Hello there,
I'm a bit of a novice compared to many on this board, but have recently acquired my first airbrush. I am so excited to get working with it. Got it all assembled today, but it came with VERY little in the way of instruction. So, I have a few questions. 1. Are there different 'tips' or something like that to purchase which would determine the diameter of the spray? 2. Is it okay to use hot water to clean it, or do I need a cleaner and what is the best way to be sure it's clean? 3. Are there any good tutorials or e-books that anyone would recommend for technique? ANY help is greatly appreciated. icon_smile.gif

What I did when I first started with the airbrush, I got a coloring book and practiced, practiced, practiced. you can ajust your spray by moving inclose for fine spray and pulling back for more all over spray. i use both cleaner and hot water to clean. if you run cleaner through you air gun after each use it will keep it from clogging, I run it in a hot bowl of water between colors and spray onto a paper towel to make sure the color runs out. Hope this helps you out a bit
