So i went out and got 2 air brushs.. A touch up, and a pen style.. Along with alot of createx paints.. The wicked line.. I think im going to have fun.. Need to get hose fittings, then its time to rock and roll...

Hey, just for arguments sake.. Couldnt i use a sponge and apply the paint? Like peemagloss for example..

Im going to use the air brushs.. My wife would kill me otherwise, just curious ks anyone tried that.. I think it would be a waste of paint though

That's how I do it. With a sponge and then set it with heat from a heat gun as per instructions. Good luck with the air brushes.I never had luck with the Wicked colors, too watery. My best finishes were with the pearlized and sparkelesent colors.

createx paints wicked, Make sure you use the Base Coat sealer first, I your case white. I have also tinted my base coat sealer, With a few drops of the color as well, Just to get true color that i was looking for. You end up using less topcoats. Take your time a play around a bit first. Cheers Jaa

Noted.. Im pretty lost with what does what.. I mean i get it, its not crazy complex.. Everything i got has the wicked logo, so im guessing they are all compatable.. Except the airborne sealer.. I realized after i got home that it doesnt say if its for wicked or not.. I also grabbed reducer, gun cleaner, balancer additive along with neon pink, neon purple, white, black, matte, and gloss finish.

When i mix up the color, i plan on using the balancer.. But do i still use the reducer then? I only got 2oz.bottles of everything, that cost 120$ with the 2 cheap guns i purchased.. Otherwise i would have gotten the 4oz. Bottles atleast

Temperature and Humidity CAN come into play here as well. And no it's not as complicated as it sounds, Get some gun time in, And learn the gun adjustments, Poster board works great for showing your guns paint atomization and spray patterns. Watch some YouTube Videos. Windex with a little shot of Isopropyl Alcohol works great for cleaning the guns after using Createx as well. Cheers Bud!!

The matte and clear are for external use and are createx 5620 and 5622.. The white, black, and 2 neons are just paint..

Check out Rustoleum 2X they have a couple pinks. I did a purple blank with it, topped it with permagloss for my daughter. Fished it this weekend at a wall, she kept laying it against the wall, held up very good!!
