New to airbrushing


Recommended Posts

I’m posting pics of my W-925 Kenworth cab and hood. The first set is my very first time utilizing an airbrush I shot 3 coats of pearl aztek white letting ample drying time between coats then after a very through drying time I wet sanded with 2000 girt sand paper and shot 2 additional coats. Please critique and by all means I accept constructive criticism. I think I did well for the first time. Mike

turn out great for your first time using airbrush

I agree with you but try sand paper 3000 (1) just to smooth everything and then clear it.

1= gently sanding not hard i have scrap some paint like this

Hey Michael, you did do a very nice finish job.  I'm with Jean-Pierre - go with a finer grit after 3000 (like in steps; 3000, 8000 and finish with 12000).  You might be surprised at the difference it makes.  Keep us posted and looking forward to seeing the results!
