Vallejo primer issues - respirator advice - spray booth adviceHi, I have been having real issues using vallejo primer. It has been clogging my airbrush and getting bad results and find even though it is definitely thin enough I need to pump the airbrush. It is soooooo frustrating! I see bits flinging out of the airbrush (AB) and can't get a nice slow low pressure low coat of paint / fine slow mist and build up layers like I want too and constantly find the need to pump and have a sudden burst of paint. I clean my airbrush with a mix of 99% rubbing alchohol, glycerin and method glass cleaner and it's brilliant. I'm losing the will to paint / live using this primer. I will not ever use nasty fume filled solvent based primers as they are killer. It has to be acrylic and safe. What do I need to do to find a solution?? - Adding klear? - Use distilled water and not tap water to dilute? (I live in oxfordshire and the water is hard) - mix my own primer using what...? - mix something else with vallejo primer? I have searched using the ;britmodeller tag and see lots of talk, but most of it leaning towards solvent based which as I say is an absolute no no. I don't tend to have such an issue when using a new bottle of vallejo primer only when it has been ran down and I'm using the last quarter of he bottle??? Is this the answer? Is there a way of filtering the primer to get rid of the issue???? Please help!
Respirator for Lacquer paint.
Rick Brown posted a topic in AirbrushesChaps. I know this has been covered somewhere before, but I can't seem to find the answer. Which mask and filter are you all using for airbrushing lacquer paint? I need a new mask setup and am looking for suggestions. I'd like a half mask rather than a full mask, as I do spray in a well ventilated area and only small amounts at a time. Yes, I am aware of the dangers of ingress via the eyes etc, please keep this on topic, as topic creep seems to be an issue these days! Rick.
13odobson posted a topic in Other ToolsWondering if anyone uses or can advise on respirator cartridges for airbrushing. I will be using a 3m 7500 series respirator, but do I need only multi gas/vapour cartridges, only particulate filters or a combination of the two? Cheers
Mask/Respirator for airbrushing?
Butler991 posted a topic in Other ToolsHi all, I'm a complete novice just trying to get my kit together before embarking on some (hopefully) great modelling journeys. I've an airbrush which I haven't yet used, just a bargain basement thing from eBay (didn't see the point in splashing out straight away, I can always expand at a later date). The one thing I feel the need to purchase is a respirator or mask of some sort; my modelling will be taking place in the garage and there are no windows and with winter almost here, I'll be keeping the door shut! Can anybody recommend a mask or respirator? It doesn't need to be too flashy and the cheaper the better, but it does need to be effective. Thanks in advance, Scott. PS: If anybody has any tips they learned from when they started airbrushing, please feel free to share
