GarageKitUS TOS Enterprise colors
« on: November 05, 2018, 02:29:38 pm »
Anyone have any experience with these paints?

https://garagekitsuscolors.com/products/categories/trek-colors.html

I picked up the whole lot from a show in Orlando recently, and they aren't living up to expectations.
was hoping to see if anyone managed to find a way to make them usable.
When i was checking them out at the show they seemed to be very thin and alot of separation of pigment.  The rep/owner/salesguy said best to lay them on there side for an hour and shake very well.  i did and the stuff still beads up and separates before it dries on the model.

Emailed him a few days ago and have not gotten any response yet.

From my experience with their paints, you need to shake them REALLY, REALLY well. Having said that, I have a red colour of theirs that always beads up no matter what I do.
