Think outside the box.
Scotch bright pads ,, Find the Dollar store 10 pack red or gray for a 1.00.
I have used rattle can Krylon plastic paint as an adhesion promoter works great Kmart 1.77 a can Same with a affordable flexible clear Krylon tuff plastic clear..

As far as needing big bottle of paint???? I have createx 4 OZ bottle that I still have not ran out of and use a lot. Never thought about having to buy anything bigger. Now if you were talking HOK that is a different story. I seem to go through that faster..

Hobby lobby with 40% off coupon for the Scrape book crystal clear or matt finish ultra low tact contact paper..9 bucks for a 30 foot roll 2 foot wide.
Oh the 9 bucks is not minus the 40% by the way.

I know a lot of women who love to fish and are great cooks .

Guess you just gonna have to move down south to Indiana....

but here is the stuff I use Self-Adhesive Magic Cover Roll | Shop Hobby Lobby Funny how the on line for hobby lobby does not off the same things the store does.
But I have used the spray adhesive and paper trick too works all right except leaves a lot of glue on the piece and you have to use goo gone to clean it up.

the dollar store I go to is named the Dollar tree.
The local Kmart has all the Krylon paint on sell here. But the also have a lot of competition at the location I get mine from.

But I do realize that they stock different items in different stores depending on what they think will sell.

Clowns ...LOL love it. But I did try to help you out, and yes you have only been here a short time but to me you are now a part of the family.
I was not intending to piss you off and no I have never went to school in Michigan , I did instruct some Navy seals and recon Marines in the Great lakes but that was back in the 70's.
Paints , air tanks and the such gets asked about a million times on any paint forum. All we can do is tell you what we use , No magic just hard work and a lot of practice time .
now true story . When I was about 15 I wanted to learn to airbrush but guess what no internet , No one to ask advice form and what few local guys who did airbrush would not tell you anything.. They said learn it like we did and just do it. So now come the golden age of the internet and these wonderful places we call forums where we can talk to people from all over the world. Now air brushing is not as big of secret as it was. Artist are willing to share and teach.
Do I know it all ... Hell No and I never will , Why because art and ideal change daily.
So if I have offended you in anyway , I am truly sorry I did not mean to disrespect you or any other member on this site.
I guess I will just go back to keeping to myself and just read post but never comment due to I hate to think the words I type in fun , offend anyone.

Out.......

Hi Zerrak, I'm so cheap I got money that isn't even in circulation anymore, but can't let go. So tight if I sat on a piece of coal it would turn into a diamond, basically, you got more chance of parting me from my money than splitting an atom with a blunt butter knife. However I can't be your shopping guide cos I don't live in the USofA. What I can tell you though is think outside the box, do you really need all those things, or can you come up with/beg/borrow/steal an alternative. Frisket for example, if you want to make stencils or masks, you can make em out of good old paper and just tape it or even hold it in place, spray adhesive is good to have but if I haven't got the moolah, I manage without. Paint is a bit sucky, it's works out cheaper in the long run to buy a bigger bottle, but I never do. It goes farther than you think, specially if it's well reduced. Scotch brites, you could probably buy in bulk for a cheaper price online, and maybe sell some on to get some money back. I did ask the mother in law to consider not shaving, but I think her stubble is too heavy a grade for rubbing down paint.

#1... You might hit up your local autobody shops. Scotchbrite pads last a long time and most shops throw them out way before they are actually used up. You might be able to claim their throw aways.

#2... If you use a lot of adhesion promoter, it would probably be cheaper to buy it in a quart (provided you have a spray gun). House of Kolor AP01 runs about thirty bucks a quart and goes a long way.

#3... There's actually no such thing as a flexible clear. A flex agent can be added to clear to reduce the possiblity of damaging the paint when installing plastic parts like bumpers; however, the flex agent evaporates with the other chemicals as the paint cures. In other words, there is a window of opportunity when using a flex agent.

#4... There are cheaper alternative paint systems (with automotive urethanes anyway). Check with your local body shop supplier and see what is available in your area.

#5... coastairbrush.com

#6... You left out willing to serve cold beverages to yourself as well as your friends... lol

Hope this helps...

Ok, Zerrak1 where do I begin..... These guys (Mr.Micron and Ranhalen) did nothing wrong here, yes they jacked the thread, but this happens and yes I am guilty for a lot of them, especially with my partners in crime here, lol! But it is all in good fun in hopes to get YOU and everyone else involved in conversation and to answer your questions. You talked about them not being able to take it as they give it, I think you didn't follow suit. You got offended pretty much because you didn't get the answer you were looking for right off the bat and you were completely out I line with the comment ....

"ya know i went to school with to guy who we all call jackers...thing is them to little boy's had a problem with keeping there hand's out of there paint's [or threads as the old folks called em in the day]...did you to ever attend class in michigan;]".

I know you were just playing, I seen the :) but that type joke was out of line. I have known micron for 10 months now, I feel that we are pretty good friends and even I wouldn't even attempt to pull off that joke, that's just the wrong type of comeback. They answered your question. And it really does get monotonous answering the same questions over and over again. Ran did nothing wrong either with his comment about all you need Is your AB and the rest is work. There was nothing wrong with that because its true. He is basically saying you really don't need everything you stated to do this type of art form, at least not enough to make you lose money airbrushing. Granted you do need the adhesion promotor for painting on plastic, and that is the price for it, it sucks but that's it for a rattle can, with that being said you will be amazed at how much you get out of one of those cans. I have painted 20 welding hoods and helmets and the horse painting and the ark painting with the same can. It's not like paint, all you really need with plastic is a light coat then paint. I also have used the plastic krylon paint micron talked about but I think it's $3 a can here, and it works well for small stuff. Frisket, go to coastairbrush or tcpglobal.com and you can get a roll 18 inches wide and about 30 feet long for the same price as the stuff at hobby lobby. Scotch bright pads are at the store. That's all I can tell you because every store has different packages and prices.
Hope this helps with your questions and just think before make a joke of that nature :)

PS. I did not yell at you or even be mean when I said don't bump old threads when I sent you that PM. I was trying help and save you time and frustration of not getting answers from them. If you read it like I was yelling at you then that's all on you. You were bumping threads that go back to the first month of the forum and asking questions to people who I haven't talked to in 8 months.
I said that you should focus your questions on threads that are more recent because it is more likely you will get a response from someone who is still here so that your comments and questions wouldn't go to waist. Also I'm positive I said to read any and every thread all you want, there is lots to learn in there.
Not yelling, I was helping :) so don't PM ran or someone else saying I did that, please. Thanks :)
Hope you stay on and everything will be great again.


Josh
