Sorry guys, another question has occurred to me. I usually use meths, white spirit or Tamiya thinners to clean (depending on what paint I am spraying). Are these all OK to use or should I be looking for a "proper" airbrush cleaner?
IMHO the simple answer is, enamels can be cleaned effectively with white spirit. I occasionally use half a cup of cellulose thinners to deep clean my AB.
For acrylics, there are many options; proprietary cleaners, screenwash, Mr Muscle window cleaner, IPA... the list goes on!
Personally I wouldn't worry too much about it. Most people blame their airbrush for spraying problems, when really it's the paint that's causing the problem.
