Default Re: Coating with e-tex

I have been given a Badger 250 airbrush as an X-Mas gift....I have a few blank plugs I want to try and paint and have decided on color patterns...all that is to decide is the following:

what kind of paint should I use for painting my blanks???......acrylic??...an oil based apint as it is more durable?.....Im thinking of the salt water enviroment..........acrylic seems weak ?...

Also what do you use to pre-seal your plugs prior to painting??....linseed oil>>????....how many coats should I apply....sand between coats.....??...

Oh yes....what is it you guys are using to create the scale look on the plugs??

thanks for any input
