I notice a few guys buying quality airbrushes, and whilst I am NO expert Ive found a good cleaning method whilst
working that removed quite a bit of frustration for me.

As I work in the same room as Stevie I very rarely use anything but Acrylic paint. Because they dry so fast,
when airbrushing the paint tends to dry at the tip of the needle causing blockage which I used to remove with
a cotton bud (Q tip) soaked in thinner.

However I discovered that if you dab the tip of the airbrush into a kitchen sponge this removes the dry paint
and quickly allows you to continue working.

Second time today I had to admit I never thought of this, but I'm an AB rookie so I can forgive myself more easily, lol. Thanks Gary!

That's a good tip Gary. Recently had problems and this would have solved it. Thanks.
