my airbrush arrived today yeah however i am at work so not had a chance to play yet!
Quick question, as I just thought whilst I was looking at the leaflet with it how do you clean the paint out of the airbrush?
I use warm water, fill the paint container with it and airbrush until the water runs clear.
After running the water through it, I run some everclear through - that will dry it all out better than the water.
Thanks but whats everclear (from the UK here)
everclear is 190 proof alcohol.
loucinda nailed it on the head... warm water to clean.. and clean and clean..then a very high % alcohol to dry it out quickly.
Francis Kyper in her classes, suggested using denture tablets dissolved in warm water to do a really clean cleaning! It takes out any staining from the food coloring and leaves your aribrush like new! Mine is over 30 years old and except for a new needle now and then is just like new!
Thanks guys, just found some cleaner in the pack of colours I got with it, guess I should have checked that first! Will use your suggestions as well though and see which is best.
Not going to get a chance to play with it til the weekend but looking forward to seeing what I can do, getting it going will be a plus lol
