  1. ytsejam87, good info in the link. I thought I saw it, but read more. Thanks!
  2. Mstor, I poured the decanted paint into a jar. Do you screw the cover on loosely? I guess I'm wondering if the paint will dry out if it's not covered. Rob, maybe I have a different tip. I am pretty clumsy and drop stuff. I will try exchanging it will in use.
  3. I use both Vallejo Acyk and Model Master Enml, but normally use Model Master Enamels dnl42. I'm getting splatter in the middle of the stroke. That has happened with both the bottle and decanted paint. I would have thought that the decanted paint would have worked, since it it was from the spray can. I will try the "Burp". ytsejam, I did thin the bottled paint, more like eye balled the ratio. As for gassing it off, not really a few minutes. How log should I let it gas out? I did not thin the decanted paint though. Not much time either for gas out.
  4. I normally build military models, but I've been working on an old 1/12 Chevy. Big kit. Never had a problem until I started working on this car. I'm using Model Masters Auto Enamel Classic Black paint decanted from the spray can through my airbrush. Running at 20 to 25 psi. Used 2 separate airbrushes with similar problems. In the middle of my passes, I'm getting splatter. Is the mix too thin or not thin enough? Also, I'm not getting even coats. I'm beginning to think I need to go back to the bottles and do my mix. This is driving me mad. HELP!
