I have a artist airbrush , and i want to spray on a high gloss finish -( with GUN-KOTE GUN METAL BLUE)- and i am wondering what the tecnique is for spraying on a high gloss finish ?

i.e. do I open the nozzle up to get more paint flow ?

I have done "flat" style GUN-KOTE finnishes before , and there is alot more margin for error

I dont want to under spray and have "cloudy" areas in finish --- im lookin for a even smooth overall glossy finish

any tips would be greatly appreciated !!

If your air brush is anything like the testors airbrush that you can buy at walmart, tighten the bottle all the way and back it out about a quarter of a turn, tighted the nozzle all the way and then back it out about half a turn, that was the best settings for me when i resprayed.

Get some junk metal and prep it for painting ....use that as a test piece....
This way you will see how far and how much of a spray pattern you will need...
If you are paying attention,,you will not waste alot of product...but it is better than screwing it up on the gun!!!
