  2. Hi Min, It looks like it's set at 55. I had thought it might be working hard to keep pressure up. It's one of those $80 Harbor Freight specials - all I can afford at the moment. Hey Neil, I don't think it's clogging, as I can switch to a jar of water and get a nice spray right off the bat without cleaning it. I am suspecting I may be thinning too much, as I am getting a lot of settling out of the pigments. May I don't need to thin as much as I have been. You both have given me some things to troubleshoot. Thanks. I'll play around and report back!
  3. Hi ho friends! I'm beginning to explore airbrushing underglazes onto my pieces and while I'm very familiar with underglazes, I'm fairly new to airbrushing. I'm well aware of the safety considerations regarding spraying ceramic materials - I have a mask and a nifty little homemade spray booth, so I'm good there. I'm primarily using the airbrush to blend, so I apply the base colors first, then go back with the airbrush to soften lines. I'm using Amaco Velvets, thinned and put through an 80 mesh screen. Using an inexpensive airbrush from Harbor Freight double action brush that uses a little jar (as opposed to gravity feed). It also has a cup, but I've not used that. Not sure how much to thin or sieve my underglazes, or if there is another airbrush set-up I should use. The biggest issues seem to be keeping the particles suspended and not having a smooth, continuous stream of underglaze. Plain old water goes through just fine. Thanks for any tips/thoughts!
