Let’s see, there is half-hitch, figure-eight, bowline, sheepshank, and of course, Gordian.

Gordian Knot is a dark green that is reminiscent of 70's British Racing Green, but also acts as our spiritual successor to the late great Emerald Nightmare. Gordian Knot rises above its namesake, and is far more than an unsolvable puzzle. 

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.
