Paint

There are many brands of paint out there, and of the many brands there are the two main types used for airbrushing.

These are:

Water Based:

Usually an Acrylic is where the main volume of the paint is made up of water. These paints are considerabley safer than their solvent based counterparts, and as far as ease of use and quality, for water based airbrush painting we recommend:

Trident Water Based Airbrush Paint (www.tridentairbrush.com)

 

Solvent Based:

Solvent Based paint is commonly reffered to as "urethanes" or "Base coat". It is most commonly used in Automotive Airbrushing and any metal based products like Airbrushing fridges or computers. Its mainly a chemical make-up of thinners and solvents and should not be used without adequate ventilation and face masks/ventilators.

For solvent/urethane based paint for airbrushing, we recommend:

DNA Custom Paints and Finishes (www.dna-paints.com)
