  • Airbrush at low pressures between 10 – 20 psi. (Iwata airbrushes give the best performance and atomisation at low pressures.)
  • Apply colour in thin coats with a brush or airbrush
  • Allow to dry completely between coats
  • Clean your airbrush with LifeColor Cleaner or Medea Airbrush Cleaner and flush through with water
