To follow up on this post, I found that around 40 psi is the sweet spot and I did water down the Bittymask mixture first. Make sure to strain the liquid before putting it in your spray gun or else the lumps will for sure clog your needle.
I strain Bob dively cut with 20% hot water. I shoot mine thru a badger omni 4000 airbrush with a 1mm needle and nozzle set. Works like a charm. I shoot @ 30 psi.
I clean with soapy hot tap water between coats.
