Turbo Dork Colorshift and Metallic Paints


Can I use Turbo Dork Colorshift and Metallic paints in an airbrush?

Yes, you'll want to add a little thinner or flow improver as the formula. 


Are Turbo Dork Colorshift and Metallic paints different to other acrylic paints?

Turbo Dork provides a range of gorgeous colours and colorshift effects which can be used like any other acrylic metallic paint. Like all acrylics, it's best to apply multiple thin layers, allowing to dry between applications. As the paint is formulated for airbrush, you'll find the paint will pool if you apply too much at once. Add a little paint to your palette at a time.


My paint has separated in the bottle, is this normal?

Yes, the pigments don't stay in suspension for a long time, so you'll find that they settle in the bottle. Give them a good shake before use and then shale some more. 


What are colorshift paints?

Colorshift paints are made with tiny glass-like flakes that work like millions of small prisms within the paint. Depending on how the flakes are made, different colours are refracted or reflected in the light. In laymen terms, this means that colorshift paint changes colour depending on what light you are viewing it under, and what angle you are holding it to that light.

For best results, we recommend using an airbrush, particularly on large surfaces. If you are hand brushing, be sure to paint in the same direction to ensure you apply smooth layers and so the prisms align properly.
