Please help me shop for paint and brushes, I need your input :)

Post by Inca on Mon Jun 08, 2015 2:32 am

Heya!
I'm feeling confused, I'm trying to shop for new paints for my kit.
Can anyone tell me about "global", "superstar" "kryvaline" and "PX" paints? What will you compare them to? Are these creamy/wax based?
Also, shopping for brushes, which ones are your favorite?

I always recomend a wax based paint. Which one you choose is all up to you. My main brand is TAG, but I also have some DFX, Global, kryvaline, and some SillyFarm Rainbow Cakes, in my kit.

I even have some StarBlends, and 1 Paradise Metallic Green in my kit. Some brands have colors that just look better or work better for certain things, so don't get to married to a single brand.

The main reason I use tag is because i like the consistency and the containers better, and it's a bit more cost effective then DFX or Wolfe for my main color pallet.

As for brushes, I totally have my favorites that I swear by.
