Response to Painting a vinyl figure

You need to use acrylic paints ONLY! Anything else leeches the oils out of the vinyl
and your model will not dry! I use Apple Barrel Colors by Plaid. They're craft paints available at Michael's and A.C. Moore. Be careful as they airbrush well, but some of the light colors don't cover as well in one coat. As long as they're acrylic paints, you shouldn't have any problems. You can also speed dry acrylics and keep right on painting. Testors Dull Cote works fine over Apple Barrel paints.

By April, my latest DVD, "Figure Model Airbrushing" will be available for $35.00 ppd.

Happy Painting!
