    Do a search for a company Hex Holdings to see if they have a website, this is who i use to buy all my paint from.

    However unless you have the correct set up and conditions to paint water base then i wouldnt even attempt it.

    Water based can be a pain in the arse to use unlike solvent and 2k. Water based requires airflow over the paint to dry rather than heat like 2k.

    Hope this helps

    If you are using waterbased paint then the air from the gun will flash it off

    There must be a local supplier in your area, if not I am sure someone like Morreli's will cover it!

    If your new to this then waterbased is the way to go, that way you shouldn't have any solvent reactions etc, which can be a pain in the arse!
