Default Paint tip

I have been using fast color paints for a while now in my airbrushes. the problem I always have is the gun builds a film every time i use multiple colors. no matter how much I wash it it still builds this film. well I found somthing that keeps the gun really clean now. DIF wallpaper remover! If I put some in the gun and shoot it through the tip it removes everything. I leave a little in the gun now when I'm not using it so when I wash it to use it it comes completly clean. It will remove all the dried mist from the outside of the gun too and it is not caustic. Cheap too. Get it at your hardware store or home depot. The natural enzyme in it eats the cellulose in the paint. Thats what walpaper paste is made of.

It only works on fast color not solvent based paints.

Hi Dennis,

I haven't had that problem with Faskolor yet. I use an internal mix T&C Vega 2000 and it sure would be nice to clean the paint out of the body faster when switching colors. Do you find that this stuff helps flush things faster?

I just got a 50' hose custom made... now I can paint ANYWHERE in my house and leave the compressor in the garage!!

Thumbs up

Thanks for the Tip!

A beginner air brush should be a single action brush. They are alot of those kind of air brush at Hobby & Craft shops.

I am looking to purchase an air brush and need some direction on how to paint a body. Does anyone know of any good articles on the internet to help me get going. I can't figue out how the cool body paint jobs get to blend from one color to the next.

When i clean my airbrush after using the Faskolor paints, i always run some water through it and then i use denatured alcohol. I get it at home depot.

I use Windex between color changes. I have been doing this for more than 10 years, and have yet to have any negative results.
