Hey, I'm really getting fed up with my H&S Evolution so I need to vent while picking your minds for a possible solutiin I'm using acrylic paints from Revell, Vallejo and Mig and no matter which brand, what paint-to-thinner ratio, pressure (10-15 psi) or thinner (tap water, IPA, IPA+water, original Revell Aqua thinner) I'm using the tip always ends up clogged as soon as I stop spraying for more than 2-3 seconds. I have to wipe off the tip of the needle to be able to spray again. Today, for instance I used a 30-70, paint-thinner mix for some post-shading. The paint wasn't even flowing constantly at 15 psi! When it did, it spidered, of course. Have you experienced such a problem? Can someone please help with any advice? I'm on the verge of selling it... Many-many thanks in advance! Cristian
I am brand new in the world of airbrushing. I recently purchased a Paasche Millennium double action airbrush and a Paasche D3000R compressor with air tank. So far I have used the set up for about 20 minutes in total. Today I was spraying Testors Acrylic Gloss Black. My compressor was set at 20 psi When I had finished and was cleaning the airbrush, I noticed that a lot of paint had dried on the needle. I was spraying the gloss black as it comes from the bottle. Should I have thinned the paint? If so, by how much, and what with? Is my pressure set too high? or too low? Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks
