    ^^^^Some old stuff for you


    But basicly just to start off......You should get to know every part of your airbrush and how to clean it properly.....Which is called Teching.......Also for basic Brush control..Practice your Dots and Daggers and Boxes...I'll post some stuff for you tomorrow cause I'll get some flicks

    Either...The Paint has clogged where the paint goes thur....Or your brush needs to be deep cleaned.

    It also varies on your airbrush.....What airbrush Modle do you have. It should either say it on the Box that it came in or on the Brush its self.....If you can't find it just take a pic of it and post it here

    sometimes you may have the needle holder on to tight try to losen it up an eighth of a turn around the need and see if the paint will come through...

    do you have a bottom feeder or top feeder?

    once u get into airbrushing uv entered a whole nother world of art its not much different from graff art its just the fact ur gettin into something u can make good money doin (not sayin u cant do that with spray paint) its just the fact society looks at graff artist as fuckin hoodlums that dont know anything but how to fuck shit up. Fuck that graff artist know alot about society in general and how to screw the system over but yea usually air brushing leads to doin tattoos wich is wat i do now either way u look at it we can all make money off wat ever medium u choose from walls to skin art is art fuck society and reep the benefits of ur art. just keep goin on this sight lol i havnt been on here since i went to jail a year ago and started doin tattoos so love peace and chicken grease and stay up my dudes

    airbrushing a lot of trial and error, especially when ur first starting out. but a lot of the same principles of spray painting work with an airbrush (closer to surface = a finer line) theres honestly like an insane amount of techniques for different types of control for different jobs, but just straight line work is a bit self taught. borg ull be fine man

    yeah you are kind of being a fag about this whole thing. start playing with the fucker. obviously its a double action so minimal pull = lighter softer line full pullback its going to give you a nice thicker line although it has only a 35mm opening. its gravity fed so you have no control over how much product youll be spraying out, just plan on doing fine detail work. imagine trying to do a fill in with a grey dot on a huge piece. it blows and takes forever. once you start to get an idea of how she'll react then start doing figure 8s fat to thick lines etc. have fun with it. if there is anything i can suggest to you now as a preventative buy airbrush cleaning solution and a cleaning machine so that you can let it soak in after using it. i would also invest in these cleaning brushes mack brushes makes because they have a fine brush on it thatll fit iwatas real nice. but when it comes to what youll be spraying i cant stress enough how important it is to thoroughly clean out your cup, running fluid through it by spraying, taking your needle out and wiping it clean, etc. if you have any questions about maintenance get at me i used to repair them quite a bit when i worked at the art store. fag.

    beware the beast man for he is the devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.

    define dots? i dont really see any point in jotting a bunch of dots on a piece of paper

    another question i had is....does it matter how much psi your using? i read some of the manual for the iwata eclipse last night, and it said 30-60psi......and the compressor im getting is 15-30psi.....would it really be that bad to lower the psi to about 20-25 for detail??

    and ofcourse im going to just have to experiment and shit......its quite hard when i only have the gun as of now though, just trying to gain some knowledge before i start this shit, seems u need a very wide range of knowledge about all aspects of airbrushing.....from compressors to paint...to technique,ect.......im just making some notes for myself

    ruger....ur fagilicious <3<3
