stir frequently because the metallic flakes separates rather quickly. But once stirred, the metallic paint paints on evenly and looks very nice. I used only 1/3 or less of the paint in each bottle, so there are enough paint to paint several small model planes.
Worth the decades of hype
I get it now. All the reviews about how Testors is the best and it’s been around forever, bla bla bla. Except it’s not bla bla bla… not at all! This paint is incredible. The fumes are strong but not any stronger than your average nail polish in my opinion. Keep the windows open though.
Testors Paints stand the test of time
Have been using Testors for years. Amazing the price has stayed so reasonable. Lately I have been “staining” concrete outdoor benches and animals to give them new life. I do this by diluting the paint with the thinner. I didn’t want the items to look real colorful, but more muted. They look great.
some things never change, which isn’t always a bad thing
After having taken a roughly 20 year break from model-making, from my childhood to now, you can’t imagine how unjustifiably happy I was to find that Testors paints still come in the same little glass jars. The sound of those clinking together really took me back. Oh, and the paint is lovely and functional as well, just as it was 20 years ago.
a great product and delivery
This is not our old blotchy model paint. It self-levels and dries beautifully. Very high gloss when needed. This pic is one coat.
Bought this for my son who wanted to paint a model Dodge Challenger. His father has a lot of experience with painting model cars,maw it was his hobby as a child, so he taught my son. This is a nice, oil-based set, and the colors are vibrant. It comes with a tiny bottle of thinner, the same size as the bottles of paint. I would recommend purchasing some more thinner if you are really into it. My son finished building his Pinewood Derby car for the upcoming Pinewood Derby race. He used these paints to paint his race car, and it turned out beautifully. He only needed one coat of paint because he had primed the car white. This is a nice quality set.
Paint was used on a vertical primed metal surface (the back of a T-Bucket) to recreate a hand drawn design with quality paint brushes. I did not use the included brush. I found the paint to cover well. It was true to the expected color. Paint consistency was perfect for this use. Viscosity was consistent in all bottles. Painting conditions were outdoors, in the shade, temperatures above 85 F, humidity between 40 and 60%. Applied paint was blendable for about half an hour. Paint was still tacky over 2 hours later. Each section was dry and ready for a new layer by the next day. My project turned out amazing. The colors are crisp and bright. The metallics add just a bit of sparkle in the sun. Product highly recommend!
