Question by james b: Help with airbrush painting?
Yesterday I started my first painting by airbrush to paint my plastic model ( military battleship) ,when I finished painting the hull of the ship & waited the paint to dry ,I noticed that there was paint’s dust on the hull& when I wipe the hull with my finger there was color’s dust on my finger ,is that normal ? or did I do something wrong?
although I did every thing mentioned on the airbrush manual & every experienced one I asked , I thinned a little bit the tamiya paint (acrylic paint), keep distance from the object (10-15 cm) , multi coating painting & I turned the trigger of the airbrush counter clockwise to widen the painting.
Finally I needed to brush the hull with soft brush & tissue to clean the body hull of the ship from the dust.
So what is that normal ? or did I do something wrong?

Try a new bottle of paint.
Do not shake acrylic paint. Stir it.
If your cleaning process resolved your problem, you are lucky!
