Oh my, I have been on WC for years and never knew there was an airbrush forum!
So excited. Usually I post in oils. Years ago I posted in acrylics. I know nothing about airbrush, so hopefully you can help me out.
This is what the ceiling and walls of my sons bedroom will look like when painted:
Because of the smooth gradations I want to use spray paint. Specifically Montana MNT 94. Or MNT water based paints if I can't use the oil based MNT 94s. Does anyone have any experience with these, and any advise?
Additionally I also want to paint the stars, hundreds of thousands. No way this is possible with a brush. Montana makes a glitter and a hologram glitter that look perfect for this! Spray a little and you get thin area of stars, spray in more layers and you get more stars. However, I am very confused about wether I can paint in oil paint on top of these stars. It is very important to me that I am able to use oils on top.
From the description of the glitter and hologram glitter it says "For best results we recommend applying it over Montana GOLD, Shock Black SH9000 or a dark colored underground that has had time to cure, allowing contrast to occur for the glitter particles to reflect on. The Hologram Glitter spray’s clear base can easily be covered with many common lacquer types. We recommend using it in conjunction with Montana GOLD, Montana ACRYLIC markers and conventional acrylic paints. (Not compatible with Synthetic based paints!)."
This is very confusing. "Montana GOLD" are acrylic based. So I guess this means I must use acrylic based paint under the spray, not oil? And that I also must use acrylic paints on top? But it says no synthetic paints; and acrylic paints are synthetic paints, no? Very confusing. And it implies only acrylic on top. Why would it not be possible to paint with traditional oil paints on top of acrylic? Normally this is ok.
I have painted a room before, but only in acrylic and oil, no airbrush: https://www.artallison.com/room/
