    Re: Serious question

    I haven't used the Liquitex, just the acrylic Americana line and a few of the apple. So their pigments might be from a different source or mixture. Liquitex is a better quality of paint than Americanan and Apple. Plus these are meant for "Crafts" not so much AB and modeling.

    I absolutely agree. I am just psyched that they work as well as they did. I am trying to become more familiar with my airbrush.

    Re: Serious question

    Just remember to error is human, so when (not if, but when) you mess up with the AB just go with it. Now you know one more way of what "Not" to do. LOL The AB will open so many doors in painting it is worth the trouble getting to know all the tricks and what not.
    I notice that you use Tamyia. When you mix it do you use their lacquer thinner? It is a finer filtered lacquer thinner that gets the best out of the paint. But for clean up, I just use the Home Depot version Lacquer thinner. Cheap for cleaning, expensive for painting. I learned that the hard way my self.

    I actually use the Tamiya thinners specially formulated for the paints and I have had no issues with it so far. As far as cleanup goes I use alcohol or the Ace Hardware branded thinner. Since that is the shop that is closer. So we are both on the same page there which is nice.

    Re: Serious question

    Yup that is the same sype stuff. Our Ace hardware was a victim of arson a year ago, and they never reopened. The building burnt to the ground. So the land was sold off and is just sitting vacant. They are still looking for the arsonist, we have had a string of house fires start up again here, they think it is either the same person or someone they know and is a copy cat. They woun't say how they know, but they said that they know the MO. Which is good that thye won't say so he/she/it doesn't know what to change in their fire starting, but they do know that they are on to them. Plus it helps cut out anymore copy cats from poluting the investigation.

    Sorry off topic there. Opps. AAAhh life in Baltimore MD

    I completely understand. I live out in OH we have stuff like that happen all of the time. It sucks but it is the nature of the beast.

    Okay so I gave it a full 24 hours to dry and I have not had any issues with handling the painted spoon. No scratches, no gouges, no issues. I am going to be putting together a HG DeathScythe as a test run piece for this paint in the next week or so. So keep a lookout for the post. I will link back here.

    Re: Serious question

    One quick little tip. Feel the paint, some times it has a very slight “ruff” texture to it. Sometimes, not all the time, the pigment kind of stacks up? That’s the best description I can think of. It has high and low spots. But anyway I go over it with a light wet sand with something like a 1000 grit or at the least a 800grit. But I keep it wet, I have gone as far as to sand it completely submerged in water. That will make the next layer even smoother as well.

    I do the same. This didn't have that issue though the flow aid really helped with the leveling. The dry time was next to nothing as well. I just let it sit because I wanted verification.

    Re: Serious question

    Gunpla.evolved, have you ever thought about using your custom paint for panel lining?

    I have actually. To be honest I would need to do something a little different so I could make the capillary action work properly but I think it would work. I already make my own panel wash and liner using enamel paints. I have a really nice custom blue liner I made using testors cobalt and some X20 thinner. It works quite well for shadows on purple/blue pieces from what I have been told. I am not quite sure how acrylics would work for panel lining. Any insight?
