Createx Illustration Colors

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.

Water-based Acrylic Resin, Lightfast Pigments, Archival Grade Paint

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.(When mixed with 4030 Balancing Clear or 4050 UVLS Gloss Clear, Illustration Colors do not soft erase.)

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 www.schoolofrealism.com.

Createx Illustration Opaque Colors

logo

Vivid Opaque colors have a higher pigment Volume to create a more saturated color for increased coverage compared to other Illustration Colors. Colors dry to a matte finish.

Designed for refined atomization through any airbrush tip-size, large or small, operated at mid to lower psi settings. Colors flow when faded from full saturation to tint strength without a "grainy" or stipulated over-spray.

  • Colors have a delayed curing cycle during which colors erase easily and after 48 hours cure to a hard coating.
  • Illustration Colors may be sprayed direct from the bottle or thinned with 4011 Reducer 5% - 20% Airbrush; 5% - 10% for Spray-gun. For hard-surface application, mix 4030 Balancing Clear or 4050 UVLS Gloss Clear with Illustration Colors for an excellent automotive transparent color.
