Craig, you need to visit that SEARCH icon there to the left

When you click on it, type in any combination of words such as "deer paint schedule" or "painting deer eyes" or "painting whitetails". There's months worth of reading there and they'll cover all aspects of it, including the most popular choice of paints (lacquer). Good luck.


How did you ever decide to use latex to begin with?

Thats a 1st. I have never heard of anyone trying to use latex paint in an airbrush. George is right about where to find your answer. Another thing you could do is contact Chem Oddities out of St. Louis, MO. They make Lifetone paints there and they will send you paint schedules for just about anything and everything you need. Good Luck. Dan Hudzik


Latex = water based acrylics

I use water based because there are no fumes to deal with, and clean up is easy. It just has to be thin and you need to run the pressure atleast 30psi.
