Are there special paints to use when airbrushing?


There are special paints that you should be using for airbrushing, usually they will be labeled as airbrushing paints. You can always ask at an arts and crafts store about the proper paint to use.

Iwata eclipse G6 airbrush gun - no paint flow, bubbles forming in gravity feed bottle.


it is rather large (usually 0.6mm nozzle) airbrushing gun,

symptom indicate that needle is closing the nozzle and not retracting, gun need cleaning! or adjustment - seem like both...

remove paint from the feeder, remove feeder bottle from the gun body, clean it well with paint stripper and then solvent/water allow it to dry
remove front casing from the gun and check for any physical debris around the needle or in the chamber, carefully clean without damaging the needle. needle is stainless should be nearly mirror finish.wash with solvent and use toothbrush - DO NOT USE METAL BRUSH!

put it back together and check if it works correctly, if you have any flow from the front - fill about 1/3 of the tank with paint stripper and then spray it to the sink or whatever other safe place. do not forget to wear safety mask, goggles and gloves! paint stripper will eat through your skin! if you splash yourself, have few spoon of vinegar mixed with 2pints (1 liter) of water and this solution will deactivate paint stripper! SAFETY FIRST!

if gun still do not work - you need to strip needle assembly and clean it correctly, put your gun on the table on butcher paper, remove screw holding needle on the back (watch for the spring!) put whole assembly on the paper in the order in which you removed it,
clean needle and needle seat, lightly grease it with vaseline and in reverse order put it back together.

regulations:
very bottom screw - this close to the airhose, it regulates volume of the air to the gun, you very rarely need to adjust that one, you increase volume with haevy paint and decrease it with light paints
needle screw - it regulates volume of the paint itself, closing it clockwise will decrease amount of paint, anticlockwise will increase volume of paint
top screw - it regulates the spray pattern, totally closed - round pattern as there will be no flow to side vents, more open, more flat the spray pattern,

i would suggest fill the bottle with water and put some butchers paper on the wall and experiment what is what and what pattern is most suitable for your use.

hope this little info will help you solve your problem, it is good you give the model, it will be better if you provide as well what medium you use, was it acrylic, oil, water based? all of them behave little bit differently in airgun...

please do not hesitate to leave your opinion and points... thanx!

Air Brush blwa air out of tip but no paint. Whats up. Please help!!!


most common problem is paint, it is too thick, second problem is your feedline/needle block.

before you put your airbrush apart - remove paint from container, wash well with appropriate solvent, put some of this solvent to the container and try spraying, if no solvent comes out - adjust needle stopper, this is dual action! have needle adjustment! as you did not give the model and manufacturer, this can be only and only general advice!

if still nothing comes out - prepare butcher paper, disconnect airline from the airbrush, disassemble the gun putting the parts on the paper in order in which you disassemble it. wipe off the needle with soft cloth, use drop of solvent if needed. clean body and container assembly and check for liquid flow from container to the nozzle, it should be steady drop, if there is no flow, then use special brush and if you do not have one, soft copper wire of smaller diameter than the passage to clean mechanically the passage. check again for liquid flow. re-assemble the gun, use bit of vaseline or paraffin to grease the needle and moving parts before re-assembly.

use solvent first to check liquid flow. adjust needle, pattern and size of the max flow. remove solvent, put paint into the container and use normally.

in 0.2 nozzle, paint should be of virtually water density... if this is opaque paint - need to be strained as any impurities and bigger chunks will clog the outflow...

hope this advice will help you with your problem - and i do earn some points from you...

What is an air brush?


An airbrush is a small, air-operated tool that sprays various media including ink and dye. Spray guns were developed from the airbrush and are still considered a type of airbrush.

Spraying paint instead of air for the first action


Make sure the needle is pushed completely up against the tip. You will possibly have to take the back handle off to adjust it. (I am not familiar with this paint gun specifically). Make sure you do not force the needle into the tip, gentley push it until it stops.
I hope this helps.

I suggest that you go to the Library and look up how to airbrush. The paint goes into the cup. Nozzle adjustments are learned as you go, for desired results. Good luck
