    I'm working on a custom and I wanted to paint with a color known as Sunrise Yellow. I looked online for the paint but haven't found acrylic versions. All I could find was the Creatix Airbrush version.

    Is it possible to paint Airbrush paint with a normal brush? or do I have to get an airbrush to do it?

    If no, do you know of a brand of acrylic paint that has Sunrise Yellow?

    Or is there a way to mix acrylic paint to make it? And so, what colors do I need to make it?

    Thanks in advanced;

    man dude... airbrush paint is pretty thin... I would suggest going to a hobby store and looking at the colors minus the computer screen! If I am not mistaken Sunshine yellow has a pearl... a pearl is best used with an airbrush...

    do you know of a way to mix some non-airbrush acrylics to make a color similar to sunrise yellow? Like what colors can be mixed for it?

    Well, if it's the GM "sunrise yellow", you could always go to the dealership & see if they can order a scratch fix bottle for you. They're normally as big as a short & chubby marker and have a paintbrush & pen tip.

    That way, you should have the same colour in both forms (airbush & physical brush?) without needing to sacrifice one option for the other.
