In Topic: Paint or Airbrush problem?

21 September 2007 - 03:28 PM

Well gave it another go today and found the same thing happening :o So I turned the air down a bit to around 20 psi and hey presto gone! So I am gonna wait until after the weekend and sand back the coat I laid today nice and smooth and then re shoot the colour again.

The other coats had been done prior to the coats today with a few days between, I also wet sanded between coats. I am thinking that as you guys say its probably some kind of contamination. I will clean out my airbrush again and wait for the car to dry. I will then sand it back and get some pre-paint wipes from an autostore or something.

I wiped it down with white spirit before painting, I wonder if that had anything to do with it? I also shook up the little pot that the paint came in could it be trapped air in the paint???

Its the first time this has happened and I have sprayed a few coats prior to this with no problem.

Thanks for your thoughts guys. I am going to sand down the finish a little tonight as it has brought out a few imperfections, bad prep I guess :angry:

I suppose I should have had an old piece of plastic to practice on as getting a good finish as its different with the airbrush. Never mind though I am having fun which i the important part.
