    I'm not too sure, but just to throw you another idea, have you tried FW inks by Daler Rowney, they're Acrylic but apparently permanent when dry. Might be worth a try too?

    No problem, I think you can even put Eurethane clearcoats over the top too so really durable.

    as Jordo stated
    Createx airbrush colors are aimed at textile/hobby work..... for large nozzle sizes ( .5) and higher PSI,
    A lot here bought the 'airbrush colors' thinking they were doing the right thing. (we quickly realised our mistake, but wasted $$ ! )

    If you can get createx wicked / wicked detail / illustration range from hobby lobby at the discounts you mentioned then thats what I'd be doing if you are keen on Createx.

    There are quite a few other brands around but the createx seems to be the easiest to source, but also has a steep learning curve.

    If you do go with createx then make sure you get a large bottle of the 4012 reducer and the 4008 restorer (for deep cleaning your brush, its reusable so a 4oz bottle will last for ages)

    All great info, thank you Jack. What paints do you go for? I think I am going to snag these Wicked if my bros wife will get them for me. He is coming to my town this weekend so it's all very convenient timing.

    I already have some thinner and cleaner so I think I am good there.

    I use mostly Createx Illustration but I do have E’tac which I also like bery much and I’ve just bough some Trident that i’d Planning on trying some time this year

    Just make sure you use the right reducer/thinner for the paint you are using. Using water or other reducer/thinner with Createx can cause clotting and frustration.
