Hi everyone, I've been customizing since 2007, and I've become comfortable using specific types of hobby paints: Tamiya Acrylics Vallejo Acrylics (Game Color) Citadel Washes/Inks Using these acrylics + a varnish/sealant is pretty standard (as I discovered after I was customizing for about 2 years) among many customizers at Figurerelam.com, and other places. However, the more I read WiP writeups by Transformer-customizers, the more I see Matte Enamel paints (Tamiya and Model Masters seem to be the most used). What's best? I'm about to start painting up some customs (After preping their joints/sanding/etc) using some automotive spray laquers + acyrylics, and I'm worried the paint wont' adhere as well. Is that why most people use enamels? I did one TF custom a few years back using citadel acrylic paints and washes + a matte sealant, and it worked fine - but since it was a Vector Prime, and really had no paint-rub areas to speak of even before prepping - I never had any issues with it. Fast forward 5 years to newer, and more complicated Transformers (DOTM Megatron, for example, with lots of interlocking parts), and I'm curious: Do I need to re-buy my paints in Enamels, or are my Vallejo/Tamiya acrylics OK for TF customs too? Thanks in advance for everyone's input.
