Can it be used on styrene? It says it's for fabric, wood, leather, clay & other porous surfaces. I saw it at Hobby Lobby and they have some great colors, especially the pearls. It's cheap enough (just under $4) for what I believe is a 4 oz bottle. It's on sale 30% off through 2/07/09.

I just maybe a guinea pig ant try it.

Yes, the createx paints can be used on plastic. I've painted several bodies with some of it so far. It goes on real thin though, so you will definately have to use multiple layers to get any kind of solid look with it. They come readt to go. I didn't thin mine at all before spraying. Hope this helps.

Tank you Chris. I'll pick some up today.

For cleaning can I use 70% alcohol? That's what the Createx air brush cleaner smelled like.
I'm glad one of the Hobby Lobby employees didn't see me & think I was huffing :P

I have used them also, they are light, like mageckman said.
I used 91% to clean it though, it's a bit more stronger.
