Cleaning the Airbrush and Keeping It in Good Condition
Good results and a long, dependable service from your airbrush depend on how
well you take care of it. Aside from taking care not to drop it or crush it
with something heavy, the most important part of maintaining an airbrush is
cleaning it. For people familiar with guns or other types of mechanical machinery,
cleaning includes regularly disassembling it, wiping, oiling or coating each
part with the appropriate chemical, then putting it back together again properly.
To take proper care of the airbrush, the first simple step is to read the manufacturer's
manual and get to know the different parts, how they fit together and what to
clean them with.
There are two ways to clean an airbrush: regular, in-use cleaning, and special
periodic or “deep” cleaning. Regular cleaning is what you do whenever
you use it. One expert advises to “clean it while it's wet” to avoid
a lot of problems later. The steps to remember for this type of cleaning are:
Clean whenever you change colors. Dump the excess color out of the cup and
pour cleaning solution into it. Wipe the cup using paper towels or a cotton
swab. Add cleaning solution to the cup and spray it through the airbrush until
it runs clear. Pour out whatever solution is left and spray until dry. [read
