Jc, Bennymacattack on youtube uses this stuff almost exclusively. He has a video showing his process and he does not use a primer. Outstanding results every time. He has just done his first model with Future added as a clear coat but besides that, all have a beautiful shine and clean smooth finish. Check him out. I also was so impressed by his work I bought a pearlized white creatix airbrush yeasterday for  a 55 chevy convertable. I hope to shoot it a little later today.  can't wait.

I use them and I like them.  You can reduce them like crazy and they just work.  They'll go over clean styrene easily as long as you don't build it up too fast; they work well at higher air pressures.  The regular Wicked Colors dry to a semi-gloss sheen and the Detail colors dry to a smooth matte finish.  You can use virtually any clear on top of them, too.

 

The best source of information for any paint is from the maker of the paint.  Look at this guide on the Createx website: http://www.createxco...rface_guide.pdf

Once again... this is not a tip, trick or tutorial, it's a QUESTION.

 

So I moved it to the... wait for it... QUESTION and answer section! Crazy, right?  :rolleyes:
