  1. Tiny Bubbles when airbrushing
  2. Tiny Bubbles when airbrushing

    a number of things can cause bubbles, to much air pressure, do you run a water trap in the line from your compressor? moisture under the paint, humidity. these are just the basic ones to start with. are you using a reducer with your paint?

    hey dale there is a member named Kasilofchrisn that posts in the wire bait section. he came up with a way of hot stamping his jigs. you should hit him up or do a search for his name and hot stamping
  8. 2 Part Bondo Molds

    actually you can use about any type petroleum product as a release agent. i have used wd-40, triflow, vaseline. they all work just make sure you get everything coated with whatever you use. i have made probably 15 different 2 piece bondo molds for saltwater jigs. i like the bondo glass (green colored) better than the standard pink (after mixed). Never had any of the molds warp on me and they save me a ton of cash on 3oz to 8oz lead jigs. the ocean is not forgiving on lures. I also use a couple of these type clamps on the mold when pouring lead Good luck.....

  11. Airbrush issue

    always finish your cleaning with water, so that you get out any residue left over from thinners and cleaners
  12. Airbrush issue

    have you tried backflushing it yet?
  13. Airbrush issue

    also check the air hole on the top where the jar screws on at. make sure its not clogged or it will create a vacuum in the paint jar and wont pull paint out. but yes try backflushing it first and see if you get bubbling into you jar.
  14. Airbrush issue

    i bet if you fill the cup with water or cleaner and hold your finger over the nozzle then pull the trigger. it will backflush whatever is blocking the paint and probably work fine
  15. Airbrush issue

    when you put your finger over the nozzle to backflush it, does it bubble in the paint cup?
