Top Paint colors in any brand

Post by SaraM on Mon Dec 17, 2012 1:29 pm

I am looking to buy a new batch of paint. I'm sure we all have those colors that we use ALL the time, and then the ones that kind of go un-touched. I'm looking for some must haves to add to my collection!
For example, my must haves are a Unicorn split cake by TAG and Sea Blue by Wolfe.
Suggestions??

Ziva Blue by Fab or Superstar, depending on which it's branded as. And Ploppy Orange, if you can get it. Both stunning.

Carnival split cake (fabulous neon), berry wine and pearl green by TAG.

Wolfe black and white.

Snazaroo metallic purple.

Just my humble opinions, and I'm sure I'd come up with more but these are just the first that spring to mind. Smile

This is a very good idea, especially if you can add pictures as well!
One of my favourites is the snaz sparkle orange - use it almost every time, I love the golden shimmer it has and its creamy opacity.
And of course wolfe white and wolfe black

I use it for shading other purples, fun zombie eye sockets, or sometimes on top of Snaz sparkle white with black line work on top. I don't think I have a photo of what I mean, but there are a couple of designs in the Illusion and Friends books that look wonderful with the metallic purple. It's just a really, really pretty purple. These aren't exactly great examples as I haven't been able to take photos of recent paintings, but I used it here:

thanks Gil, that looks very pretty, i had not thought about doing flowery designs with it. Because it is so dark i only used it once to make a wizard.
Guess that 's why I did not think of it as a girly colour...

this is def. a very good thread! thanks!

I couldn't resist trying Kryolan Interferenz bronze after reading so many raves and I am super glad I splurged. It is a beautiful color. I will also agree wholeheartedly with the Carnival and pearl Unicorn 50 gram cakes.

I LOVE TAG pearl white. I blow through it like you wouldn't believe.

TAG pearl black makes amazing batmans. I used to use snaz (b/c I hated having wolfe black all over a kid) but TAG is so much nicer.

And Katurah - I was a Snaz spidey believer. But Snaz melted one two many times, the blue containers cracked, and I couldn't repot it because Snaz eats plastic.

Now I use Kryolan. I'm much happier.

Honestly, all of the TAG pearls rock. I just bought the bronze green. GORGEOUS.

I also agree with Kammy, with the Snaz sparkle Purple, I used it for one of my lions earlier this year Smile
