    Those who use airbrush to paint what brand of paint do you use?

    I have used Ceatex Auto Air and Ceatex Airbrush paints. They are both great for rockets and spraying indoors with easy cleanup. I agree with the post above that Hobby Lobby is a decent source. And if you get one bottle at a time you can use their 40% off coupon. Michaels used to sell it but...

    Actually, Auto Air is an automotive paint (hence the name).

    Those who use airbrush to paint what brand of paint do you use?

    I was able to pick up a $380 Artograph spray booth on Craigslist for only $75. Perfect for indoor painting. If you look around, they are out there.

    Those who use airbrush to paint what brand of paint do you use?

    Absolutely. I have used many aerosol primers (mostly Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch because I love the way it sands) underneath the Createx airbrush paint. Createx also makes a Sealer White and Sealer Dark which are basically primers that I have used between the primer and Auto Air Pearl paints.

    And you are right.... Hobby Lobby is a great source for Createx. Michaels used to be but they switched to a different brand.

    Those who use airbrush to paint what brand of paint do you use?

    Yes, they are water clean up. It also helps to get a bottle of Createx airbrush cleaner. If you use Createx Auto Air, get a bottle of Auto Air airbrush cleaner.

    Marc... Have you used your airbrush to spray Future too? I know many people do, but I am nervous about it drying inside the airbrush.
