MISTING IS THE WAY TO GO
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.
