I am guessing you are trying to get a rain drop effect?

A trick shown to me a while ago (that I have not used) is to spray a water mist on the painted surface till it beads, then spray colour over the water ,big wide fan more like overspray than direct paint so it just settles on the water droplets. Then without disturbing the job let the water dry off. The end result should look like its still wet!!:yeah:

Thanks man I will try that again!I have tried it but it just didn't turn out like I wanted.When I run water through the airbrush it's just a mist. I am looking for a variety of different sized waterspots.
