Hi may I offer a tip. To colour white tissue or deepen coloured tissue shades use cloured water in your spray. This is obtained using water color paints. You recall i'm sure using these paints as a child and how the rinse water became coloured form rinsing the brush.To get the densest colour drop a block of the desired shade into a small screw topped jar or similar and shake it until it won't get any darker. Then transfer the medium as we will call it into your sprayer and use as you would the ordinary plain water. Et voila colour without weight ( almost )
If it shows patchy just as it is almost dry just spray a bit more on. Simples
Good luck

Oops Don't forget the water in the jar with the paint block. Oh yes if you break up the block it works quicker Cheers

Excellent guide and videos. Thanks. It would be nice to see this extended to include covering a fuselage and wings which cannot be covered simply by dropping the part on the tissue.

In reply to martyn, if covering wings I always stick the tissue to the spar first and leave to dry. Then stretch tissue to te & le alternately.This is good for undercamber wings.
