NP...
I appreciated the info; I havent run in to rust, but I had never thought about lesser quality paints having that effect.

Well, it's the type of paint. Duracoat is a chemical, not really a paint. So you have to use something like that or your gun will rust.

actually though if you put a sealent on it will not rust at all as long done properly. Reason i know is because I am an airbrusher i used to do military models before getting into paintball, and many things i used were metal. DesertWookie you did a good job on this..but what is your propellent? compressor? anyways ive done digital camo for a couple guys bikes and snowboards and took the same steps as you did. Awesome job man.

Thanks. :D

I use an aircompressor. Initially it was a small desktop pasche unit.
later on i moved up to a larger pancake aircompressor an anautomotive detail airgrun.

I just recently bought an Iwata airbrush, so I will probably go back to my small desktop unit for detail work.

Iwata ehh woow your dealing with the big boys now.. I would say those are the best airbrushes for their price.. I broke my nozzle in july so since havent painted but i will be getting a new one in a week so i will be back painting. i myself have the Iwata Revolution, with the siphon feed.. Thats really cool, nice to know of other airbrushers on here. Keep us posted!

Its hard to put a number on it since it varies with the paint.
In general the idea is to provide enough paint to cover the previous color.
This seems to take me about 2 - 3 depending on the paint....

Hope that helps.

dude, AWESOME job on that post. VERY informative and easy to follow. best part is it looks like it actually works great. the example guns look awesome. you should start a side business and charge people to do it. charge enough to cover costs and make some money but not so much as that people go with one of the other places that offer the service. keep the price down and people will come to you for service. or just hook up your buds.

once again GREAT job on that post. :D

Yep, just a little side thing. Hard part is making cheap enough that people can afford it, but make it worth the time and effort to do it...

very cool, but I have a question. What is the point of digi camo, and why is it better than regular, say, realtree woodland or something?

digi camo looks cool, and that's why it's so big now.


in reality, it actually works great. I heard something along the lines of the pixels force the eye to become out-of-focus, and hiding you better......or something like that.

That's exactly true. The pixels mess with your eyes and mind to make you think that there's nothing there so an image won't register unless you really concentrate on a certain palce for a while. That's why the military uses it. It just works better.

In addition to that, the military discoverd that the pixelation helped fool night vision and that when the uniform was wet it was still a good camo.

*sniff*

its... beautifull!

why its better than regular woodland thats because its pixilated makeing you see the image as "background" noise instead of showing an outline.

its better than reall tree because real tree only works in the exate location it was made for so its still good but digi uses wider varity
