    Well I'm in trouble.

    Nail art, what's paint is best to use for it being hard wearing? Do you clear coat?

    What have I created?

    Evening Gentlemen , IVe done a pair of Sunglasses today , I'll post some images later, im happy though.

    But I do have a question - Im using mainly solvent paints , are there any large bottles of thinners that people tend to go for on the cheap to help with cleaning?

    I had a huge issue with a build up of paint today and learnt lots about where blockages happen etc but it took a while, currently paying about £12 for 500ml of thinners, is this a reasonable price? can i get 1l? 5l? at a more reasonable cost for clean ups etc?

    Cheers :)

    I'm not associated with the seller, so I hope its OK to post this link

    I understand this is the sort of thing I should be using for post spraying clean ups?

    Is that right?

    Sorry for so many unanswered posts, im just confused.i read before proper airbrush cleaning fluid is far stronger than thinners, but the stuff ive got Vallejho does nothing but clog up solvent paints , hence me asking about thinners to clean with

    You are certainly getting better at this spraying lark. As for thinners it depends what solvents your using. I would get some standard thinner, probably cellulose and some lovely 2k thinners which is what is used with inspire solvents and hok etc, Great for cleaning the guns out as it melts everything lol.. Depends where you are in the UK, Jawel paints is my local paint place. https://www.jawel.co.uk/ Gun wash is ok to clean stuff out. which I think you already have. Remember though, proper respirator and ventilation or extraction unit with filter,, its nasty stuff.
