    Some time ago I filmed a how to thoroughly clean your double action airbrush tutorial as I saw so many comments asking how and thought i'd share my method which has worked well for me for the last 10 or so years leaving me a spotlessly clean brush in 10 min or less.
    At the time I was restricted by poor lighting, audio and average image quality so I thought it time to revisit it with higher er def video, better er sound and amazing CGI and special effects!
    (The CGI and special effects is not true though)

    Hope it's useful to someone.

    Thanks, hopefully it'll prove useful to a few people, it's surprising how easy it is once you have the routine down. I can pick up the brush, load paint spray and then have it pristine clean and back in it's box in less than 10 minutes knowing it's ready to go next time you pick it up too.

    Hi, gread vid.
    How about cleaning in between colors during the same session?
    An airbrush cleaner and some water will suffice?

    Nice one! I'll always watch vids on airbrush maintenance, just in case I see something I'd not seen before - and this was no exception - like the brush through the nozzle, that is a good one and will be added to my regime!!
