Transparent Acrylics for Airbrushing

I'm sure I'm just new to the party and they've been around forever but I didn't find out until recently that you can get acrylic based transparent paints for airbrushing (I previously thought you could only get transparents with solvent based paints).

So I brought a set of 10 this week, COM ART colours - Transparent Kit E. The set comes with a decent selection of colours:

  • Bright Red
  • Orange
  • Cadmium Yellow
  • Emerald Green
  • Kelly Green
  • Ultramarine
  • Royal Blue
  • Violet
  • Sienna Brown
  • Black

I've not tried them out yet but these should greatly help with doing subtle shading effects, especially on the Avatar piece that I'm currently working on.
