    Hi good people of the Forum, I am a beginner with an Airbrush and will no doubt need a lot of advice. After reading a lot of posts and YouTube I grabbed an Iwata HP-CS Eclipse and a set of wicked paints and started to practice doing dots and lines etc. Already had a compressor from spraying Guitars with Nitro and hope to do a little artwork on them,,Paul.

    Welcome from South Carolina. Dots, Lines and dagger strokes the essence of airbrushing. Also try them with different air pressures and paints that are reduced 1 to 1 all the way to 1 to 10

    Welcome from down on the south coast. The hp-cs is a great brush, and Wicked my fave paint, its a great combo.
