It's easy with VMS concentrate!

Depending on your preferences you may go with ready-made cleaners or formulate your own using VMS concentrates. Concentrates not only save you money but allow to finely tune your cleaning products to your needs. Tired of soaking your airbrush for ages with watered down ready-made products? No problem, make a stronger cleaning agent yourself and get rid of that stubborn paint other cleaners fail to dissolve. An the other way round, why waste strong cleaning solution while just changing colours? Now You decide what's in the bottle!

Some recipies:

VMS Acrylic paint cleaner concentrate needs to me mixed with tap water prior to use. Recommended formulation ratios are as follows: 
20% solution (1:4 ratio) - economical solution, used to clean fresh paint, a few hours old residue. 
30-40% (3:7 and 2:3 ratios) universal cuts - appropriate for fresh  and cured paint (a few days old). 
50% (1:1 ratio) solutions and stronger - used for removing very old, stubborn and thick paint layers.

Remember!

The higher the cleaner percentage in the mix, the faster the results but also the thicker the solution! Use only to remove water-based acrylic colours. Not suited for solvent-based (enamel) colours and solvent-based acrylics. For enamels please use VMS Cleaners Pro for enamel - with blue "ENML" icon!
