So I Thought I would post a little progress on the air-force/brewery pin up commission. I am using a new paint for this painting suggested by Kent Lind. It's Wicked Detail Color by Createx. It is specially designed for airbrushing on many different substrates. While I love Lascaux Acrylics, they are not designed for airbrushing, and as such have some issues: most notably the colors separate quickly when thinned with a lot of water. This means the color is a different hue when first airbrushing than when you get to the bottom of the cup (unless you stir it Constantly.) Secondly, the pigment particles are much larger in the Lascaux paint, so regardless of how much it is thinned, it will always have some issue being sprayed through a precise airbrush like a Iwata Custom Micron. So that is my two cents on that. More progress coming soon. Stay tuned.
