You just put the pearl into the cup and spray.You don't want to get too close to cause puddling...It is very easy..They best advice is get an airbush and practice.

dust doesnt clog up the airbrush?

Pearl dust can and will clog your airbrush. I premix my dust and vodka in a separate bottle and shake the tar out of it first. If there is a clog....back-flush your system. This is done by putting your finger over the end while pressing the spray button. You will see your liquid bubble. This may have to be done often if you see you are getting clogs. It is going to happen with those little flecks.

Oh how dumb of me.. icon_redface.gificon_redface.gificon_redface.gif

Of course you don't pour the dust into the cup icon_rolleyes.gif ...I meant the liquid pearl from Americolor of lucks....

If you are going to use dust you have to thin them down with everclear or clear alcohol like vodka or white rum.

Sorry I wasn't thinking with my answer... icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif
