Part 3: Airbrush Colours
Textile Airbrush Colors by Medea
Medea Textile Airbrush Colors are designed specifically for use with the airbrush, but can also be applied with a paintbrush. These pre-reduced colors are available in both opaque and transparent formulas.
There are 27 rich, dense colors in opaque that spray smoothly and resist clogging. Textile heavily-pigmented opaque paints produce brilliant results and accurate four-color separations when reproduced. They are available in 1, 4, 16, and 32 ounce and gallon sizes. Also available are six neutral grays, along with warm and cool additives, for black and white photographic retouching or illustration.
The Textile transparent colors are a perfect match for the Textile opaque colors. Eighteen non-fading, permanent transparent colors are available. These are intermixable with the opaques, can be worked over top for glazing techniques, and are available in the same sizes as the opaques.
Medea Airbrush Cleaner is used for cleaning the airbrush when using these or any other water-soluble paints. It is ready to use, fast-acting, odorless and environmentally safe. Remember?always spray in a well-ventilated area whenever using airbrush paint or cleaner.
TIP: Medea Airbrush Cleaner can also be used as a liquid eraser for Medea Textile Colors. When working on a smooth surface (hot press), Textilet opaque and transparent colors can be wiped off with Medea Airbrush Cleaner. Use a little cleaner on a cotton swab, paper towel or soft rag to clean off large areas of paint or wipe down to the white illustration board for bright highlights. Practice this technique; you?ll find it helpful.
