    We still use a fair amount of Behr of the more budget priced production runs...that may change in the future but it still works for us...and you can't beat the color spectrum and the price...I recommend it for all the hobby and enthusiast...once you graduate? You will want to expand your horizons...

    It's not the ultimate answer but it IS a cheap paint to play around with if you are starting out...

    I haven't played with water based yet so this might help me learn without wasting a ton of expensive paint, love Jays's stuff but you have to have some waterborne laying around for obvious reasons that need not be stated.. it starts with an E and ends with an A and there's a P in there somewhere lol

    What do you use to thin it out to shoot with and how much of the thinning agent do you use?

    Water...It's that thing you brush your teeth with once a week...

    Water? No Way!! Wow, learn something new everyday, i was only brushing my teeth once a month... :D But seriously, I should have stated that I know water can be used, but I had the guy at the paint store tell me about a thinner that you could use also and I wanted to know if that's what other people were using. Also, about how much water; like 10%, 25% or to what consistency because I was also told that to much water/thinner would make it lose some of its adhesion property.

    Should of clarified, that was a L-) moment….
  • ShafferShaffer Posts: 196Member ✭✭✭
    The thinner does make it lose adhesion. I tested it for a company that wanted to use interior colors to match cabinetry. I was not comfortable with the durability using ratios they provided. With that being said, I had more success with our own numbers, but ultimately, still not what I want to put out there.

    Thanks! I understand.

    Very insightful...good post...this is what we found also...ok but not the ultimate answer...

    Trial and error works best...too many variables since all guns spray differently with a variety of tip sizes...just my two cents.
  • MasterjqxMasterjqx Posts: 990Member ✭✭✭
    i spray with a 1.4 for the water base paints.. works great for me

    what clears can be used on this?
  • MasterjqxMasterjqx Posts: 990Member ✭✭✭
    i use nason automotive
  • blackbeardblackbeard Posts: 169Member ✭✭
    I thought only automotive paint should be used. Is that because it is more durable than interior paints?

    Anything automotive grade has always worked for us...haven't had any failures yet...

    Would you use flat exterior if your were going to mess around with the water base paints?
  • MasterjqxMasterjqx Posts: 990Member ✭✭✭
    yeah, exterior flat, paint and primer in one, its just a starter paint to get the feel of dipping.
