Question Anyone know if you can airbrush Pebeo Fantasy Paints?

Hi everyone! I recently got a couple of the Pebeo Prisme Fantasy paints to play around with and experiment different techniques but the main experiment I wanted to try was to airbrush them. However upon reading the container, they almost sound like they are a form of oil paint? "Clean up with mineral spirits"?

So, 1) Are these safe to run through an airbrush? 2) Will they ruin my airbrush? 3) Will they clean up with airbrush cleaner/acetone/rubbing alcohol or do I have to run mineral spirits through?

Sorry I don't know, try contacting the manufacture and see what they have to say.
If I had to guess I would think they might not work.
I watched a short video of this, it looks super thick.
I wouldn't chance it.

My guess is that once you reduce these sufficiently to flow through your airbrush, you will lose the "wow" factor. Plus, the pigment size will probably immediately clog the nozzle. What airbrush are you using? You will not permanently damage the airbrush and a thorough cleaning immediately after use will fix any issues. Airbrushes are designed for both water based & solvent based paints. Just don't use anything corrosive. A respirator would be a must. Always think personal safety when atomizing (it's what airbrushes do to liquids) anything...

I think the suspension of the liquids would be lost by the airbrush so they wouldn't do the cool effects shown.
