Default Hobbico Mask & Compressor Questions

Picked up a jar of Hobbico liquid mask. The jar says to airbrush on the body but it sounds like everyone is just brushing this stuff on correct? Do I need to let each coat dry before added the next coat?

Compressor: I've got a small airbrush compressor (Badger or Paasche can't remember) but it doesn't put out very high PSI. I was thinking of using my large compressor that I run air tools off of and make a connector between the large hose and the air brush hose. Will this be OK?

Thought I should mention my brush is a Aztek A470.

I use my Porter-Cable compressor just fine. As long as you have a regulator and a moisture trap on it you should be good to go.

I sprayed the Bob Divley liquid mask I got. It sprayed ok at 50psi but I did have to do 3 or 4 coats. I just hit it with a hair dryer between coats and let it sit overnight. It dries fast but needs hours to cure.

I wouldn't bother to spray it on with a standard airbrush. It's very thick and can easily dry in your airbrush, making it a nightmare to clean. Just brush it on with a paint brush in 4 thick coats. Between spraying it and cleaning your airbrush, it's faster to brush it on. Yes let each coat dry (it turns clearish blue) before moving on to the next coat. I set mine by a window and it's dried and cured in about an hour.
