Post by starponysmama on Wed Jul 29, 2009 5:09 pm

If you had to pick from all manufacturers what was the best one of each..... what would you say:

Red:

Orange:

Yellow:

Green:

Blue:

Purple:

Brown:

Black:

Silver:

Pink:

Gold:

Gray

Just trying to get good with the basics. I HATE the Paradise Royal Blue! YUCK!

Just want your opinion........... if different shades say, light/dark please indicate that also.

Red: DFX or Paradise Beach Berry

Orange: Snaz Dark Orange

Yellow: Jury still out

Green: DFX light green mixed with DFX neon Green

Blue: DFX Light Blue

Purple: Jury still out

Brown: Snaz Dark Brown

Black: DFX Black

Silver: Pardise Silver Bullet

Pink: Paradise Dark Pink

Gold: Kryolan IF Bronze

Copper: Snaz Copper is good, but is small a sparkle brown in my book. Would love to know who is the trues copper like a new penney.

Gray: Don't really use much

The Kryolan Copper is REALLY a nice copper. A bit darker than 'new penny', but with the same tones and 'shiney' color. I love it for Tiger muzzles on my Copper Tigress.

I really need to tighten up my kit - I am still playing with different brands - I am favoring paradise at the moment-Wouldn't it be great to have a perfect pallette recipe.

Shannon, has your list changed since you wrote it? I know you said you use a lot of DFX now...have certain colors proved better than Snaz or others for you?

What are your MOST used/most functional colors that will paint a really good variety of designs? Do you tend to use more darker shades or lighter ones of blue/purple/green?

What do you all use the Kryolan Silber and Bronze for the most? More accents or actual designs?

I have some DFX... but still have Wolfe in my kit. I was given a DFX sampler palette... enough to test it! And I take it with me when I travel. I don't actually have any in my working kit... yet.

I have all the Wolfe in my kit that I listed.

As far as shades of blue/purple/green...

You need a green suitable for Hulk, TMNT, leaves and dragons ... so a mid to kelly green sort of shade. I've got Snaz Grass Green and Funky Foxes Bright Green.

Blue - I like the Sparkle Blue and Turquoise for all sort of things. I use a mid-blue (sort of a light royal blue) a lot for dragons and butterflies.

Purple - use Sparkle Lilac and Electric purple more than other purples.

Kryolan Interferenz Bronze - is pretty much used for lips and unicorn horns, scales and sometimes swirls.

Interferenz Silver/Silber is, I am afraid, hoarded!! It's too nice to waste on kids! Rolling Eyes It's great rubbed dry over top of blacks or darker colours.. I rub it on dry to use as "eye shadow" too on lots of adult designs. It is "soft" enough to pick up on a sponge without using water.

Ok, So my Paradise teaser palettes finally ran out. (and by the way - the turquoise in that palette broke my face out!)

I've recently bought Snaz Dark Orange (that I love), Snaz Dark Green, Wolfe Metallic Yellow (I used as FSU Gold), Snaz Rust Brown (used as garnet), Wolfe White and Wolfe Black - both great for line work. Now I'm on to building my kit and would like your opinion. Is there anything that you see missing that YOU would add? Delete? I am trying to stick with snaz because I plan on making some split cakes and want to use like paint. This list was composed taking in everyone's considerations and Shannon's list off of her reference page........ANY tips, tricks, opinions, suggestions are GREATLY appreciated!


Snazaroo - Bright Red
Snazaroo - Ochre Yellow
Snazaroo - Grass Green
Snazaroo - Purple
Snazaroo - Sparkle Pink
Snazaroo Sparkle Blue
Wolfe Brothers Hydracolor - Brown
Wolfe Brothers Hydracolor - Metallic Silver
Snazaroo - White (This is for making split cakes I have Wolfe White for Line Work)
Kryolan - Interferenze Bronze
*Reminder: Already Have the Following*
Snazaroo - Dark Green
Snazaroo - Dark Orange
Snazaroo- Rust Brown
Snazaroo-Gold
Wolfe Bros - White
Wolfe Bros - Black
Wolfe Bros - Metallic Yellow

Great question!!! Thanks for asking it!!!!!

Lana and I started out with Snaz, then my husband bought me the DFX small palates for Christmas and I was hooked! I got prof sizes of all the essential colors, and I pretty much work from those, and use the sampler of metallics for accents. I have decided I need a better brown, a softer colored orange, and a lavender, and I want to try some Interferenze. Soo pretty!

I know I would like DFX cause I'm partial to Wolfe. Except - the wolfe black has irritated my skin on occasion. Not bad, just a little sensitive to it I guess. I'm doing a lot of daycares and smaller kids.... 4 or 5 and I use Snaz toy safety rating as a security blanket. LOL

Personally - I am partial to the Wolfe.....and long to try the DFX.
