AK interactive Paints
Posted by steveracer on Sunday, March 1, 2020 8:18 AM

Does anybody have any experience with AK Interactive acrylics?  My magazine arrived today and there is a full page ad for environmentally friendly acrylics targeted toward us car and truck modelers.  I have NOT had positive experiences with water/alcohol based acrylics for A surface finishes for bodies, chassis, etc.  Small parts, OK, but I am reluctant to try an unproven product and go all in.

I am intrigued by this advertisement, as it would relieve the stress I get from my wife, who is strongly affected by lacquer and enamel solvent based paints when I not only spray them in my vented to the outside spray booth, but when I clean brushes as well.

I believe these are new formulas, but has anyone tried these?  Had success or failures?

Thanks in advance.

I don't have any experience with that brand, but I've been using craft paints for about a year now, it takes quite a bit of experminting to get what works, get some and go at it.. Good luck.

I am surprised that 175 folks have viewed this thread, yet not a single person has tried this brand of paint.  With the full page ad in the magazine, either someone has to give it a shot or someone from the manufacturer/supplier/importer could chime in here and provide some insight, no?
