I am looking forward to trying this line of high-flow Golden colours. They have a number of transparent colours, but no zinc white, specifically.  The transparent grey looks interesting though.  See also this thread.

I can't believe this thread is 7 years old...

Gary,
The second link you provide takes us to the same thing as the first. Got a good link?
  :D

I can't believe I still haven't finished this boxcar 4.5 years later!

Philip,
Hope you at least have a second coupler on it.  :lol:

I've used http://www.goldenpaints.com/products/colors/fluid and they work well with some thinning.

I have a tube of the heavy acrylic, not the high flow. I may be thinning more than others.

Amazing to think this thread is almost 8 years old!

After playing around with high build Acrylics in tubes, I was wonder if this might be a better solution for fade and dirt washes:

From the description, the paints are have extremely fine pigments which should work well when reduced. And no fillers that would "glop" up like I had been experiencing before.

I've used these with success.  Zince white and transparent red oxide so far.

Good to know.  Feel free to post some examples.   I myself have not had the airbrush out in probably two years now.  Someday...
