Best Silver/Gold/Gray?

Post by Spelonberry on Mon Jul 15, 2013 10:11 pm

I need some help for deciding on what brands of shiny silver and gold to buy and also what gray. Katurah already recommended FAB gold, but what about the others?

Thanks! A boy asked for War Machine and I got SOOOO PUMPED but no I don't have gray *cries forever*

the new paradise gold and silver are to die for... however, the gold is very crumbly after it dries out. so if you plan to re-pot it without a lid, not a good idea.

FAB gold and silver are good too, I just think the new paradise ones are easier to activate.

Any brand of gray will do I am sure.

I really like the FAB silver. I have Kryolan Bronze for my gold.Like Melinda said, the new Paradise silver activates well & compares really well to the FAB silver, and probably feels softer on--(but sometimes I get frustrated that some Paradise colors--like the light color Prisma cake--don't hold well after painting, not sure about this one.) I like the Paradise for my gray.

I use DFX silver. I haven't tried any others yet. But I liked it enough to re-order it. However, I use it mostly for robot designs for children, and for that I also usually mix it with a little Snaz black to deepen the gray tone while also retaining some luster.

Ok, thanks everyone: one question, what is the paradise gold and silver actually called? I'm trying to find them to order them -- I assume it comes in the 1.4 oz size, but I can't find them! Does anyone know? sometimes they have really weird names, like my Kryolan bronze is actually called Interferenz or something weird like that.

The Paradise AQ Brilliant Silver is AWESOME!  I own couple other metallic silvers and they don't come close.  Here's a pic of the silver and gold... this pic doesn't do them justice.  The gold is a little dark for my liking, but I'm sure I'll figure out something.

Here's where I bought mine.  They have little video talking about them.  I bought silver and gold, plus 6 other TAG rainbow cakes, and Mark Reid brush... shipping was like $6.  I normally compare which site offers most colors then buy all from same spot to save on shipping.  Otherwise I'd buy everything from Metina here.  http://www.jestpaint.com/category-s/1957.htm

Ok either she's added more colors to the TAG series on the Face Paint Forum shop page.... or I was just smoking crack the other night when I ordered. It was 4 a.m. when I was comparing prices and such...... She's almost $1 cheaper then what I paid. Eh... math

Yeh, it's the shipping that gets you.... I love the notes there on each color, but shipping to the far north is $67, whereas on the site I used this time it is $41. The site I usually use is $30 but it doesn't have great selection, and it didn't have the gold and silver. Oh well, for really good paints I'll pay forward!
