For airbrush we recommend Amsterdam Acrylic Ink. This ink has already been diluted and can be applied immediately, without thinning.
Amsterdam Inks have been tested with a 0.2 mm needle. In the colours white and metallic, the pigment parts are larger and we therefore recommend a 0.4 mm needle to prevent jamming.
Oil colours form a greasy layer and are therefore not suitable as a ground for acrylic colours.
Brushes made of firmer types of hair are the most commonly used for acrylic painting.
- Hog hair brushes can hold a lot of thick paint, but have a brush stroke that is too inaccurate for working in fine detail. What's more, with water hog hair brushes become a little less resilient.
- Synthetic (selected filament) brushes are not affected by water and are suitable for both thick and strongly diluted paint as well as fine details.
Acrylic colour brushes have a long handle so that sufficient distance can be maintained from the painting.
