I have used this one also

the learning curve isn't long to use them. Practice on cardboard or plywood.


If your doing a burst start with 2 coats of clear then start with the lighter color
I do a soft yellow brown over the top then darker colors and work out.

the trick is to know when to stop

I do my burst work with them. An airbrush is too small for me for that job. I use my air brush for touch up work. I use a StewMac air brush, I like the hose on it better than others.
