    Airbrush paints in South Africa

    Are there any South African airbrush artists on this board that can share some info specific to the airbrush paints available in SA, Brands and where to source?

    What type of paint should I use for general artworks, T Shirts, Murals, etc?
    What would you recommend painting on, paper, cardboard, canvas, etc?

    When it comes to automotive paints do you use the normal lacquers and 2K paints, hardners and thinners? Are they thinned as you would when painting with standard spray guns or is it done differently. Can you paint automotive metallics and pearls with airbrushes?

    Thanks

    Airbrush paints in South Africa

    I use Com-art on paper, board and canvas. You can get it from me or here http://executool.co.za/index.php. I only order as I get orders in. You can also google Caps 'n Cans for Molotow. Very good paints. At the art shops they have Daler Rowney FW inks and Liquitex but it is ridiculously expensive. Also look at Dala acrylic inks. Pretty good for the price but their white is useless.

    I have imported Createx which is a fabric paint but have not used it in fabric yet.

    For auto work I would suggest you get some urethanes from you local panelbeaters. I don't know how the previously mentioned brands work on metal.

    Leigh, thanks for that but that is not really "available in SA". That is just people who are willing to bring it in for you from Amazon.

    Try this guy Nelson Oliveira, quintuseng at lantic.net, Cell: 082 452 1014, Tel: 087 751 3837. They do DNA, Trident and Createx. They are now trying to get Wicked and Wicked Detail as well.

    Hi Leigh, welcome to the forum. I cant add much because I am pretty new to Abing with propper paints - I hope you come right. I am basically using the dala and Daler Rowney.

    Hi Andre

    You mention the dala acrylic inks. Do you use it yourself and if you do do you use the retarder when airbrushing?

    Thx
