  1. I tried the plastic cups in thinner method yesterday and what I had then is what I still have now.Just a big glob of runny plastic in the bottom.I shook the jar over and over for a while.I thought it might change over night but it is still a big pile of goo.Used red solo cups and clear solo cups also.Any advice?
  2. I am fixing to get an Iwata and I plan on getting the HP C Hi line model.It was between that or the HP C Plus. Both have the .3mm tip and I have been spraying with VL guns with #3 tip/needle. I use createx and auto air most of the time and I was wondering if any of you guys have either of these guns.If so I am just curious about how the .3mm will spray these paints.I see a lot using the eclipse with the .35 but I want to know if I will have problems with the .3 when using paint straight from the bottle?
  3. I have been using the VL guns with #3 for years using createx straight out of the bottle.The pearls are thicker and require a little more psi,but I have never had to go above 40 psi. I clean the needle between every color change and then hold my finger over the tip and spray full pressure with water.It backs up and helps clean.After I am done for the day,I remove the tip and needle and clean both and then clean the gun with a pipe cleaner.Sounds like your tip and/or needle is gummed up.
  4. I can honestly say that is the most realistic paint job I have ever seen.That is just too good.
  5. I always cut with the grain.That is just the way I was taught.Works perfect for me.
  6. I think it might make a better system if it showed how many votes the lure has.That would offer a better idea of the overall voting....I think.But I tend to agree that the comments are what I appreciate.A comment is what got me researching about how to get my balsa baits smooth before painting:yay: .If nobody had told me they needed better prepping,I would have never looked into it for future baits.
  7. I was making and selling some of my hand carved balsas earlier this year.Now I have gotten covered up with the custom painting when I am home and I just dont have time to fill orders for baits and paint.I have thought about the lathe process and I am wondering about the price for the lathe and duplicator.And where do you get them?
