Default How much thinning @ 20psi?

I use Faskolor paints with a Paasche airbrush, but my compressor is fixed to 20psi.

How much do I thin the Faskolor?

Must I use Faskolor thinner, or can I use Pactra or any other brand thinner as well?

Use water to thin faskolor, not thinner. There is no set amount, but start off around one teaspoon per bottle and add from there. Don't forget to shake like crazy.

Thanx.

I tested it on a scrap piece of lexan and it sprayed much easier! (I originally did not thin it.)

How long does it take for Faskolor paint to cure fully? I just used Faskolor paint for the first time and it seems to scrape off pretty easily, I put about half of an eye dropper for about half of one of the bottles. I have an Aztek air brush. Any other tips for a painting newbie?
