The Omega red is a tough paint up, when I gave a quote on one the guy quickly found someone else to do it for half of my price.

Really? well you sure make it look easy. What are airbrush are you using? I have the hardest time doing the fine line shading.

I have 3 different air brushes, the sotar 20/20 for fine detail, I have a badger 100g fine tip for spraying laquers and candy coating, then a 100g medium tip I use for base coating.
the tricks are lowering air pressure and thinning your shading colors with alcohol so it doesn't go on so thick.

yeah I've thinned it out quite a bit but it never seems to give me a great fine line, when I do it on paper it works just fine but when I do it on a figure it seems to not work as well.
