CREATEX: THE ULTIMATE MULTI-SURFACE AIRBRUSH COLOR

Createx ready-to-spray colors are produced using ultra-fine pigments which are homogenized into a unique acrylic base that makes the colors permanent on a variety of surfaces, from t-shirts to metals. Using Createx mediums and additives allows you to control intensity of tone, opaqueness, transparency, adhesion to difficult surfaces, and the type of finish (i.e. glossy or matte). You can custom mix your own colors by adding only drops of liquid Pure Pigment into either the transparent or Opaque Airbrush Mediums. The Pure pigments may be added to any other ready to spray colors for added intensity or to modify the color.
