Who all has tried the contrast paints?

I'm just getting back into painting after a decade, so this stuff is great.  but I don't have the steady hand.  I'm tending to drop a base coat and move on doing multiple models.  I've not got the greatest feel for the dry time, and when I check it's all over the board what people say.  I do a thickish coat for sure, but tend to brush off so it doesn't pool as badly as I've seen some of the youtube videos do.  Guess it's more practice to figure this out.

This is the issue I ran into, smaller wire like application of the blood angel red didn't show definition, had to keep thinning it to see it. Larger spaces seem to shine easily though.

I use them over metallics. Generally want to use silver, a good bright one. Lighter colors seem to work better. Tried Leviadon Blue over P3 Quick Silver, and it kept the metallic sparkle, but it was pretty dark. I've seen some good gold tones produced, and one guy on YouTube made some Candy Apple Red Terminators that looked really good.

So I used it on a D&D Wizkids mini and was it just me or does the stuff not want to adhere to all surfaces? Those pre-primed minis usually paint applies straight on, but I noticed a repelling behavior with the contrast. Anyways, worked GREAT. I used the blood angels red and snakebite leather on a dude and SO COOL. I learned quickly how the edge touch up is IMPORTANT as being straight on target with zero bleed over takes some serious skills.
