Are you mixing your colors? If so use alcohol. If you are using premade colors specifically for airbrushes then there is no need to add either. Start with spraying thin even coats of color and allow drying time before adding another layer.

You are welcome. Glad to help. Everclear or vodka work well. Good luck!

You also might try turning down the pressure until you learn a little more control.
