    Etac is good paint but yeah you knew the but was coming , It is not as easy to get as golden high flow (10 minute drive down town) or Createx Wicked (5 minute drive) I have to order it and wait.
    HOK,PPG ,SEM and a few other brands of urethane is about 7 minutes away , So why would I want to wait on shipping?
    While the paint sprays well , I am not big on having to order it and wait , So I buy local. That and it would cause me to be more mindful of how much of each color I have on hand, Buying local allows me to if I run out of burnt umber I can pop over and pick up some more :D
    But if you want to try E'tac http://usairbrush.com/ is about the only place I know to order it.
    But like Paul said picking at tip dry becomes habit even when you do not have tip dry LOL

    But paints I have tried ,
    Createx all the lines they have,
    Golden fluid colors and Golden High flow
    E'tac and efx
    Trident (to costly to want to use for us in the USA)
    Jaquard
    Com-art
    mainly pretty much any paint that is kind of designed for airbrushing on the water based side.
    Favorite paint to paint with HOK , Mainly any urethane but I do have a area set up in my big garage to spray it safely .

    Outstanding advice from everyone. Thank you

    Btw, you will neve4 guess what I’ve been doing the last few hours?

    The wife want to clear coat her pour painting projects...I told her I’d teach her how to do it. Good lord she’s a damn natural with a mini gun. Set her up with the lph80 and some polycrylic she was having a blast! Then taught her how to clean them after use...yea, she didn’t have so much fun then. Lol

    Quite right, they would be constantly fighting over who gets the airbrush.

    Beautiful dogs :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
