They have done really great color options too, even some glow/UV type stuff. I'm still trying to use up my autoair paints before I invest to much into the new line.

What are you using to clean with?
I use a 50/50 mix of distiled water and isopropyl alcohol. Works great and I've neve had a problem.

Andy has a lot of experience with these paints. I've only used them a couple of times and do find them tricky, but the results are good.
