On the back side, instructions are explained in 4 languages and 6colors are shown as color chips.

I tried the colors on a wet palette for a BRAVO*6 figure. I thinned them with Vallejo Airbrush thinner, Humbrol acrylic thinner and pure water, all worked well. Base tones look a little thicker than the other tones but all of them are thin and cover very well.  I did not try but I think they can easily be used with airbrush without any problems. 

They dry fast but no problem on blending colors. I did not used a retarder.

 I usually paint figures for dioramas and vignettes more than individual display figures, I can say these paints worked well for me more than several brands I used before.
