Paint options

Post by SweetnArtsy on Tue Feb 24, 2015 10:26 am

So many choices! Shocked I am looking for a paint that is very blendable, opaque, and brightly colored without fragrance. Weird question, Does anyone else have the problem of the model rapidly absorbing the paint? alien

I'm a paradise lover personally, but it's highly fragrant. You might try Silly Farm's FAB. Both of these are glycerin based paints like Snazaroo and I'm only suggesting them because I have trouble getting wax based paints to work for me (I have yet to try Tag or Kryolan)

I was contemplating fab but I am concerned about the fragrance. What about chameleon or global?

lol sounds like you want to have your cake and eat it too. Razz

Basically you want it all. 

See, the most brightly colored opaque paints are usually a wax based brand, but they are trickier to blend then Glycerin because they dry faster. Glycerin base more often have more fragrance usually too.

They all have their own quirks, setbacks, and advantages. But you'll be hard pressed to find a brand that is the best of all these aspects, with none of the drawbacks. :/

I know, I am greedy Wink
I figure I will just have to learn how to blend it faster before it dries. I am going to try some global to see if it will work better for me in that specific aspect. Thanks for the advice everyone!

Here, this chart has a lot of the main brands laid out and compared rather nicely. Though some of the newer brands aren't on here.
