Am I supposed to thin the americolor or something or is it okay by itself? I read something along those lines somewhere but the instructions don't mention anything.....HELP!!!!!!
bump don't know yet
what kind do you have?
i dont know much but dont use regular paste for your airbrush ,use only airbrush color
Oh, my....ONLY AIRBRUSH COLOR!!!!!
You can actually even get away with thinning gel paste w/water if you are in a pinch. I do it all the time. I put 1 drop of gel paste (I love electric blue for skies!) in a small cup and add about 1/2 - 1 tsp water. Swirl it around until the gel paste is dissolved completely and you can pour the colored water into your airbrush well.
A great way to practice with your airbrush is to buy a children's coloring book and practice staying in the lines with it.
Good luck w/your new toy!
Boy I'd be afraid of using anything but the special airbrush colors.
You might be able to do it but what is it doing to the airbrush??
It might be weeks, or even months down the road before you notice something just isn't working right anymore
I agree with Kakeladi. I wouldn't use anything but the airbrush colors. You can find them everywhere and not worth the risk of ruining the gun.
yeah i agree, dont put any thing that wasnt designed for an airbrush into it. there pretty expensive to ruin.
you can use liquid food coloring or dilute gel in alcohol. i wouldn't use water because it doesn't evaporate very fast compared to alcohol and there is no taste to worry about. It won't hurt it any, I've been doing it for along time and have had no problems. Be sure to clean the airbrush when your done. I take mine apart and clean it with rubbing alcohol and run alcohol through it when I'm done to remove any leftover color. Good luck and have fun. Oh there's an article on airbrushing tech in american ckae decorator this month.
I have a airbrush I was taught to use only Airbrush coloring made for the Airbrush avoid using anything else because it will clog it if it's not mixed just right
Thanks everyone! I'll just use the americolor by itself....no mixing! Thanks again!
