Mass production
« on: 01/17/18 18:21 UTC »
Ok, with the latest airbrush craze going on, what’s everyone’s preferred method for pumping out large numbers of jigs? Do most people prefer to powder paint quantities or airbrush? What are your methods of doing each to maximize output and save time? Thinking it might be time to dust off the Iwata and get to work. Have close to 1000 jigs to get done, was wondering which method would knock some time off this task.

No way can you airbrush as quick as you can powder paint. When I want quantity, it’s powder paint time. When I want quality, the airbrush has its place.

Powder unless the jig has scale patter like the dinner shiner or ultra shad than air brush.

Either way, it's going to take a good amount of time to paint 1000 pieces so whichever route you go be patient and take your time.
