    My kid have hot wheels toy cars and few of them change color in hot or cold watter, but on real car looks really cool

    does that colors exist for airbrush?

    Thermochromic pigments is what makes the paint change colors when heat or cold is applied to it. It is a powder mixed in the paint and like most pearl and flakes it needs a larger nozzle , You might be able to use it through a .5 set up or larger.But anything smaller it would clog up more then be use full.

    The glow in the dark only work on a pure white surface You can get a cool effect by laying a candy over it or blocking areas you do not want to glow but the effects of how long it will glow for is limited . Wicked make a glow in the dark paint.
    Mainly comes down to how deep your pockets are to buy and try all the cool things.

    How durable is the effect? I'm thinking of those mugs you get that change when you put hot drinks in them that end up a sort of uniform grey after a few months. Hopefully it lasts well?

    the main thing is how many coats or layer of the powder you apply. the more you use the longer it will last and hold up. But Yes it is not cheap , My daughter has some of those cups as well.

    It means more to the kids when you go that extra mile and also shows them you never know what you can do until you try.

    Received, its glow but if you thin it for airbrush its not glow to little pigment

    So better to buy glow paint for airbrush, this one is for normal paint brush
