Just another question on paints

7 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I've looked through several of the threads on paint but haven't been able to really find an answer to my question. I would like to get away from enamels and lacquers basically because of lung issues I have. I would like to go to water based acrylics. I've looked at Createx and even though there seems to be some issues with them I believe I can overcome them with the information I've found on YouTube. I've also looked at Model Master and Testor's airbrushable acrylics. My question is what would be the best water based acrylic and where can I find information on them as far as thinning and applying? Any comments on the above acrylics is definitely welcome.

What about Acrylic enamels, like Testor's Acryl line? They're water washable/thinnable and have no fumes.

If you mean the ones in the !/4 oz. bottles, I just got through using them on some detail work on a chassis. I brushed them and they seem to work good. I wish they made them in a larger container. I would like to use them in an airbrush but like I said I wish they came in a larger container.

Check out Dr. Crankys utube videos about acrylics. He covers a variety of brands. Very informative.

Tamiya water-borne acrylics airbrush very nicely as well. They take a bit of getting used to, but they give a hard, smooth and shiny finish (their flats work quite well also).

Thanks guys.

Art, can you use Future to clear over the Tamiya's? I thought I read somewhere that using Future over Tamiya would cause it to crack.
