    Hi and Welcome from Devon U.K.,what is it you want to paint on as wicked will do just about every surface and createx is mainly for textiles.

    at the moment just paper as I literally just got my airbrush yesterday. I have some paint that came with it as I bought a second hand compressor it came with two brushes but they don't seem to clever,so have two new ones coming tomorrow. The paint I have is com art which I am having ago with. I think it will be mainly wood not really sure which way to go yet , have thought about t-shirts also

    I have a similar sp35 multipurpose double action and a new professional suction gravity feed double action. I have just had another go with one of the brushes after giving it a clean at practicing dots and decided to have a go at an eye and must say I am rather pleased with my effort haha

    yup com art is great paint but not as suited for harder surfaces. wicked in my opinion is no good at all for illustration /fine art but just my opinion, there are better around for that purpose but for all round wicked will serve you well once you get used to the reduction necessary and the dreaded never ending tip dry.
    etac private stock is great for hard surfaces , and etac efx is (again in my opinion) one of the best for fine art

    If you use the web version of this forum, under the the message box where you write your posts you see three buttons, the middle one says "upload a file" simply click that and you'll the choices you have on your tablet, select the appropriate one such as your gallery where your pictures are stored then select the image you want to upload and the rest should be clear.
