This is a great video on what to check when things aren't working right. The guy is a tshirt artist, but many of the tips still apply to minis or even cars.

I've designed several stands for some of my own airbrushes, and uploaded the STL files to Thingiverse for 3d printing. They all print with minimal supports; I've been enabling Cura's "Make overhangs printable" option, and then they need no supports at all.

 

I wanted something that would hold the brushes securely without being a pain to get them in and out of, and the test prints I've so far done have worked very well. I've pierced the bases with countersunk holes for screwing them down to a desk or shelf or just a bit of wood, to give them considerably more stability — they're fine just on their own with an unmounted brush, but I worry about snagging the hose on a mounted brush and pulling the whole shebang on to the floor.

 

So far I have designs for the following:
 

Badger 105 Patriot at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3135372

Badger 200 Single-action at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3135516.

Badger Krome at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3137556

Paasche Talon at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3141265

 

Here's the stand for the Patriot 105:

The others (and any others I make in the future) are pictured on my blog at http://mojobob.blogspot.com/2018/10/airbrush-stands.html

      So today when I started airbrushing, I noticed that after I sprayed a bit the pressure on the tank was dropping, which made it difficult to get an even coverage. I'd start at around 15psi, and it would hold for a couple seconds, then drop steadily until it was down at 5psi. Turning up the pressure did not help, it still dropped psi. I took out the needle and checked and cleaned it and the rest of the ab, then tried just shooting air through, without needle or anything but the nozzle lever. Same result. Seals are airtight at least until I start shooting air through. I have a Paasche TG-3F, bought it with the compressor in a package deal, compressor has a humidity filter on it.
       
      EDIT: Just noticed that while air is going through the airbrush, adjusting the pressure does nothing at all. I can turn it up or down and it stays at 5psi. Unless I reduce the pressure below 5psi, then it goes down. Adjusting the pressure when I release the airbrush changes psi normally.

      Finished Cthulhu on Saturday, I think I'm learning to overcome my fear of highlighting too far, I still didn't go as light as people said I should. Some say you can go practically to white, but I am very hesitant to try that. I think I've made progress though. C&C welcome!

      Got my start on Cthulhu last week. Did a prime in black, then zenithal pre-shade white from above. Purple from below, then green from above. Liking the effect so far, think I'm done with the airbrush, gonna move on to regular painting.

      Hey guys. I'm back after having my wisdom teeth removed :/ nasty surgery had to have some recovery. But I started painting again and I was wondering; am I getting speckling here? It used to be really bad but I diluted down a touch and I think it's better. Could use some help.

      So for those of you who are experts on this kind of thing, I have a question that's bugging me a fair bit, and hoping to get a few answers.  Started using my Windsor and Newton Series 7 size 0 brush, which had pretty much a perfect tip to it when I bought it...  I have a few hours with this now, maybe 3, and it's been doing this since around the ten minutes in mark....
       

      ^That's how it looks right after I take it out of my paint water, and then blot the excess water off....  Well, about 95% of the time anyways, but still.
       

      ^This is what it does just lying on my desk within 2-3 minutes after the fact -well, about half the time anyways, sometimes it waits until paint goes on...
       

      ^For example of how the bristles go in odd directions and won't hold a point, this is right after a quick dip into one of the washes I'm working with at the moment, although usually the split is most of the way through the bristles.
       
       

      For reference, this is how it looked brand new (sadly, I don't have any shots of it out of the tube and with the protector off before initial use)
       
       
      So, a few questions come to mind:
      - What is happening with this?
      - Can it be fixed?
      - What can be done to prevent it from happening again?  Kind of... Okay, I won't lie, I'm rather annoyed (to use a forum appropriate wording) at a $25 CAD brush behaving in a manner none of my other brushes have (well, until they've seen a LOT of use)
       
      Thanks in advance!
