Hey all,

sorry guys to take your time but I have a real big problem in the moment.

Till now my friend Oliver used normal acryl colors to brush all his Predator costume parts but we found out that the color cracked when he streched the legs or arms so we looked what we could use to color our Predators that the color would not crack. he´s now working on my Big Red Samurai Predator and so I bought Pros-Aid as base ground and also Perma Wet to seal the color. So I thoght maybe it would be better also to buy the original Monster Makers latex paints to piant up my suit.

So Oliver tryed to brush that color today on the first item but wow it did not take 5 minutes and his airbrush gun was complete closed from the color. So we tested the color and found out that these colors are colored real latex.

So what could we do to get these paints to use with an airbrush gun without closeing the spraygun within some minutes???

Or what kind of colors did you guys use to paint your suits???

Greetings Guido

Gone but not forgotten.
Well, the website says they are "concentrated" and recomended for an external mix airbrush. So, if you did not thin them and are using an internal mix airbrush, yep, your gonna have trouble. If I'm not mistaken, and the experts can chime in, they can be thinned with a little water.

Any latex based paints need to be sprayed through an external airbrush like a passche H series or like. To save money next time just pick uo the MM latex paint base and mix with any acrylic paint, even the cheap craft paints as pigment. Most say to use a 50/50 mix, but in all my years i still find that is too much acrylic and can still crack later on. I use about 30-35% acrylic to latex paint base, and i also thin it wih a few drops of acrylic medium and distilled water. never have had a craking issue or clogging issue in years with this mix, and the paint is nice and pigmented. keep your pressure with an external AB and latex based paint at about bet 4o-60psi depending on coverage needed. Hope that helps!

i use monstermakers latex paints. i thin them by just adding a few drops of water into about an ounce. i use an internal mix brush and can get quite a bit done before it clogs on me. but luckily latex paint is super easy to clean out of my brush.
