You haven't mentioned what tips you're using...that would possibly make a big difference, especially if you were spraying metallics or pearls, which would require a larger tip...I'm no expert with airbrushing, but that's an important part of the equation. I sprayed some FasGlitter with the FasKoat and I believe I used a 0.5mm tip with that.

it might not say spray from the bottle but I do. Badger makes a cap/fitting/adaptor to fit it right to the bottle. I've been sold on this for awhile but alot of guys don't like the bottom feed guns. The gravity gun is a pretty popular type of gun but for me the ease of cleanup works best with the bottle adaptor. It was a lot of trial and error for me too so good luck with what you do.


p.s. I've used distilled water to thin also...don't know if its better or not...
Peace and professionlism.....Kabunga signing off!!!

As far as preventing paint from creeping under your tape I have found that burnishing the outer edge of the tape with an object as hard as your finger nail.
All you have to do is after youve applied your tape, rub along the edge with your thumbnail or if you cant get to an area use a piece of plastic about the same strength as your nail.
Don't scratch it, rub it. it's called burnishing.
