Default RE: Spray paint or brush paint?

You can attach a paint jar or small paint cup to most airbrushes. The paint would need to be thinned. I use non-toxic acrylic paint for spraying, and I usually thin the paint with plain water, 2/3 part paint to 1/3 part water, which usually gives me the best result spraying at 22 psi. My airbrush is connected to a small hobby compressor with auto shut off. For best result, you want to get an air compressor that has a built in air holding tank.
