In Topic: spray guns for glazing

08 November 2015 - 02:20 PM

detail stuff i'd recommend an airbrush. for large areas any decent sprayer should do the trick but usually gravity feed is preferred for spraying minerals/glaze through it. in our studio i've got a very cheap auto parts store siphon feed set that came with a large and small sprayer - seems to work pretty well actually and has been student-proof for several years, surprisingly. for an inexpensive sprayer that will spray almost any consistency material is the "critter" siphon feed sprayer - that thing is amazing! and will accept mason jars or small plastic mayo jars as the res.

I need a spray gun or an airbrush. Usually I do a thin dip glaze on my work and then put some colour in specific areas on some objects that are rather small. My guess is that I need an air gun not a spray gun for this. I was looking at the Critter spray gun which looks like it works very well with spraying as it is much like the mouth aspirator in principle. However its description in application of glaze sounds like it might not work in my case (circular glaze pattern only). How do the airbrush fare in terms of cleaning? Do they clog up easily? Any working particularly well in this regards?

Thanks for this input Paul. It helps to hear what you have to say. I won't be making an extruder myself as I am using it for children class I will be teaching so the budget will pay for it. It seems to indicate it is strong with the description industrial in its name.

I am interested to buy a hand held extruder but don't know which seems to be the prefered choice. Has anyone heard of IKEG - Industrial Klay Extruder Gun. I know there is Scott Creek and Bailey. But which one to buy?
