Ok, I've got a few years experience with an airbrush, but the problem I'm having with my new kit has me baffled.
I've got a dual action Paasche, and a Testors 35 Psi compressor. The problem is this:
When in use, the paint will get sucked about 1/2 way up the hose/straw/whatever, but will stop before it makes it into the airbrush. Theres definately pressure, but it looks like it's just not enough.
I don't think that the problem is paint consistancy, because this problem occurs even when I attempt to spray water with the airbrush.
I have secured all hose connections with teflon tape and tripple checked for leaks.
would a compressor with a higher PSI rating fix this, or does the problem likely lie elsewhere?
