Most of beginner airbrushing woes were the result of two things, the improper care and cleaning of the equipment, and not being able to reassemble a gun once I had taken it apart. I hope it helps others to avoid the frustration of my early airbrushing days.
Deep cleaning your airbrush after each job is recommended to prevent problems associated with clogging.
STEP 1: Disassemble your airbrush according to your airbrush model’s specifications.
STEP 2: Soak nozzle cap, nozzle, needle cap, and body in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.
STEP 3: Wipe needle clean with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.
STEP 4: Assemble airbrush according to the airbrush model’s specifications.
