The first in our line of 70’s inspired colors! A new warm metallic yellow that show up as a lovely smoky gold over a black base primer and a deep warm yellow over white that is truly… the Bee’s Knees (If we do say so ourselves.)

Example images are shown over a white base. 

 

Turbo Dork paints are made of a mixture of pigments suspended in an acrylic medium plus additives that make them fast-drying, water-soluble when wet, and water-resistant when dry. The Metallics contain pigments and small mica flakes that create a sparkling effect on the paint surface making it look like metal.

Formulated for airbrush use, but may also be hand brushed.


How to use

  1. Shake a lot. Like more than you think.
  2. Make sure the tip is clear before you squirt. Our bottles feature removable dropper tips, this allows you to save unused paint by pouring it back into the bottle.
  3. Use the appropriate base coat colour. The bottles say which base coat is best for said colour. But generally, most colorshifts and metallics look best over a black undercoat.
  4. Apply in 2-4 thin layers. Do not try to apply in one layer. Do not allow the paint to cool. Allow each coat to fully dry before applying the next.
  5. Turboshifts may be layered over each other, but not mixed together when wet.
  6. Gloss washes work best on Turbo Dork paints. Finish with a satin or gloss varnish to protect if desired.
