AHi im new to this site and new to airbrushing, i love the airbrush but wondered the best way to lighten the colour? And best product to use? For example making baby pinks and blues etc.
i use water
AFor pastels perhaps mix with white? I haven't tried this but am buying white to try.
AThankyou ill try this.
maybe white will work but the whites i've gotten aka titanium dioxide are loopy -- they are thick and do not play well with others -- just saying -- i mean it may work like crazy but i hate to clog my brush so i wouldn't try it unless it was specifically for the air brush -- and i still won't use it myself because water works --
otherwise i put water in my cup on the airbrush -- add a drop of air brush color -- spray lightly and it's a pastel -- works for me
A[@]-K8memphis[/@] Have you ever got grey using just the black? I couldn't, all I got was a greeny black.
yes i'm sure i have -- just depends on the type of black --
because we never had a 'grey' color -- only had the black to use to make grey/gray
sure thing -- so who can tell petitecat what brands come out gray rather than green? i mean i've got chefmaster black air brush color and some kroma colors -- but they are 'vintage' old
I've got the Kroma colours too. I just remembered a CC friend told me I should have shaken the bottle before using. Next time I have time to practice I will shake the bottle and see what colour comes out.
white airbrush color, I do it all the time. Yes, make sure you shake it well. Quite frankly, it's the only thing I found useful about white airbrush color. If you don't have white, pearl sheen does the trick to, but of course it leaves a sheen. I use Americolor airbrush color.
while it's rare some people (and i know a couple) are allergic to titanium dioxide and it is not a pretty thing -- tough to diagnose too -- so that's another reason why i avoid it as best i can
AThankyou everyone big help.ill buy some white colour and be sure to shake well
