Most used solid colors?

Post by Panjo! on Wed Jun 03, 2015 10:00 am

Help me expand my kit! I started my backwards, I think- I have mostly splitcakes. I need some solids, but am unsure if I should get a palette or just buy some single colors. Help me decide! I just paint as a hobby right now with my kids, but as I get better I have hopes of doing more. What solid colors do you use most (specific brand and shade would be awesome). Here's what I have:

Dark Blue Global is amazing for line work.
Wolfe Metallic rose is pretty lipstick
Global Lime green is great for ninja turtle
You need a good yellow, orange, and purple.

I take out all my solid colors and repot them in this

Besides my Wolfe black and white, my most used solid paint is DFX metallic blue. It's perfect for Wolverine and captain America. I use my Starblends for most all of my other solid colors. And my one-strokes bear the weight of the rest of my painting.

I use Global Dark Blue and Strong Black a lot. Global Strong Black doesn't stain a bit. In fact, it's easier to remove than any other colors. It is quite amazing. Wolfe white I use the most out of all the whites. It's great for line work and double dipped flowers. It shows up very opaque over other colors and by itself. You just have to play around with the water consistency if you aren't used to wax-based paints. Red is a color I use a lot (because of mainly spiderman) and I use Global and Snazaroo for that. I kind of wish I had gotten palettes of primary, metallic, and neon colors so I could save a little bit of money on cakes. I use split cakes the most out of everything.

I guess it depends on your budget... and if you're just doing this as a hobby - I think a 12 color pallet would be good start with to see what you go through the most (similar to the size of the gold and silver ones you have in your picture): DFX 12 Essential Colors Palette

I never use red paint for Spidey. I always use Starblends. It is brilliantly pigmented, looks great on all skin tones, and can be painted over immediately.

Thank you all! I didn't see all of the replies until now. :-) I found a local shop that sells Cameleon and Mehron/Paradise so I 'm going to start there. I do have Wolfe black/White/Red. I'm finding that I need more jewel tones, as you guys have mentioned.

I know! There's one shop that is all stage make-up that carries Mehron- split cakes even! And a stage lighting shop that sells Ben Nye, Kryolan, and Cameleon. They also said they could order stuff for me!

It's easier for me to gradually build up my stash one or two $7 mini cakes at a time every few weeks than have hubby see online credit card orders show up! ;-)
