MISTING IS THE WAY TO GO

Model Rail (UK) - - Scenery What You Will Need -

In order to stay in con­trol of the paint­ing process and avoid the risk of cre­at­ing pud­dles, we need to reg­u­late the flow of paint care­fully. Dur­ing the early phases in par­tic­u­lar, keep the paint flow to a gen­tle mist – this is where the prac­tice work with the trig­ger, as out­lined last month, proves its worth. It’s also a time when an air­brush’s pre-set han­dle (if fit­ted) re­ally comes into its own, al­low­ing the paint output to be lim­ited.

Pre-set han­dles help to reg­u­late the flow of paint from the air­brush. Simply dial the knob at the air­brush’s tail to in­crease or de­crease the output.

Al­ways keep a sheet of pa­per at hand for test­ing the paint flow, be­fore aim­ing the air­brush at a model.
