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...
