Another airbrush question...
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, May 17, 2003 3:18 AM
I have an Aztec A4709. Whenever I started to paint, or should I say, pull the trigger, the paint always starts out with a little splatter on whatever I'm aiming at. It happens with any type of paint I use, acrylic, enamel, even when spraying future. I've tried to thin the paint more, thin it less, still happens everytime. Any help on how to resolve this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

When you spray, start triggering before you get to the part you are painting, and release the trigger after you go past the part. Hope this makes sense and helps.

That's what I have been doing so far. I was just wondering if something was wrong that could be corrected. Thanks.

Before you start to paint, take a q-tip with some lacquer thinner on it and wipe out the tip then start spraying. Usually the overspray on the nozzle builds up and you get a splatter when you first start or let the trigger slap closed.

It builds up more quickly if the needle isn't perfectly centered. So, while spraying large amounts at a time check this often.
