Can you airbrush Cerakote?
The Iwata Eclipse HP CS is the go to “artistic” airbrush. This airbrush can achieve fine details even with thicker products such as DuraCoat and Cerakote.
What air pressure do you use to airbrush?
The air pressure you should airbrush at for perfect results is the lowest pressure possible that still allows you to get a smooth and properly atomised paint flow from your airbrush, and typically ranges from between 10 psi to 25 psi depending on various factors.
Is Cerakote weatherproof?
Cerakote is a type of gun coating as well as a finish, so it’s kind of like a lacquer for your gun. It isn’t moisture proof, as blued steel needs a coat of water-repellant oil (such as a good gun lube or oil) to keep water out and rust from forming.
Is airbrushing easy?
Using an airbrush is not so easy when you just start working with an airbrush gun. An even line is applied with a steady hand. But a steady hand when airbrushing is not everything: you should also make sure that the paint supply is not too high so that the line does not run.
What PSI should I use for airbrushing miniatures?
For painting miniatures, a double-action airbrush will work with a PSI (pressure per square inch) between 0-35 PSI. A good air compressor that I recommend for airbrushing will calibrate to this air pressure range easily. For base coating or large surface area spraying, any PSI will work fine.
What size compressor do I need for airbrushing?
Most airbrush compressors produce less than 1 HP, with the majority having between 1/12 HP and 1/2 HP. For jobs in which you need a lot of air pressure, a compressor with at least a 1/6-HP output is desirable. Keep in mind that more HP means the compressor will be louder and larger.
What is the most durable gun coating?
Cerakote and similar ceramic coatings have several desirable physical qualities that make them ideal for firearms. The provide a hard, durable finish which is resistant to wear, corrosion, chemicals and impact damage. They improve lubricity, which means there’s less friction between moving parts.
