There are currently three additives for SDW Shading Colors, let's see what they are for:
TESC98 Gloss Additive
- to get a glossy finish
- to speed up drying of an airbrushed paint
- to make the paint more transparent (less opaque), glazing effects
Mix with SDW Shading Colors in a proportion at your taste
TESC99 Matt Additive
- to get a matt finish. It is not necessary for airbrush, but it is indispensable for figure painting, as passing and brushing over the figure tends to smoothen the paint, and therefore a little more shiny.
- to shorten the thickening and drying time
Mix with SDW Shading Colors in a proportion of 1/4 or 1/3
TESC96 Fusion Extreme
- by brush, it increases the gradation capacity / blendability of the SDW Shading Colors, reducing their opacity
- improves gradation capacity / blendability of a fresh SDW Shading Color over a cured one
- allows you to blend SDW Shading Colors for a long time even if diluted with water, because the addition of water would tend to speed up the drying time
- added to a thickened SDW Shading Color it restores its softness and blendability
Mix with SDW Shading Colors in a proportion at your taste, normally from 1/5 to 1/2.
