What kind of paint are you using for your Bad Bob's Custom Motors cars?

Wooden Toy Cars - Bad Bob's Custom Motors
Bad Bob's Custom Motors

I use a variety of paints from various sources. I like the acrylic house paints the best.  All of the paints are nontoxic when cured.

I like to use a white primer to seal the wood and make the colors pop. In this case, I am using Zinsser B-I-N shellac based primer.

I prefer to use an airbrush for painting toys but, I have to paint outdoors, and the weather where I live does not cooperate, and I have to wait or use a brush. I used an airbrush for these wooden toy cars. My airbrush is a Badger Anthem 155.

I prefer the acrylics over all other paints. They clean up easy cover well and are readily available in a vast array of colors.  To clean I flood with water to get rid of the bulk of the paint. The remaining paint is easily removed with ammonia-based cleaners such as window cleaner. I use household$ ammonia to remove dried paint.

The following were used to paint these wooden toy car bodies.
