Airbrushing, paint screen, dilution

Recommended Posts

While I do enjoy seeing everyone's builds that show me how inept I still am,I'm really here for HELP.

I've used air but with ink rarely with paints.

Use craft paints diluted 1:1 water. 20 lbs air. Plugs,spits or floods. Swirl in jar,in coats then fades to translucent to clean fairly quickly.

Bought a nylon coffee strainer,paint barely drains through it. Should it pour right through it ?

Had drill on high to mix, created massive bubbles. Assuming THAT caused issues with spray. Back on low ,just mix NOT blend.....

I tried alcohol once but the paint turned to gum ,so afraid of that unless I test with small amounts I guess. Any answers or opinions ??

Not the most popular choice, but I would go with the organic-solvent based (stinky) paint.  No fuss, no muss - they are much easier to deal with and work well.  I don't get along with water based paints.
