    Hi’ all,
    Just a quick question.
    Is there much spray/mist/atomised paint coming from an airbrush when in use, it would be a concern for me as the room I would be using it in is full of my ham radio gear. Also if there is, is there any easy way of dealing with it other than building a complete spraying booth.
    Kind regards to all, Malc.

    Thank you for the reply/link
    This article is very helpful and seems to be quite easy to setup.
    Regards, Malc.

    Even with this set up, you will still get over spray. I use this and have it facing a window and it still gets every where. The only way to stop it completely, would be a dedicated spray booth. I would not be spraying near your electronics.

    Hi’ Thanks for the reply,
    Well, this is very disappointing, I will obviously need to reconsider my airbrushing thoughts.
    Regards, Malc

    It depends a lot how you’re spraying. If I’m working close on some smaller details, there’s not a lot of overspray produced. Spraying wide patterns produces a lot of overspray, but I would think a simple cover would be fine to keep it off of the electronics.

    This is the question :)

    That’s kind of what I mean. Spraying wide with my Eclipse can leave overspray over a pretty big area. Being tighter in painting small lines, very little noticeable overspray actually settles.
