    Hi everybody!
    I am so happy that i have to post this :laugh: I just got my new airbrush deliverd, instead of my Veda 180. Itś an Infinity Cr+ two in one 0.2-0.4.
    It will be interesting to see if i will notice any differens between the two, rather than the visual of course :thumbsup:

    Nice airbrush and congratulations, I would be VERY surprised if you don't notice any difference with the new airbrush.

    Congrats on your new toy. Mine came with a 0.15 and a 0.4 - the 0.15 is VERY delicate.

    I chose the 0.2 - 0.4 because i felt that 0.15 was a bit too fine, but will probably buy 0.15 anyway if i know my self :evil:

    I have tried it now, and i must say it feels so much better, everything feels so smooth and can do realy fine lines much easier than with the Veda 180! I still suffer from tip dry, but that is'nt the airbrush fault. I baught the Wicked Detail Pramary and Steve Driscoll Flesh Tone Set Paints although i got warned about the problem whit Wicked (They just sounded great so i had to buy them) and because i have no idea what i'm doin, i just buy stuff that sounds good :thumbsdown::D Anyone who has a solution to my paint problems, or do i have to buy new Paints?

    Great stuff. Enjoy.

    All paints has tip dry. Some more than others. And others just so slow that it feels that it is not happening. That one is E'tac EFX. You still get a bit with white and flesh though.

    I have tip dry only when I spray finest details and lines. When I paint with "full throttle" this problem not exist.
    For Schmincke AeroColor is there a retarder that delays drying.
    H&S Guns have's a good handling.

    I don't know what's available in Europe but down here we have our own brand of paint and they make a nice thin retarder that works great with Schmincke. Maybe look for something like similar. I know E'tac has a retarder but I don't know if it works with Schmincke.

    There is a bit of a learning curve with Wicked, but it is awesome. Make sure you have the 4012 reducer, and play around with your reduction. It will take some practice, but I hardly get any tip dry at all, opaque black is a little worse. Its well worth it IMO as I paint on pretty much anything. If you are only going to be painting on paper/board etc then you might prefer Illustration, Com-art or E'tac fx. But Wicked works great for that too, just bear in mind that if you want to erase it scratch you need to do it pretty much right away.

    Yes, I think it is 5607? I have never used it though. The 4020 is good for hot humid or cold conditions too.

    I have an infinity cr plus .15mm set up , but im not too sure if it will spray wicked detail. I also have a iwata hp-c plus with a .2mm setup, would that be more suitable for spraying wicked detail and auto air? and will i get fine lines and detail with it. Would love a micron but would rather spend the money on createx paint line. I want to paint helmets , goalie masks, guitars and motorcycles.

    Congrats on a Infinity CR, I have one of those with with all the optional needles/heads, etc., including the spatter cap. They are beautifully made, are they not? Like jewelry :)

    I use the same reducers as you in Createx illustration (W500/4012) along with 4020, but still suffer tip dry, especially when it is either colder, or the air is very dry (low humidity). It was recommended to me, that I also add a little 4030 intercoat to the mix, let it sit for a few minutes before using, and it has been helping quite a bit... I also added a humidifier to my studio, which I run if humidity drops below 45% and that has helped a BUNCH not just with the Createx, but all my paints.

    I have all the airbrushed you mentioned - and by far the one I use the most is the .2 Iwata set up, although I am using an HP-B+ instead of the C. I don;t feel like I am giving anything up vs. the Infinity when it comes to pulling detail. You probably need to work on the paint to reducer formula that works best in your area... maybe read the other comments I made above.
