Review: Scale75 Instant Colors – Contrast alternative or not?
Citadel Contrast is a controversial product: some love it, others don’t get it. But one thing can be said: they have started a trend – the “one coat painting solution”. The Army Painter will soon release Speedpaints, and last year Scale75 funded their one coat paint via Kickstarter. In this review, we find out if Scale75 Instant Colors can compete with Contrast, and what the differences are between the two products.
