What are the
differences between airbrush ink, hydropaint, and hybrid paint?
differences between these three products are the levels of alcohol and water
100% alcohol; no water.
contains mainly water with a very limited amount of alcohol.
contains both alcohol and water. The levels of each falling somewhere between
ink and hydropaint. Each brand uses different formulas in terms of the
percentages of alcohol and water.
As a rule,
the higher the alcohol percentage, the more water-resistant the ink/paint will
be which means the product is more difficult to wash off with soap and water.
Ink is waterproof and can’t be washed off; it must be removed with
alcohol. Hydropaint, on the other hand, is easily washed off but it is not
water-resistant. This means the paint can be smudged if the person sweats.
Airbrush paints contain alcohol, so they are water-resistant and smudge-proof,
but the level is low enough that no alcohol is needed to remove the paint. This paint can be easily washed off with soap and water, without scrubbing. According
to professional body paint model Krista, Kyrvaline has the most vibrant
colours; does not sting the skin when applied, due to the low alcohol level, and is
the hybrid paint brand that is most easily washed off available in the market.
