Sounds like a fantastic AB. That biting point will change each time you load your brush because of the different types and consistencies of the paints.

I'm still new to airbrushing as I've spent most of my life using hairy sticks to get similar results to airbrushing. I use an Iwata Neo which is a good starter brush.

There is quite a learning curve lol. Just remember to enjoy it and relax.

OK. Newbie question that I'm sure must have been asked before. I've been given a large box of Rowney artists paints. Some oils, some acrylics. Any reason why I cant use these for weathering washes, pinwashes, etc. or is there something special about the versions sold for our modelling?

Hello.. for wath is about the artists oilpaints, try to use fast drying odorless turpentine or lighter fluid. Sometimes it is better to try to get rid of some the oil contained in it by laying down your oilpaint paste on a piece of cardboard that will soak the excess of oil before using it. Don't know about artist acrylics, but they can be used for ruff weathering I think.

Lighter fluid! That's a new one on me! The stuff I remember my dad using in the little cans with the swivel spout was very smelly.

Yes... never use it myself but heard about it on several tutorials it was used instead of enamel thinner wich smells awfull aswell. I tryied to use odorless artists turpentine but mine doesn't dry quick... can take a couple of days before drying. So I will try with lighter fluid and also try to get rid of the excess of oil in my artits oilpaints before using them. This is wath I learned by my mistakes and by watching some tutorials on the web (after things went wrong 😂🤣😅)

You can use both but for different purposes. Oils can be diluted as per the suggestions above and used for streaking, leaks, and pin washes Acrylics can be mixed with water and a drop of soap to make a sludge wash to bring out panel lines and rivets.premixed products are consistent and save time mixing and storing. It’s your choice. I do like Tamiyas panel line wash. Many people use the flory washes also.
Note: heavily diluted oils should not take long to dry. Some modelers have used India ink for pin washes . Best plan? Get a really cheapo 1/48 airplane and practice using all the products. Google how to use oil paint to weather scale models, then replace oil with acrylic or any other product.

I used Daler Rowney acrylics through my airbrush before. They lay down fine once you figure out the paint to water ratio, and they are different for every color.

If you ever feel the need to mix your own colors, they will work. As for the oils, I use them for washes too. They work well over an acrylic resin clear coat like that of Vallejo, which I'm primarily switched to now except for some good reliable Tamiya pots, of course.
