Trident Water Based Airbrush Colors

What is TRIDENT?

TRIDENT is a revolutionary new water based airbrush paint that provides premium performance and is a joy to paint with. It was designed with the highest expectations, with current standards of other water based paint being unacceptable, TRIDENT was to perform as well as any top performing urethane; and it does! Another fantastic feature is its multi-surface application. It is suitable for most substrates including hard surfaces such as metal and sealed timber, medium surfaces like paper and board through to fabric and textiles. TRIDENT is made by artists for artists.

Why use TRIDENT?

Developed over six years, this paint performs just as airbrush paint should, providing great coverage and stability over larger areas while also providing exacting details from the finest guns including super fine 0.18mm nozzles.

"There were no water based airbrush paints that could perform without causing major stress and dramas when painting. This is why we developed TRIDENT and we are very proud of what we have created. This paint actually does what it says it will, and isn't a case of 'well for a water based it's not bad', it's a case of 'This is how a paint should perform; water based or not'"
