Thinking of getting started painting my own. Just about blown the budget on lead and plastics, so I need some advice on colors to prevent blowing the house payment :lol: . I want to start painting these 2 colors, so I would like specific brands and color names to buy, preferably waterbase:

rootbeer chartruese body, orange belly

red crawfish

Createx Paints.You can view color charts at dixieart.com or search for createx as they have a web site-I do not remember name.Dixie's prices are good,no shipping over $50,although half of my last order was back-ordered.I use transparent orange over white for bellies,transparent leaf green sides,transparent light brown back,opaque black splatter.This is my version of rootbeer and paints are in order of apllication.
