There are 2 main types of airbrush paints. Acrylic, like Parma Faskolor, Createx, and Proline (water based) and solvent paints like Spazstix, Tamiya etc.The solvent paints are much thinner than the acrylics so spraying them at 20 psi is fine. For the acrylics I spray them at 35psi. The TRANSPARENT acrylic paints can be sprayed at around 20psi. Your air brush is key as well. Are you using one that has a needle/nozzle of 3.5 or larger. Acrylics work well with the larger nozzle size.
hope this helps
