Hey all! I'm really excited because I finally have my hands on all the materials I need to begin the fun task of painting my helmet! Seeing as how I'm as green as grass when it comes to using an airbrush, I was hoping to maybe crowdsource some answers to a few questions I have, so any help would be much appreciated!
1. Is it okay to airbrush a layer of acrylic over a layer of enamel and vise versa? (assuming each layer is dried before applying the next)
2. What's best to thin acrylic paint with for airbrushing? I've read windex can be used, isopropyl alcohol, or distilled water, is there a preferred or will any do?
3. Best way to clean your brush in between uses? I hear paint thinner can be bad for inner gaskets in the brush and I have a bottle from Testors labeled "enamel thinner & airbrush cleaner", so I'm guessing that can naturally be used to clean, but also to thin enamel as well? Just looking for clarification on that one to make sure!
Those are the big questions I've got at the moment, any input from the more experienced airbrushers in the community would be very much appreciated!
