Transparent Base is the paint without the pigment. Each Createx paint brand has its own Transparent Base made with that brand’s resin type and generally has the same coating characteristics as the colors within the specific brand.
Appears milky in solution. Dries to a clear finish.
Gloss level after drying depends on specific brand of paint, each Transparent Base matching the gloss level of the colors.
Clear – Transparent Base may be used as a protective coating.
Transparency Extender – Transparent Base works as an extender for adding to colors to increase transparency, like how 4011 or 4012 dilutes colors on Transparent Base also adds resin to the mixture allowing for colors to increase transparency without losing adhesion. This is beneficial when creating washes and tints out of colors where there is more dilutant in the mix compared to color.
Paint Rejuvenator – Paint viscosity may increase after long term storage due to loss of water content. Adding Transparent Base to paint is best way to restore as resin is added when brining back a sprayable viscosity, ensuring adhesion and durability are not affected. Strain well before spraying.

Estimated drying and curing times are set at 70 degrees F and 65% or less relative humidity (RH). Allow for extended drying times in colder or humid conditions. Diluting Transparent Base with 4011 or 4012 decreases drying times and assists curing.
When used as a clear, re-coat times are approximately 10 – 15 minutes. After the last coat is applied, time to tape and handle is approximately 30 minutes.
Time to top-coating with a final clear should be 60 minutes at a minimum. Full cure is approximately 24 – 48 hours after drying.
Transparent Base is best rinsed from the airbrush or spray-gun with 5618 Airbrush Cleaner, 4011 or 4012. Use 4008 Restorer as a rinse for final cleaning.
