    i tried to paint that body today and i went to my LHS and they told me that i needed to put some thinner in the paint and i said ok so when i was going to paint it i mixed it like they told me 50/50 and the paint didnt stick to the body at all.... are u suppose to do this because they said the airbrush would get cloged

    practice on scraps first
    what paint are you using?
    lacquers are a pain to learn with, you want to get reducer instead of thinner for those
    i would suggest acrylics to start with, createx has very good transparent paint, they are water clean up and use water to thin

    those are acrylic you can thin with water, if you do thin then use several light coats.
    faskolor you can use straight out of the bottle but you need about 40psi
    made a video for you and uploading right now
