First things first, what setup/paint/psi do you use?

It could be one of these things for example:

- Too much/little thinner
- Blocked nozzle / no clean airbrush
- Bent needle
- Too high/low psi
- Dirty paint, try straining it
- Paint is just plain to big to fit through the nozzle

Or you have cleaned your airbrush and there is still water in the airbrush, the water half mixes with the paint and causes spitting or spidering.

If it's spidering then your paint is too thin or try reducing your preasure to about 15 PSI first or maybe using a transperant base will bring you paint back to life. Black and white are the hardest to get right but keep at it and you'll get there...

If you don't tighten the nozzle cap and needle cap all the way down, it will essentially set the needle tip and nozzle further back into the airbrush. By having the tip further in, you may get paint build up on the needle cap that will blow off when you release the needle.


I only made a diagram with the needle cap moved out, but the nozzle cap not being threaded down can do the same. And together it can make a big difference in how the air/paint mix leaves the airbrush.
Mike Learn from MOJO talks about adjusting how the paint flows on the new Mojo III for more detail with this concept, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TH8b1LWdFgU

This is exaggerated, but I hope this helps...
