Badger 350 newbie advice

Recommended Posts

I've been trying my hand an airbrushing, but I can never get the flow quite right. I'm using a Badger 350 airbrush, a Spraybee compressor (I suspect this is the issue, but I'm not in a position to replace it. it has a water trap and pressure dial, but does it need some sort of regulator?), Tamaya paints and thinners.

 

But the paint either doesn't come out at all, or comes out speckled like this (the black came out easir than the white, but both were Tamaya, and both mixed 70:30ish Thinner:paint) :-

The pressure is about 20psi, but the dial bounces around so it's hard to tell.

 

How can I get the paint more smooth, and ideally in a thinner come of spray?
