    I use a iwata cmc t .23 needle and my iwata hp-cs .23 needle. I reduce about 5to1 with the hpcs and a little more with the micron for the detail

    Hello HiraMahi As you have been told I also paint lures and use Createx colors and golden Hi-Flo,most of the time Just straining the paint thru a small piece of pantyhose will get you the paint you need to spray thru your airbrush as it will filter out the bigger pieces of paint that clog the airbrushAnd you can thin Createx with reducer to get finer details at a lower pressure,the golden I reduce with water. hope this helps you out,I spray most of the time at 30 psi for finer details I spray at around 10 psi

    A kiwi is
    1. A ground dwelling nocturnal flightless bird indigenous to New Zealand.
    2. The colloquial name for New Zealanders.
    3. The marketing name given to kiwifruit/chinese gooseberries

    Pick one, just don't try eating two of them... :)

    I use createx, wicked and Auto air for lures. 4012 reducer should help thin it out to make it spray better

    Not easier, it's thicker, and mostly metallics I use auto air. So you would have to reduce more.
