Aqueous Hobby Colors

Mr. Hobby Aqueous paint

Mr. Hobby, also known as GSI CREOS, is a Japanese company specialized in modelling tools with a focus on mecha model kits. Their products range from beginner tools to high-precision tools for the most demanding of builders.

Hobby paints are made by binding a pigment to a carrier, which decides the type of paint we're dealing with. One of the main reasons as to why we should use this kind of paint over regular brands is the grain of the pigment, which is far smaller than in other types of paints and makes it ideal to work with on smaller scales without hiding details.

The Aqueous line of paints is composed of water-based acrylic paints, which makes them incredibly easy to use while able to achieve great results. They dry quickly but require a longer curing time compared to other kinds such as lacquer. Thanks to their lower toxicity there's no need for a respirator but it's still recommended that you paint in a well-ventilated environment and at least, wear a mask.

In exchange for all these perks, they are not as scratch-resistant as other kinds of paints and certain techniques may be harder to carry out with them.

Overall, they're an ideal pick for both beginners who want to start customizing their Gunpla and to the experts that know how to fine-tune their dilutions.
