cheap acrylics versus Createx

8 posts in this topic

Createx is formulated for AB use. Are acrylics detrimental to AB's? Do they clog easily in the tip? I see here some use them. I own alot of Ceramcoat paints. Just now starting to collect Createx. I was just wondering ....... :?

cermacoat works fine but you will have to play with thinning to get the right consistency for painting. I personally don't use much c-tex because it is too thick. I use golden and com-art paints and I can spray at 15psi without any problems. I do use a cheap craft paint (metallic pearl white) as my base coat and thin it with windex.

Createx autoair works very nice for me!but needs to be thin some times!and the colors available are awesome!!!!And it's non-toxic so that's a good reason to use it! :D

Jaime, if I don't set the paint good with a hair dryer then it will. I also let the baits hang for 24hrs before I touch them.

thanks Benton B! I really like com-art but was hesitant on using it because of this! Now I know to use a hair dryer to heat set it. com-art sprays real nice in my iwata hp-c as opposed to createx.

I use mostly non-AB acrylics including Folkart, Plaid and Apple Barrel. They have larger particles than Createx but I haven't had inordinate problems with clogging or any noticable damage of Paasche VL parts when thinned properly with plain water. I set them with a hair dryer. Besides the 88 cent cost, I like the wide array of hues including some nice metallics. I haven't had good luck with Delta Ceramcoat. Does it have an additive designed for being fired on pottery? Dunno. My bottom line is find colors you like, then adapt them work. About the only Createx colors I like are the pearl white and the metallic blue. Every maker has different color tastes and that's a good thing.
