I found a brand of paint at Walmart today that wasn't there a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for a french curve in the crafts/school supplies section, and found a new display for Apple Barrel paints. Permant-Fast Drying-Waterbase Acrylic according to the label. 57 cents for 2 oz, with much larger bottles for 1.25. Just used Pavement color for the centercaps to a set of Mopar Rallyes, and besdies going on dullcoat, looks good. Brushed it on over Krylon classic grey with no ill efects so far. Being waterbased, I don't really expect any. Literally hundreds of colors including metallics. I plan to pick up a few every week. Hope this helps somebody. It took over a month to find the classic Testors bottle of semi-gloss black, and I think it was 1.75. If this works out I won't need those anymore!

I use this a lot on interiors. With it going on flat I use different clears ( Satin,gloss, high gloss) to accent different features and add depth. Great find there bud.

Cool. I figured I was not the first guy to find this stuff, but I would hate for anybody to miss out for the simple lack of a post.

Ceramacote is also supposed to be real good.

What do you guys use to thin this paint if you were to use it in an airbrush?

I have never used it in an airbrush but distilled water is what I would use to thin it since its a water based paint

91% Isopropal alchohol is recommended, but some people prefer windex, future, and even acetone.
