Airbrush Paint Review – Createx Airbrush Colors

Createx Airbrush Colors are the number one, most widely used and trusted professional airbrush paint in the world. Made with light-fast pigments, durable resins and quality ingredients, Createx works on fabric, wood, leather, canvass, plastics, aluminum, metals, ceramic, clay, poster board, brick, plaster, latex, glass and more. Colors are water-based, non-toxic and meet ASTM D-4236 standards. Colors include Opaque, Transparent, Fluorescent, Pearlized and Iridescent Colors.

Createx Airbrush Colors are designed for permanent results with a soft-hand feel on fabrics. Colors cure with the assistance of heat after drying. The use of heat to cure colors is one of the main differences between Createx Airbrush Colors and Wicked & Auto Air Colors which cure to a much stronger film with air drying alone (referred to as self-cross linking). Createx are made with exterior-grade (automotive) pigments allowing them to withstand prolonged exposure to direct, outdoor light without fading. For maximum permanence, a top-coat should be applied over the paint after curing.

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 either Createx 5601 Transparent Base or Createx 5608 Illustration Base.

    I use Createx often in my work. I have painted everything from motorcycles, vehicles, batting helmets, and more with it. The paint sticks well on a properly cleaned surface. Takes clear coat nicely. Also great for T shirts.

    The only thing I cut the score for from a perfect 10 to a 9 for was the use of Black and White. I find I have to listen to my airbrush and watch the tip much closer. These two colors tend to spit and sputter a little more often than all the other colors.

    Keeping the colors thinned and the air pressure light, that tends to help, but still get an occasional sputter.
