    Wish they had a better pour spout on those bottles, most the times when filling a air brush cup I waste some paint & make a mess. Any one else have that problem?
     
  2. Yea, its not just poly paint either. Most other paint bottles are horrible too

    I don't even waste my time anymore trying to squeeze paint out unless it's a brand new bottle. I shake, unscrew each cap and pour. And have a pair of channel locks handy ready to go because the screw caps are usually dried on too. In fact, I rarely even try to loosen by hand anymore and just go straight to the channel locks...

    I did that also with the channel locks but at times some of the dried paint falls into the bottle on me. They do need to be designed , all the technology available today drip proof bottles is not impossible , investing the money and change over might be.

    Yeah, that happens sometimes. And perhaps it's an issue with some of the higher end detail air brushes. But, it's never been an issue with my single action Pasche. Any chunks will settle to the bottom of the bottle. I never strain my paint either. What a p.i.t.a. that is (did it ONCE)...

    Really? You still use one of those? From what I've seen posted, the pros use and recommend a higher end airbrush for greatly improved detail. [​IMG]

    Perca, that's because I'm keeping my amateur status with the hopes that they replace wrestling in the Olympics with "Synchronized Airbrushing with Cheap Airbrushes"...

    I can't believe they are going to discontinue olympic wrestling!! The way things are going I figured they would expand it to women's wrestling and then mixed wrestling. To discontinue wrestling and then add some of these adolescent daredevil stunts is a sign of the times. [​IMG]

    They added women's wrestling in 2004...
