If you want your customs to be as great as they can be, you need to have the right tools for the job. From cleaning to color mixing to painting, there are a lot of accessories that you can use to make your job much easier. Consider grabbing some of these accessories to help you with your next project.

First and foremost, every artist needs a quality brush set. A high-quality set of paint brushes will allow you to create clean designs without leaving too many unwanted brush strokes. This starter set includes a #2 round, #6 flat, #10 flat, #6 filbert, and 1/2" angular brush.

One incredibly useful product that you might not have known you're missing is a heat gun. Heat guns let you apply focused heat to your customs without damaging the paint or product. Making quality customs takes a lot of time and patience. Using a heat gun can help you complete your projects a little bit more quickly.

Next thing to help make your life a little bit easier is a fingertip blade. When making intricate designs, you might need to cut your own detailed stencils. Using a fingertip blade gives you a lot more stability and control when cutting out detailed designs for small surfaces.

When you're trying to recreate a certain color, it can be hard to find the right colors to mix. A pocket color wheel can be a great tool, especially for beginners and students, to help you find the perfect paint combination to get the style that you're going for.


Lastly, you should consider picking up a high-quality airbrush to take your designs to the next level. An airbrush with an ergonomic grip will be more comfortable and give you more control when painting your customs.
