Krylon Short Cuts Enamel Paint Review:
Krylon Short Cuts Enamel Paint is something I found at my local hardware store. They come in 1 ounce bottles at a price point of just under $4.00, Thats a good price when comparing to model paints that run that much for 1/2 ounce or so.
These paints are also quite a bit thicker than say Model Master enamels, they seem even a bit thicker than Humbrol. So they go farther for airbrushing as you have to thin them more. I have used these on several model cars and have had no trouble with them. I find they airbrush well using testor's thinner. They just need to be well thinned for airbrush use.
There is not a large selection of colors to choose from so they are a bit limited in their model building use, I mainly use them for Scale Auto's and Truck's.
Tech Spec's are Dry to Touch in 30 minutes, and Dry to Handle in 3 hours.
For use on: Wood, Metal, Plastic, Craft Foam, Paper Mache, Glass, Plaster, Ceramic, Fabric, Paper, and Wicker.
The available colors are as follows
- Gold Leaf
- Chrome Metallic
- Gloss Red Pepper
- Gloss Ocean Blue
- Gloss Espresso Brown
- Gloss Sun Yellow
- Gloss Hot Pink
- Gloss Leaf Green
- Gloss Hunter Green
- Gloss Glow Orange
- Gloss White
- Gloss Black
- Gloss Bonnet Blue
- Gloss True Taupe
- Gloss Forever Blue
- Gloss Iris
- Flat White
- Flat Black
These colors also come in a 3 ounce aerosol spray can.
A lot of these colors are good for model Car's and the whites and blacks can be used for about anything.
I like these and they are useful for airbrushing as long as you remember to thin them well. I like using them in my Badger 105 Patriot.
