Air Brush Questions
« on: June 28, 2012, 03:19:59 PM »

Hi guys, i am thinking of buying an airbrush kit.  I can think of over a hundred uses for it, but i don't  know the first thing about them.  Does anybody have any information?  Am i looking for a certain PSI? This is all very confusing. :banghead: :banghead:

PSI is pretty much the same for all brushes. Tip size can be changed, but most come a good utility size that will spray most paints. Get an external mix. Easier to clean, and you can spray thinned liquid latex through it.  This is necessary for mask painting :great:
Also, spend a little extra for a really good compressor. You'll thank yourself later when spraying in relatively low noise. I have a model maker CP-101. It's so quiet, you can watch tv at normal volume.

Gotta decide if you want single or double action. Double gets better detail/Single does good ,usually cheaper.Mine has its own lil compressor which makes it easy to take and use anywhere.Mine is gravity fed which I can paint with like a drop of paint,bottle fed need much more paint when used.

Are the separate compressors better?

Mine is very small,made for airbrush.You can buy cheap normal compressors but storage and noise become an issue.NOW if you have a wonderful mom who likes her truck in the driveway you have no worries. :D

It's usually stuck out there while we're building anyway.

OCD is 110% on the water separator. In Cali you will have serious issues when it gets humid, and you're using a larger compressor which generate a ton of heat in the air.
I like gravity fed brushes as well. You can refill the cup without having to unscrew the cup :great:

Take a look at this:
