Evolution leaking paint

hi guys,

so i was working happily on my comp piece, coming along really nice, and i noticed the evolution kept clogging up with wicked detail white (not pressure or thinning problems) so i stopped to take a look and i saw that the white paint leaked out the reservoir to the back and came out around the trigger making a real mess. Since its also spraying less good than before i thought it would be a better idea to stop and ask it.

Its a .15 evolution

I have had that too Rick, and with the same airbrush, in my case I discovered a tiny amount of hard paint in deep in the nozzle and a ring of dried paint around the nozzle cap, this cased air and paint to be forced backwards into the trigger housing just as here, I think it's also possible that your trigger housing seal is a little looser than it needs to be.

I would suggest stripping it down and a meticulous cleaning (grote beurt) paying attention deep into the nozzle and inside of the cap.

I had all kinds of problems with my Evolution and I've discovered that because the nozzle is so long compared to my other brushes I wasn't getting in deep enough to clean it, and even though I though it was clean, that just wasn't the case.

I hope you get it sorted, it's too expensive a toy to have this happen, it looks like a bomb site on the photos, but it's not as bad as it looks, lol

Excellent, I'm glad you got it sorted, mine is easier to maintain now that I take that crazy long nozzle into account, I hated it at the start but now it's a super brush.

No thanks necessary, we are all her to keep each other pumping out masterpieces, lol, and good luck with the comp.
