So I didn't believe any of you and bought some craft paint, figuring I'd be ok as long as I used an enamel basecoat. Used to use them "when I was a kid".
Well it was going ok till I tried some red. Looked horrible dry. Noticed at the wallie mart that they had some water based acrylic enamel. Bought a few bottles and tried it. Wow, big difference. Dried so much more vibrant, made the other red look almost pastel in comparison. Color choices are a bit limited though, so I've started looking around for other brands of acrylic enamel. Ran across these so far.
I've never used GW paint. I'm just sure I can get the same kind of paint somewhere else in bigger bottles for the same money. Its just narrowing down what the right stuff is thats the problem. FYI...Createx airbrush paint does NOT stick well to plastic minis as a base coat. Brushes right off with your fingers when dry...kinda like soot.
I'll be buying some of that paint in the link in the near future...I'll let you know how it turns out.
Ok, thats dumb...the link doesn't work because of the site name. d i c kblick.com. Paste it into your browser and change the stars to the letters. Sorry about that.
Found a much larger selection of the Folkart Acrylic Enamels at Micheals. They had the Liquitex acrylic enamels too but it was a choice between $2 and $5 for a 2oz bottle of paint and the Folkart acrylic enamals are working beautifully for me. Maybe when I have the full range of folkart colors I'll start picking up the Liquitex to replace basic colors I run out of, they dont make a very wide range of them anyway.
