    Wicked by Createx makes pearls and metallics and sprays very nicely from my Eclipse BCS when reduced.

    createx classic series pearls and metallic all need a larger needle, like the Eclipse BCS mentioned above and properly reduced

    I would just buy the .60mm kit for your H&S for now and save a little cash.
    The Eclipse series can be converted. Just remember to purchase the PTFE "O" ring ( Needle Packing Set)as well. Most suppliers sell full conversion kits.

    Thank you a lot for the answer.

    When i paint on paper i have lot of problem of control with my actualy H&S, i asked for new airbrush and lot of people in the forum adviced me to buy the eclipse.

    The kit for my H&S cost about 50 euro.
    For painting lire is ok, but for painting paper i have lot of problem to make sharp and shadow...

    The Eclipse series is a great brush. If you are looking for detail, the Eclipse CS (.35mm) would be ideal. As well as it has a larger cup for you if you decided to convert it to BCS (.50mm).
    There are other Iwata brushes that are capable of finer detail, but this would be a good starting point.

    I'm at a loss... Do you mean lube/oil?.
    Or do you mean Fast Blast containers?
    Lube generally comes with the airbrush, but the blue super lube tends to gum up. So keep it away from the air valve with it. I prefer either to use the Anesta Iwata spray gun lubricant or Snap-On Air Motor Oil (IM1PT). The Snap-On oil is good and contains no silicone.

    No need to apologize :)
    You can do something I can't ... And that's write and speak two languages ;)
    The airbrush is ready to go... You may need a new hose to fit the Iwata or an adapter would be the cheaper choice.

    The reducer I primarily use is the High Performance Reducer 4012 ( 1AA-A16.02.17). I would buy the 16 fl.oz.(460ml). You will use a lot of it ;)
    I use this stuff all the time and can double as a cleaning agent for your airbrush.
    I'm glad I can help out and it never hurts to ask :)
