My advice = This is an "HP" air brush... from the Iwata site please TAKE NOTE
"the Eclipse CS sprays heavier acrylics and textile paints, while maintaining high-detail spray characteristics"
emphasis on "heavier acrylics"
This is not a bad thing. But what this does mean, is that you do NOT want to thin your paint too much for this brush. I started out using it and thinning citadel paints at about a 1:1 ratio. This is NOT what you want to do. Don't be afraid to put too thick of a paint in here, so that the brush can give you a consistent spray. Of course your compressor matters, but when you put too thin of paint, the air flow cannot "grab" onto it at the right pressure and you end up "drying" your paint before it hits the model or whatever you're painting. By using a thicker paint, the air flow "grabs" onto it better and your paint leaves the brush before it gets dried by the natural air pressure.
What can happen if you you thin too much:
-the paint will dry in the nozzle cap faster
-the paint won't grab onto the surface of your subject (this can result in the paint getting pushed around by the airbrush after it hits your subject)
-the paint flow will be inconsistent
-the finish on your paint will be particularly shiny
I'm not a professional artist, but just bottom line: don't thin your paint TOO much.
My suggestions: buy a compressor with a tank. You don't want one that runs constantly. Those fluctuate in pressure as well, not good. A pancake compressor is more than adequate..
Get the quick disconnect set. It not only allows you to take the airbrush off the hose to clean it, it also allows the airbrush to swivel on the hose getting rid of any kinks.
Get then water trap/filter/gauge combo attachment. Set it to 20 psi and start airbrushing. Without it you're going to have water, compressor oil, black specks, and other nasty stuff gumming up your hose and your airbrush. All of these items, even the pancake compressor can be bought right alongside this airbrush on amazon. Pretty convenient!
