Just curious what paints used by those that have been airbrushing for a while?
Note: Yes - I did a seach on historical :-)

I use only water based paints because it is VERY EASY on clean ups
Createx and AutoAir. Can be mixed and matched, and the colors are endless.......Oldthunder

I think most of us are shooting Createx. Someone (Skeeter maybe?) shoots house paint and does well with it.

Thanks for the feedback...
I've been using testor enamels so far with decent results... just wondering if something is better is out there. I hear createx alot - so now I have to give it a shot (no pun) :-)

Hey.......You'll probably find the clean up and color change MUCH easier with the water based paints
I hate spending more time cleaning than painting, so these type paints are ideal. You'll also find that the cost factor is incredible. For the cost of one bottle of Createx or AutoAir, you'll get way more coverage and lures painted than the Testors. Stretchin' your dollar is vital

Beware of using AutoAir with Etex because it reacts in a bad way. Stick with createx.
