Hold your airbrush much the same you would a pen but with your index finger on top of the trigger as pictured below. You can drape the air hose over your forearm to keep it out of your way if it’s easier for you. The airbrush should feel comfortable in your hand, don’t hold it real tightly, relax.

Why is my airbrush not spraying paint?
Poor Spraying or Spattering This can be caused by a number of reasons from paint consistency, low air pressure, damaged needles, tip dry or a partially block nozzle. Dried paint/tip dry on the needle – Remove needle and clean with a cloth dampened with airbrush cleaner.

What PSI should I airbrush at?
COMPRESSORS – A unit that generates at least 30 PSI is recommended to start airbrushing. Some applications, such as T- shirt painting or other fabric painting, may be more efficiently done at higher pressures (up to 65 psi).
What does the needle in an airbrush do?
Needle/Nozzle Size The needle/tip size on your airbrush is a matter of preference. The needle size determines how fine your airbrush will spray. As logic tells you, the smaller the needle, the finer your spray will be. As you reduce your needle size, you should also consider the viscosity of your paint.
Why is my airbrush speckling?
Airbrush paint splatter that is continuous is caused by over-thinned paint or excessive air pressure being delivered to your airbrush. However airbrush paint splatter that comes in random bursts can be caused by inconsistent pressurised airflow, or partial airbrush blockages brought on for a number of reasons.
What is needed to start airbrushing?
These are the four things required before you can spray:
- An airbrush.
- A source of compressed air, either a compressor or a propellant can (similar to an aerosol).
- A means of connecting the airbrush to the air supply. For a compressor this is simply a hose with suitable connectors both ends.
- Some Paint!
Do you need an air compressor for airbrushing?
No, but you do need a compressor that can produce enough PSI for your specific airbrush. If the PSI is too low or too high, your airbrush won’t work correctly.
