Recommended paints?
« on: December 06, 2018, 08:53:41 PM »
Hey guys! So the tinsel and rehairing tool I ordered arrived a few days ago, so now I need to get paint so I can start working on my very first custom. I was wondering what kinds of paints you guys use for your customs, as well as what kind of sealant you recommend!

I use Createx Paints for my airbrush and Vallejo Model Color for my paint jobs. Vallejo last very long, I use them for like 10 years and are still satisfied. Don't mismatch them with Game Color from Vallejo. Useful too but not as good as the Model Color ones.

As for sealants I always used Mod Podge Gloss and Matte. Now I use a matte Polyurethane sealer, which is awesome too - Deco Art DuraClear.

for paints I use folks art acrylics, if sealed properly I've had no problems with it and its fairly cheap and has a wide array of colours
