    Posted in Beginners section, but will post here too. What brand paint does everyone use and what colors to paint their turkey heads? I have decided to use lacquer based paint. Ordered a badger krom air brush and passhe(sp) compressor from dixiearts.

    I use Lifetone and Polytranspare water base paints. I know that most will probably say to use lacquer, but I choose to use water based and my heads come out convincing in color and I believe the health risks are less. Anyway that's what I use.
