I know that the most common paints used for customs are (in no particular order): Testors Tamiya Citadel Games Workshop Krylon Fusion What I am curious about are other paints that are equally as good that can be used as substitutes. Also, is there a list of paints to stay away from altogether? I checked the tutorials forum, but didn't find anything pertaining to paint brands. My apologies if I somehow overlooked it. Current Paint: Delta Ceramcoat is pretty good judging from my recent experience with it. I only bought gray and white for priming and color mixing/lightening purposes. The gray I've used thus far dries quickly, adheres to plastic very well, and the coverage is good even in thin coats. Definitely a cheap, yet effective alternative. I may be tempted to try some of the actual colors since my Testors supply is dwindling.
