|Monster Kolor is Awesome|
A follow up, and mea culpa to this post: How Not to Use Monster Kolor. I bought an airbrush a few months back, and it's completely changed my view of MonsterKolor. The paint was designed for an airbrush, and it is the finest airbrush paint I have found. No thinning required, sprays smooth and consistent right from the bottle. I've tried other airbrush paints as well, and nothing I've used even comes close.

Monster Kolor is almost too easy. I've been knocking out custom toys that actually look decent, and feature effects (color change, pearls, auto-paint worthy metallics) that I couldn't even approximate with a brush and hobby paint.
Now that I'm more familiar with the Monster Kolor's properties, I've been brushing it on as well. In small areas, with a good brush, the results are excellent, for example the iris on Mini Xam, and gold highlights on Mini Eyezon below. The paint provides smooth, vibrant colors with great consistency:

I've barely plumbed the depths of what Monster Kolor can do, and now my only gripe is that there aren't more colors (a standard, non-metallic purple would be great)!

This is fantastic paint, and there's an active, helpful community growing up, at the Monster Kolor website to take care of newbies and veterans alike. I would recommend it to anyone with an airbrush, or who is interested in starting with an airbrush.
New products like the just-introduced aerosol cans, and upcoming Monster Kolor Brushable should make an excellent product even more accessible.
