    good tip for the humidity. Bought a small ceramic heater and tested it in my booth. Think it might work.

  7. PSI for airbrush and House of Kolor

    first let me say thank you all for the replies. I was really pumped up to get started airbrushing. Thinking with knowledge of painting full sized cars that it would help. Gotta think small now! time this past weekend was a disaster turned learning lesson. Used spray can duplicolor grey primer earlier in the week. Paint day was maybe too cool to started too early at 63 degrees. Sprayed house of kolor orion silver that was ready to spray for an airbrush. It sprayed beautifully at 30psi. Let it sit about an hour and it felt dry. Then topped it with some autoair candy 2.0 blood red, same psi. Wow it was like red chromed finish. It started to wrinkle up so I moved it into the sun, had turned to about 72 degrees now. Photo looks better than actual model. Still had slight wrinkles but figured it was a learning lesson. Cleared with can tamily ts13. It sort of looks like old dried alligator skin now. Guess I need to slow down and allow more time between colors, coats, etc. Did learn to clean my airbrush really well. Getting another donor model ready to try again. Any ideas or any step by step tutorials? thanks!

  12. Buying my first airbrush Questions.

    been a while since ive posted. I'm looking for a nice under $200 (new or used) airbrush for house of kolors paints. really like my Paasche talon but it cloges up too much when using microflakes and some pearls. I cant get any larger tips or smaller flakes so I'm looking for another airbrush to use. Have a mini HVLP gravity feed paint gun but its too large for doing models. Thanks for the input everyone.
