    Hello everyone! Here in my country (Chile) there are no airbrush paints from popular brands (Createx, Etac, etc... none of them). I want to get some Wicked paints, but to do so, my only option is to buy them online. The thing is, shipping prices kill me. I've checked some stores online and all, but I'd also like to hear from people with similar issues. Do you recomend any particular store to buy these paints? Any advice on how to mitigate the shipping cost?

    Hmmm, have you tried any of the automotive painters?
    Mitigate shipping costs... get lots... Shipping stuff can be expensive but paint lasts a long time... :)

    You mean our local automotive painters? Yes, but they usually make and sell their own automotive paints... besides, I want to paint on canvas mainly, that's why I was looking to try Wicked :p
    And yes! The shipping cost makes sense when getting a lot of bottles. I checked a store in Mexico where I can buy 25 Wicked paints (2 oz.) for about $130 (USD), international shipping included... is that a good deal?

    Sounds about right. Coast airbrush, chicago airbrush, foxy art studios are all places you can go and check the prices. Maple art is another one and amazon is always good for a lead as well.

    Hi,

    I recently bought some paints from 'Graphic Air' in the UK to use with my Iwata Eclipse.

    They have all the paints you've just named above and they are really well priced.

    They were really fast and had so much choice to choose from.

    I'd give them a look at.

    Happy hunting
