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.

Does look a little speckled, how far away was the airbrush? may need to get closer?

I was pretty close and I didn't want it too focused, like when you're super close. Would turning up the pressure help?

Things to try would be turning the pressure up, turning it down, thinning the paint more, thinning the paint with something different.

what type of brush are you using?

 

With my Grex and Iwata, I try to spray at around 5psi....

 

also what is your air source?

 

Do you have a moisture trap?

My brush is a Paasche TG-3F Double action, wow I've never tried that low. Lowest I've gone is like 10-12. Air source is the compressor that came with it. I don't have a moisture trap, is it necessary? It's not very humid where I live. EDIT: Just realized you meant on the compressor. Yes, it came with it. It was a package deal designed for airbrushes.

      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.

      Do It With a Deep One!  
      Hot single deep ones in your area are looking to meet you! And Petersen Games can help. We’ll ship you an Undersea Contact Device. Simply say the prayer as shown below, and drop the device (made of durable rock!) into the nearest large body of water. If a Deep One settlement is close enough, you’ll be getting a midnight visit within the following week. Be sure to affix your name and address to the rock, so your aquatic pals can find you more quickly. It’s just that easy! Your new friends will initiate you into the Cult of Dagon. 
      Once you’ve taken the Third Oath of Dagon, you’ll get a Deep One of your very own to have and to hold. Until death do you part.  
      And your kids will live forever!  
      That’s right. Any offspring from this unhallowed union will start out looking just like cute little human babies, the type everyone loves. Of course, human children eventually grow up, and get less cute, and these do the same. They just take a different path towards un-cute-ness! 
        
      The Prayer
      When you drop the device into the water, just say this prayer! (You might want to write it down and keep it on hand, for convenience.)
       
      Be sure to say it perfectly, or it might not work. Petersen Games is not liable for the side effects of mispronunciations.
