I just got an airbrush and was wondering what everyone here uses for paints and reducers? Also where do you buy yours? I see a lot of people using HOK paints and would love to know where to buy them.
When it comes to paint use the manufacturers specified reducers. Reduction varies depending on each paint brand, type of paint, color of paint, and the level of pigment in the paint, and the size of nozzle/needle you are using. The general rule of thumb for airbrush reduction is the paint to have the consistency of 2% milk. HOK paints are available at Coast Airbrush or TCP Global. If you are going to use HOK paints, make sure to use a respirator. I cannot stress this enough. They're very toxic.
