Hello all,

 

I see many builds on the Net where the modelers constantly SHAKE the airbrush while painting. Is there a technique to this? I move my AB but not shaking like a paint mixer like what I saw. Please advise. Dai

The only time I can see the need to gently shake the AB once in a while is when spraying NMF to prevent the metallic particles from settling down to the bottom of the color cup.

Not entirely sure what you mean by shaking it.
Like one would shake a rattle can?

 Yeah, I don't get that either. 25 years of painting cars taught me to make long even strokes passing over the surface evenly without turning the (spray gun) airbrush to either side and overlap the previous coat on the next pass. That jerky, skipping motion I see on so many utube videos makes my fur stand up every time.
