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
5608 Illustration Base, Wicked W100 Reducer or Auto Air 4011 Flash
Reducer. For more application information, visit our website’s
