Could someone remind me of the brand and color of paint used to change bright white LED to softer white color
Thanks

Thanks for the response. I want to tone down (from bright) the exterior lights on the Mendards Melrose Park Station. I recall a discussion of toning down to a softer incandescent tone light by applying a specific brand/color model paint color to the LED bright white lights

Appreciate help

I have had good luck using an orange or yellow Sharpie. I have also used orange Tempera paint (like we used in Vacation Bible School art projects)

I've used Testors Model Master Clear Yellow and Clear Orange with good results. Clear yellow is my fav, and sometimes I do multiple coats.
