Anyone know how much to thin createx paint to best run through a sotar
So would your brand of paints work better? Thats an honest question are ur paints formulated to work with fine tips
Also I got a second 20/20 couldn't resist, what tip would you suggest illustration only, waterbase paints
Its been a lot of trial and error...
Tip dry is like you said Ken a big problem,
I am getting close as to the proper thinning/air pressure or at least I think I am. the notable exception is White, I suppose the pigment grain size is different for white but even at water consistentcy it gives me problems. on average I am thining 2.5 water to 1part paint with another.25 to .5 Wagner paint easy. It does really make a difference on the way the paint flows. I have transparent also but haven't tried it yet.
I have also started filtering the paint once through a coffee filter then through a foam filter.
I have a second 20/20 also with a fine tip, ( Haven't even opened the package yet) I get some money up will get a medium or large tip.
I guess the big question is how far can you thin acrylic paints before you break down the bonding agents. I mean paper and other absorbing surfaces are not a problem but as you said others could be a problem
Oh by the Way Ken I use my phone and tablet to check the forum out, the result is i don't proof read my posts as well as i should, I in no way meant to back you in a corner asking about your paints. I was only asking if they were using a finer ground pigments or in some way more of a illustration based paint. Please Please forgive me if it sounded as though I was attacking you or your company.
Thank You for taking time to answer my questions and a great brush
