Illustration Colors are Createx’ s flagship airbrush paints designed for refined atomization and flow through the smallest of airbrush tip sizes, at low psi settings, without a stippled pattern when faded from a tint to a saturated color.
Illustration Colors dry to a matte finish. Illustration Colors, Bloodline and Lifeline are transparent paints with no filler added and made with a saturated pigment volume for coverage out of the bottle. Illustration Opaque Colors have a higher pigment volume to create a more saturated color for increased coverage compared to other Illustration Colors. All Illustration Colors color-types are made with the same resin, perform similarly, and are collectively herein referred to as “Illustration Colors”.
Soft Erasing Illustration Colors are unique in that the final cure is delayed for 48 hours, during which the colors may be “soft erased” for subtle manipulation. After this open cure window, Illustration Colors cure to a hard coating.
Originally developed by artist Dru Blair, Illustration Colors work excellent for some unique reductive techniques and manipulation of the paint while it cures. For exceptional airbrush technique instruction, visit schoolofrealism.com.
When mixed with 4030 Balancing Clear or 4050 UVLS Gloss Clear, Illustration Colors do not soft erase.
