What do you use to dilute your paint for air brushing and in what ratio?

What PSI do you use on the compressor?

Just got mine ready to try but before I ruined models and wasted paints I thought I should ask

Dilution depends on the pain you're using. They always say that you want a milk like consistency.

PSI is typically 20-30 depending on what the Airbrush recommends.

I usually use a 50/50 mix paint/thinner. Some people use distilled water, Windex window cleaner(the blue stuff). I use Testors acrylic thinner. I spray at 20 psi. Hope this helps!

Just remember to test spray on cardboard or whatever you have before spraying a model.
Runny? Add more paint.
Spraying spotted/splotchy? More thinner.
It's really that easy. Enjoy.
