    what would be the best paint? I have utrecht artists' color acrylic would that be good. I use it when I do paintings, but I just wanted to know what you guys think.

    i don't know the brand you are talking about. as far as what brand is the best will depend on who you talk to. my preference is tamiya acrylics, reaper acrylics, testors model master oil base and acrylics.

    i also tell anyone who asks me to learn both oil and acrylic paints because there are benefits to both :D

    utrects aren't great paints to begin with. I used to get those supplied at college for painting classes in the school store, and even our professor recommended going to Pearl to buy Liquitex(?) or something like that.

    Those type of paints, whether in tubes or large bottles aren't intended for plastics nor detailing. I tried some liquitex and it peels right off.
