    Direct from the createx website:
    "Createx Airbrush Colors work best out of the bottle with a 0.5mm tip-sized airbrush operated @ 40 - 50 PSI. For smaller tip-sizes, lower PSI settings and fine-line detailed artwork, reduce with Createx 5601 Transparent Base"
    I'd be very careful buying from the same retailer again, they clearly didn't ask the right questions before supplying product.
    If in doubt, always ask here first, someone will pop up reasonably quickly to guide you in the right direction.

    with a bit of transparent base, you could probably get the plain colour to work through the .4 needle, the pearl would probably like a .5 just due to the pigment size.

    This will at least get you practising and not wasting paint, or if you wish to sell it then that is an option too. If you have unopened bottles and the receipt you may be able to get the shop to refund the cost if you want to change it to something more suitable like Createx wicked detail.

    If you have unopened bottles take it back and ask for a refund. If you told him what you wanted to use the paint for, take it all back anyway as he has mis sold it to you :(

    Just use it on t-shirts and caps and so on. I'm sure you can paint some nice fishes on shirts.

    Should be good on wood as well so will be great for lures, probably not the detail. Use the larger nozzle.

    just remember that when ever you change the size of needle make sure you have the matching nozzle to suit.

    Hansa I don't particularly know but I am a long time Golden user and it is made for the airbrush by them. Should be a good paint. I might track some down myself. Double check if you are going to use it on lures that you can put a solid clear coat over the top.

    Yes, i want to get two strate of resin, to get protected the lure.

    I dont want only painting the lure, day by day my passion for airbrush becomes more and more large, and i want to get better my work on paper. :)
