O.k. I just wanted to start by saying thanks to those that looked and responded to my new dude post.... I got my stuff yesterday and after I got all set up in the cardboard box in the storage room. (that's my space..). and got to making dots and lines and dots and lines... ... who would have thought that making dots and lines would be so much fun. I went through all three tip and needle sizes and just had a blast. But now that I could do a dot and a line, I thought I was doing well and wanted to do my first picture. ... Funny guy... I saw a video on how to do lightning. I took my regular piece of printer paper and sprayed it a splotchy black. There was about 3 drops of black left in the glass so I added 4 drops blues and one white... shook and did my lines of travel. then made them wider. I added another drop white and did another layer a little smaller. Repeated a few more times and cleaned gun and change to a .2 and put 4 drops white and one drop blue. made a bright pass then added a white drop and did a finer light pass. cleaned out gun and put 4 drops white in. Now this is where things got interesting, (I am using Testor Aztek paint.). I did the top fork first and went till I want to split and stopped then continued to do bottom fork and went till I wanted a split. things where awesome. did a kickoff on the bottom and it went well, then when I the finale on bottom I got a big splooge.... Damn. I cleaned out gun and put new white in and while finishing the top (I wanted to accent a small piece and splat!!! !*^%#!. I look at my tip and I have stringy paint hanging from my tip. uggg .... is this the paint doint this? I have to clean out my gun every 10-15 min.
