Spatter on Purpose


Gravity Guru
Here is trick I picked up. Wrap a piece of tape around the end of your airbrush making a tube. This will catch the paint and cause it splatter off the end of the tape. You can also use a piece of plastic or rubber hose to achieve the effect. Of coarse air pressure and tube length/diameter will all have an affect. It seems way easier to control the placement of the spatter this way. Experiment and see what works for you.

Haven't tried this way before, I usuall just kink my airline and flick my trigger a bit, but will give this a try, thanks J.
Great idea. If this keeps up I'll soon be a sand Ninja..:triumphant:
Hmmm, I seen on a website today a "stencil" for drips and spatters....I thought to myself, heck I don't need a stencil for that, I do that without one lol
