How to clean airbrush with Future ?

07-16-2003, 02:10 AM
I plan to try airbrushing Future Klear with my airbrush. But what must I use to clean the airbrush afterwards ?

Water ? (I read in the FAQ that Future is a sort of acrylic clear coat) ?
Isopropylic Alcool ?

Is it necessary to thin it or are you using it directly ?

Water to rinse out the residue, then isopropyl alcohol to make sure its clean.

If its an acrilyc one like tamiya's you must thin it before apply it, and for clean the airbrush I use 96 alcohol (pharmacy one) its cheaper than isopropyl, and after this, if you want to take out the high dry grade of the alcohol, use a little of water and spray a little, its what I do, and the airbrush remains perfectly cleaned.

A good ammonia based window cleaner will also be good to clean the airbrush.

Use straight ammonia for cleaning and stripping Future(Johnson's Klear)

I always clean my Paasche airbrush with Denatured Alcohol (pure). this is the best for any Acrylic. But im sure Syndicate has some really dangerous way to do it:wink: :wink: :wink: sorry syndicate, just thought back to the lighter fluid thing...worst thing is... i tried it and there really arent fumes! but this is for enamel.... USE DENATURED ALCOHOL for Acrylics!
