  • Airbrush colors

    We dare to say that we have the largest range of colors for airbrush painting in Sweden. A well-chosen assortment of colors from the biggest brands and from some not traditionally recognized in airbrushing but which work very well in your sprayer! At you will firstly find an incredibly large range from market leaders Createx Colors. But also colors from Mr. Hobby, Liquitex, Molotow, Montana, MTN, Iwata Medea, Angelus and many others. We sell both loose cans of paint and in different types of sets packaged from 3 up to complete sets with full scales of around 20 colors where also medium such as thinning is included.


    Different types airbrush colors

    Paints can be divided into two main categories when it comes to our airbrush paints: water-based and solvent-based. Both types have their pros and cons like anything else and which one you should use really depends on your preferences.

    • Water-based paint is of course kinder to your health (you should still wear a respirator because spray dust is not good to breathe into the lungs) and to the environment, is easier to clean up if you get it on something it shouldn't be and has a slower drying time.


    • A solvent-based paint dries faster, has a better durability as it is and generally has better coverage.

    Airbrush colors and their different finishes and degree of coverage

    You can then see colors divided into subcategories based on finish and degree of coverage:

    • Opaque - Opaque colors with high pigment volume. Createx Opaque and Wicked Opaque are two good water based varieties and Mr Hobby has a solvent based alternative.


    • Transparent - A transparent color allows almost all light to pass through it. A layer of some transparent colors is barely visible, but the more layers you apply, the more it comes out. Many airbrush artists work by creating a black/white image with opaque colors and then coloring with transparent colors as they are not visible on top of the black. Createx have very high quality transparent colors in several series including Illustration transparent and their regular transparent series specially developed for textiles.


    • Metallic - A metallic paint has small metallic paint particles that give the shimmering results. Gold, silver, bronze and other metallic colors can be found in Createx Metallic series such as Pearl-Flaked or Schmincke Aero Color Effect.


    • Pearlized effect - Colors with a pearl effect give a shimmering finish, and change appearance depending on the angle of the light. Createx Pearlized is a pearlescent color for airbrush.


    • Fluorescent - Fluorescent colors has a substance that absorbs light and lights up when illuminated with a UV light source. These often cover a little worse, so it is recommended to apply on a white base.


    • Candy - Candy colors are intermediate colors that are always applied over a base color. Simply put, candy is basically a clear coat that is tinted with a color (and sometimes contains a metallic or pearl flake) to give it transparent properties. Candy₂O from Createx Colors is a really good Candy that can be combined with a range of mediums and/or colors to achieve anodized, glittery or other brilliant effects.


    Paint on different materials with airbrush paint

    Another aspect is to check which material you are going to paint. Paint applied by airbrush, whether water-based or not, basically covers all surfaces well considering how finely it finely distributes the paint particles, but it is still recommended to look at which options are better for a specific material and how you prep it.
