    I know I posted this once, but it is worth repeating. I also welcome any suggestions / ideas for addional airbrush related things to cover during the seminars.

  2. I am sure you will cover using the right paint, but, can you discuss the process of keeping the brush providing good "detail" while in use. By that I mean keeping the brush spraying small detail lines or spots for a duration. I would be interested in that. I seem to need to stop frequently and clean the needle tip and brush regulator. I just keep a small cleaning brush at hand. Maybe you have some tips for longer "Duration".

    What you showed us at the IL show was an awesome help- it convinced my husband, who has been stalling on letting me get a new one, get one on the spot! Thanks so much!
     
  4. I would love to see it but no way able to make it to the show. I would be awesome if someone posted a video after.

    Cheers.

    The amount of airflow is a very important part of keeping the paint flowing without tip drying. Too much air makes the paint dry much faster. Also a problem is stopping and starting, once your rolling do not stop as that will cause problems too. Retarder is always an option, but I have yet to resort to that in several hours of detailing, mostly with white paint, in my booths this year.
