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.
So I'm painting up this mini to represent an elven druid for a PC in my campaign. She has a focus on winter and ice powers, so I thought I'd paint her up in fall colors (green, through yellow/orange/red, into brown, plus some icy blue/white). Unfortunately, this ended up being a really horrible and garish looking motley. I'd really rather not repaint her entirely, in part because I think that from the back, she actually looks pretty good, and I really like the almost gem-like quality of her robe-thing. Also, I'm just frustrated and want to be done with this mini. She's definitely the worst Bone I've painted yet; I don't like the sculpt to begin with, and then she's covered in these weird bumps and stuff (though at least she had her nose). Anyway, it seems to me that there are probably way too many different colors on her, but I'm not sure what to simplify to get the most bang for my buck in terms of redoing work. Thoughts?
