Airbrush Advice

4 posts in this topic

I want to buy an Iwata airbrush but I am not sure what model and what size paint cup would be best for lure painting. Would the 1/16 oz cup be big enough? I plan to paint just a few lures at a time for my personal use. Thanks.:)

Any of the Iwatas with a 1/16 oz gravity feed cup will hold enough paint for 2 or 3 lures and when you need more, just squirt it in the cavity. I wondered about this too when I began considering Iwata but found that the HP-B+ I bought is just about "perfect sized" for painting crankbaits. I think you'll love the Iwatas. IMO, they're a cut above.

I use anything that's the right color. Createx or Translatex are what I have right now but I'm not particular. I even use "hobby acrylics" like Apple Barrel to get specific shades. The Iwata handles them fairly well without clogging. But a Paasche VL or Badger 175 handles the coarse paints better so I use them for white basecoats and other "all-over" paint coats.
