I love pax! Made up a batch for my Avatar costume from 50/50 PA and Chromacryl! Worked great when I was patient and gave it time to dry- when I tried to hurry the process it went clumpy and the talc ended up in thick lumps rather than a thin coat. Lesson- be patient and cautious. Have not tried adding liquiset but may give it a trial next time.

One big error on my part- I thought the talc sticking to it would make it brighter but the true colour of the paint came through after a while. This meant that my (pre-painted) tail was lighter than the rest of my body. Will have to do a proper test run next time.

Best part was being able to wear the paint several days in a row! It was like having a second skin.
