Hi Martin

Have some questions

1. What type of spray glue did you previously use and what type of air brush do you use now?
2. What type of tacky glue do you use and do you dilute it for the air brush.

Pictures would be handy if possible please, hope you don't mind answering.

Kind regards Dan

Missed the questions Dan..sorry

For sprayglue I use the cheapest around here, they from smonekinda discounter store called Action..but if you want the best I would go for 3M..

The airbrush, use Sparmax airbrushes, DH 102 and 103, cheap but great to work with, if Mig Jiminez says theyre good I believe him..

Tacky glue, for the fibers / grasses I believe, use an acrylic binder the base for making acrylic paint, order online from a german supplier for artist materials called Gersteacker..or a kids / school glue from a French brand Cleopatre, use their Cleocolle

Hi Martin

Thank you for your reply.

Glad it was just a small air brush as I have an old spare, thought it was a special type for industry work.

3M is that spay mount type?

How much do you water down the tacky glue 75% glue to 25% water or 50/50?

Sorry for the Questions

Cheers Dan

Do have some industrial airbrushes but they are for my 1:1 jobs, compressor works great tho with the small ones with a 300 liter drum...

Most of my time I have my tacky glue rather thin, bit like yoghyurt you can drink..not really a ratio in it. Do mix the acrylic binder 50 /50. Search long enough and you find a UK shop..http://www.greatart.co.uk/Gerstaecker-Acrylic-Binder.html
