Airbrush, two or three thin coats are better than one thick one, as that tends to hide and detail

I use an airbrush (if you want to call my results pro,,,) but I've seen people that can do it with a spray can. I think an airbrush does a much better job and is "easier" to get a good finish. I jsut hate all the mess and bother with air brushes to use all the time.
