Keep at it A.N. Looking good. Once you get these basics down it becomes a lot less frustrating when working on a project. I still practice the dagger stroke at times. Another thing to play with is you reduction and psi. Get comfortable with how your airbrush sprays at different psi to how much your paint is reduced and practice real fine clean lines as well. The lower the psi the closer you can get to the surface without skating,but reduction has to be right to flow at lower psi. Keep at it and it will pay off in the end. Hope this helped.
