Default airbrush part

I just bought me an airbrush but the manual didn't say anything about how
every parts is used for. My question is what is the used of a part that looks
like a tabacco cup. I am thinking its used for cleaning.

That's where you put the paint. It's a paint cup.

The cup holds a smaller amount of paint and its easier to clean. Use the cup IMO. The bottle is for bigger jobs.

Yup, what was said. But to add to that I find that you get a smoother and more consistant flow of paint from the cup than with the bottles. You need less air pressure as well. I only use the cup. Every now and then I try the bottles but then I am reminded of why I don't use them.
