    I am playing with green color and I get darker spots. Paint is very well mixed, and I had this issue only with green color. It's pure paint ,no reducer, 0.5 and 20 psi. I suspect this is spitting of paint, the part which I don't understand is that those spots are darker then the object when it's fully saturated with paint. So is this cause of paint build up on needle and then airbrush just spits it?

    What kind of paint is it? I'd think you need to reduce it some?

    Green is a hard one to spray fade with just due to the build up of dry paint on the needle and it flying off due to you are keeping the paint flow high.
    If I use a green for a fade I will do it in many light layers I will start at the lightest are the work my way down. that way if or when the tip dry splatter happens I can usually cover it on the next layer.

    Pretty much anything thru an airbrush is going to need some sort of reduction. Either that or try a higher psi?

    Oh yeah, pull your needle out and see if there is paint on the tip? I need some of those hollow q-tips.
