Modellers World pigments are top-of-the-line products that declassify the competition. Unique fluffiness and intermingling colors. Each shade in the palette has been carefully prepared from naturally occurring minerals to represent nature as closely as possible. As a result, no matter how you use our pigments, they will behave exactly as they should, unlike the synthetic pigments of the competition. Our pigments are not monochromatic and look great individually. Still, suppose you would like to mix them or modulate the color. In that case, they blend wonderfully together thanks to the ultra-fine gradation.

The packaging is designed for user comfort. Flat and wide makes it easy to scoop up exactly as much as you need. Packages fit together with the bottom on the cap to arrange them in a column of several shades, taking up only 7cm of desk space!

The pigments do not have a use-by date and do not mold, and the only requirement to keep them in good condition is sealed packaging. You don’t have to worry about it because the containers are equipped with soft EPE seals! Lasting for years instead of a powder rock like the cheap ones.

There is a 35ml net of product in the package.

I haven’t seen you in my stores, do you have any distributors?

We are a niche brand; we do not focus on mass sales. We have been in business since 2019. The products are entirely manufactured in Poland. At this moment, we are available in most stores in Poland through HOBBY2000 distribution and in the UK through Javis. We also have a distributor in Ireland, Portugal, and Greece.

Shipments are insured, but we know how stressful it is to wait. Buying in our store, you have a guarantee that if the goods are lost in transit or arrive broken, we will give you your money back immediately, without waiting for a response from the shipping company. If the damage was not visible on the outside of the package, you just need to send us photos on the day of receipt. In our experience, however, lost packages account for approximately 0.1%, and damaged goods account for less than 0.5% of shipments. 99.4%, therefore, arrives without unpleasant incidents.

Product FAQ

Why does the pigment have a specific name and there are other recommendations in the description and filters?

Filters and recommendations that we present are our suggestions where we see the use of the product, and it is not always the primary use; sometimes complementary or just fitting to the given type of model or diorama. Weathering is a complex and complicated procedure. As in nature, many colors exist in seemingly different conditions. For example, the color of rust and its obvious use can also be used to re-create the dust or soil of Vietnamese roads, a row of soils formed from sands, characterized by ferruginous envelopes on the grains of sand, causing the rust color. Many colors can be used, if not as a base, to complete the scene’s tone. The wider the palette, the more interesting the design!

What do you recommend for fixing pigments?

Honestly…? Nothing. Pigments look most natural unsprayed. Any liquid turns the pigment into a liquid substance, right? If you don’t plan to touch the model in the future, pigments are phenomenal in their natural form, esp. thicker layers of dirt, dust, or loose soil. Modellers World offers pigment cement, a product with balanced capillarity that gently pulls the pigment up; you can use it under the pigment to get interesting-looking layers of stuck-on mud or dirt or sand. However, if you need to cure the pigment, use Modellers World Oils thinner & cleaner to set the pigment, and when dry, mist the whole model with Anti UV matt varnish. Popular commercially available fixatives are very aggressive. They create a hard shell of pigment and give a clear cut-off line, so we do not recommend them.
