I have used all of them and like them all...Some brands carry nicer hues of color than others...I like Americolor Pearl sheens as Lucks are too thick and can clog the airbrush...I like Bakery crafts Hawaiian Blue better than Americolor Sky Blue...

I've used them all- and there are non I hate. All of them work well. But for certain colors, like Black, it's americolor (because it has a better undertone)
Red Red, americolor, and the americolor Royal blue- because it is a true cool blue. Americolor browns are warm brown- I like that too.

Chefmaster I use the skin tone & white.
Chefmaster blacks are really green undertones, and all their blues are too warm to make a royal.

I was ordering singles it would probably be americolors I'd order first..

Also try this on the lids- teflon pipe tape (the thin plastic stuff you get to wrap around the threads of a pipe when you put the shower head on.) It helps keep the darn lids from leaking under the sides.

Thanks for this tip!! I have two colors that leak like crazy... same brand as all the others but they must just be a little thinner and get out. Will definitely do this tomorrow.
