    Airbrush clogging

    Hey Reaper-forum-brain, I have had an airbrush for a good year now. I have learned quite a bit about it, but lately I have a problem. I have read articles and watched all the videos about airbrush care, etc. But my nozzle seems to be clogging. Here are the symptoms: - Without a nozzle (but with needle) it works fine. It blows well and hard. So this is why I am ruling out the airfeed or the compressor. I have gone from 15-30 PSI to see if that mattered any. - I have cleaned all the bits of my airbrush with my ultrasonic cleaner. They should all be clear, the only thing that is hard to see is the nozzle. And I mean the nozle not the nozzle cap. - So if i attach my nozzle to the airbrush it already sprays less air, which makes sense with the small hole - If I use water... thinner, or other stuff I spray... ok... - If I add paint, bam it goes to a small line and then just nothing. And I do thin it using more then 50% Vallejo Airbrush Thinner. I have also tried it without thinning, etc. I have had this work in the past. - There is no visible paint on the needle. - The needle/nozzle I am using is 0.5 and 0.4. They do the same thing. I just keep cleaning, getting stuck again, and getting really annoying. Any ideas? It is a Evolution, see picture.

    Airbrush clogging

    Well I can push a needle through, that is not the point but I can't seem to actuyally remove any of the paint/ink that I suspect is in there. :/

    Airbrush clogging

    I get the idea the problem might be in the nozzle being dirty or something. I can't seem to keep being able to see from one end of it through to the other. I can unplug it temporarily, but I think it clogs semi immediately again. Implying some sort of dirt. I am thinking it might be that I have used inks a few times over the past month? Regardless I left it in airbrush cleaner, but no dice. Any pro tips as to how to heavily clean a nozzle for the evolution? These things are like... 5mm wide? And look roughly like this:

    I think I did as the video said (Thanks for the link btw). I guess I will go over it a few times. The backblasting is tricky. First sleep, then afterwards, more cleaning.

    Technomancer

    I painted this dude up as my technomancer for our Starfinder campaign. The idea is his coat is very tech-ey. I used a Bones Chronoscope miniature and modded in some antenna. Also slightly purple skin, cause this is a Lashunta.

    Reaper Bones 5: Information Thread

    Question, since I could not seem to find it on the KS page and the comments there go WAY too fast: "What is up with the "europe (NOT UK)" and "UK (not EUROPE)" pledge levels? I have a feeling it is something to do with Brexit? I am curious because it would affect strongly how much I have to pay at the door.

    99 Days, 99 Minis Challenge

    Hey speedpaint or no, it is a mini! :)
  10. So I tend to prime with airbrush black primer then zenethal with airbrush white primer. Works ok, but sometimes it gives some grainy effect. Now I got this ink, titanium white ink, which I've seen people use to do the zenethal instead. I tried, but it is just way too watery and it.. well the effect is not good and quite slow. The ink took me 5 minutes, the white primer zenethal took me a minute max. You notice how wet the left, ink, picture still is. It is hell to airbrush with the way I am using it. Has anyone got experience with this sort of airbrushing? What am I doing wrong?
  11. So! This is my attempt at getting some fire lit under my behind and get to painting. I love miniature painting, been doing it... 15 years? Probably more if I count my Warhammer history. At some point I went from 'painting to game' to 'game to paint'. :) I have a lot of miniatures and a lot ambition. Unfortunately I also have a job that I love and I spend a lot of time with. When I do not though... I like to paint. I also like to GM, in the last years I have finished Serpent's Skull (Paizo AP), well at the time of writing the final session has been planned. I am also running Skull & Shackles, another Paizo AP. I have strongly modified book 6, which is where my PCs are at the moment. So that one is ending soon as well. Then I plan to take a break, maybe a year. Let some of the players run one-shots, a module, etc. Recharge the juices. :) Something that has been on my mind since it came out though was me wanting to run Wrath of the Righteous, a Paizo AP about a demon invasion/liberation thing. It is their mythic AP, basically a right good excuse to have the most epic demons, spellcasters, landscapes, etc. And of course, me being me, that gets in my head and I want to run it... Sure. But I want to run it fully painted and pretty. Not likely to happen, but I can try. I've been half-sassed trying to get stuff painted for... a while now. Ok years. I want to catalog the 'journey' a bit more. So I shall start a painting log specifically about the AP. So: Spoilers for the 'Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path' for Pathfinder from here on in. Complete spoilery expected! *** *** *** *** Alright then. I have already finished painting a bunch of minis for the campaign. I shall get to re-posting those pictures sometime soon. I wanna get my hands dirty a bit again first. So I am focussing on the models Reaper Miniatures made specifically for WotR. Right now I have Xanthir Vang, a worm that walks from book 3, and Aravashnial, an NPC from book 1 onward on my table. I am also painting another Reaper miniature as Horgus Gwerm, a wealthy merchant. The miniature is actually a, I think, limited miniature specifically for Pathfinder Society. A friend in PFS gave it to me, cause he knew I love minis. It is called Grandmaster Torch, and was a 2010 Paizocon exclusive. :) Instead of creating a thousand-and-one WIPs I am going to just throw it all in here. :) So to get things started. The three characters on my desk atm! Horgus Gwerm (rich merchant) Not available in the Reaper store :( Aravashnial (an elf caster) Available here: Aravashniel, Elf Wizard Xanthir Vang (Worm-that-walks) Available here: Xanthir Vang

    Wrath of the Righteous painting log

    The statues are now done and posted in the Show-Off forum: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88178-16-bones-4-statues/ I have now put together 8 Bones crusaders with some mods. Changed some weapons, a head, and custom bases. All are now primed and ready to get painted. :) They are based on 32mm bases, but will be counting as medium. Their poses are just too big otherwise. :) The paintscheme will be white and red with some golds.

    Primer vs Ink zenethal

    !!! Ok Al Capwn is a saviour! Turns out... I did shake it, like a bunch... well it needed another minute of it. There was indeed barely any pigment. It sprays perfectly now :D! Thanks everyone!

    Primer vs Ink zenethal

    Alright! So I am not good at pressure stuff. :) I moved it from low and to the highest. There is no difference in the wateryness of the ink. Though lower pressure does make it go .. well slower you know. :) Here is a screenshot of how it looks (and remember this is one of the options, it goes up to 50 on the black) So I have no clue what a psi is on this, but also the highest and lowest settings still have the same effect. :/

    Primer vs Ink zenethal

    I am going to look into this tonight when I get back from work. :) Last night I unfortunately fell asleep on the couch immediately and... well didn't have time. :) Thanks for the advice, will let you know.

    Primer vs Ink zenethal

    I do not delude the ink at all. I do not know what pressure I use. I am not very experienced with airbrushing. I have a compressor... I would have to check the gauge on it I think. @Doug Sundseth

    I agree. Lemme fix.

    Primer vs Ink zenethal

    @Cicciopiu: I got a few bottles of Daler Rowney indeed. Yet it does not dry at all with my application method. I have seen video of people airbrushing it and it just does not work like that with mine. I am spraying such a watery liquid at the model that I can see the drops being blown over the model. :(

    Fertility Idol

    I recently painted this fertility idol from Bones 4. Just for fun. Technically they are stone statue boobies, but boobies are boobies. CLICK HERE FOR VIEW FROM THE FRONT <--- (Stone) NUDITY Here is 'her' back though. :) PS: Couldn't find her in the store atm, maybe not released yet?

    Wrath of the Righteous painting log

    Right so in may I started work on a certification for work that I love (OSCP/hacking basically) and it took me a lot of time. So I basically have not painted for months. I am nearing the exam date and I just had to do something. So I grabbed my 16 Bones 4 statues, unbent them, removed mold lines, airbrushed on primer, gave it a yellow layer, added 2 layers of bronze and this is where I am at. These are planned to be decor for WotR. These are not done yet. :)
