New Review: Tamiya Diorama Texture Paint Soil Effect


Recommended Posts

Product Image

Tamiya has made available a group of 4 texture paints and this review highlights one of those products, namely Tamiya’s “Soil Effect†texture paint.These paints are water-based and come in powder snow, snow, and “soil effect-dark earthâ€. Several other colors have been discontinued.

An appropriate description of this paint, describing the texture would be, “ gritty toothpasteâ€, or “damp saltâ€. Straight from the bottle, the paint does not look like paint at all, but rather a paste consisting of fine grit.

I chose to apply some of this paint to a diorama base for a dinosaur. The base was already covered with “groundâ€, “rocks†and “vegetation†but there were areas in which the material had worn off a bit, creating a perfect test bed.

I just received a note from Fred Medel of Tamiya America, He said "In the article it’s mentioned the other texture paints are discontinued. Actually, we are in the process of bringing those to the US market as well. They are currently available in Japan, but we need to have the remaining texture paints tested and relabeled for the US market requirements. Hopefully really soon….

Something to watch out for.
