    Evening air brusher
    I have bought the Golden high flow kit
    also the Wicked metallic kit

    I would like to start mixing my own colours is there a transparent airbrush paint in PANTON YELLOW, CYAN, AND MAGENTA.
    Also I have found a paint mixing bible that looks really good. The main reason I would like a yellow orca but the nearest colour in the high flow oxidised yellow I think

    Do not forget black...you will be mixing what is a 4 color process. CMYK...K means black and it is a true black....
    I have spent the last 35 years as a commercial printing press operator. My bible was the Pantone Matching System. It is really different for me when I start mixing and color matching using airbrush paint, but the principles are the same.

    you're not looking for trans thinners, you need to look for Golden transparent medium or as Husky said, you can use Golden airbrush medium, neither medium thins you're paint, it makes it transparent without losing viscosity, for thinning just use water.
    This is what you need

    Yes;
    Createx illustration CMY colors.

    I doubt they are the same as pantone versions...... but probably as close as youll get to process colors in AB paint.

    think about this stuff like this:
    reducer is reducer no sc-fi here.
    transparent medium or base or whatever is called at different color dealers is color without color.

    so for example:
    u take red color and add 10% transparent base = 10% more transparent color - but you didn't reduce that color
    add 30% transparent base = 30 more transparent color - you need more passes then if you add only 10% to get the same saturation - and you still didn't reduce that color.

    in both cases you still need to add reducer to get good flow with your airbrush.

    Createx transparent base plays nice with golden high flow and golden fluid colors.

    This stuff is what you add to the golden Fluid acrylic (not the Golden High Flow) to make it suitable for the airbrush.

    Yup... remember, that is not a reducer... it is for making the Golden High Flow Opaque transparent and the transparent more so. :)
