Hey chipping question folks. Hairspray, AK chipping fluid, Vallejo chipping medium, or the technique in the video. Which do you find gives the most satisfying results and is the easiest to do?

I like hairspray. It's cheap. I have some Vallejo chipping medium, but I have not tried it yet for comparison.

Vallejo chipping medium works really well with acrylics (especially other Vallejo acrylics, which I predominantly use to avoid fumes) and using a really wet brush after letting the acrylic dry, but not FULLY cure to prevent pealing.
I've tried the AK fluid once before and it did not work at all for me, just haven't had the want to try again. (But I'm sure I did something wrong... incompatible paint or bad application or something, it was pretty early on for me)

@Jim62 My Honda Z post was done with acrylic paint over Vallejo Chipping Medium.
