Acrylic paints work great on model cars. When using an airbrush, the paints can often be thinned with rubbing alcohol. Brushes can also be used, especially for small details.

What is the best black car wax?

The best thing for all acrylic paint is to never put wax on it.Wax actually covers and dulls the factory mirror like shine.Today's acrylic paints benefit from acrylic paint conditioners.Acrylic paints have a unique shine on them. It is one that cannot be copied by aftermarket methods. Wax will dull it and Polish will destroy it.Look closely at the paint on a car that has been waxed and you will see spider webs and uneven swirl marks.This happens with the application of solid wax on acrylic paint.Look at the paint on a new car and you won't see any of these defects.conditioning the surface to preserve the factory shine is what acrylic paint conditioners do for the paint. Instead of covering and dulling they enhance the natural beauty and shine of the paint itself.The best treatment for a black car as well as any other color of automotive acrylic paint in my opinion is a spray on, non abrasive, 100% pure liquid Acrylic paint conditioner.It will protect and preserve the mirror like shine in new cars and bring it back in older cars
