    I use a regular brush as opposed to a sponge brush. The ridges a conventional brush leaves behind help build up the coats. However be sure to clean the brush or else yull ruin it.

    I agree.. to a certain point. You don't want blobs or liquid mask in spots. I place my bodies in front of an electric heater between coats of mask and the blobs tend to create a problem when cutting.

    I use 5 coats with a 1 inch wide cheap paint brush. I tried the foam brushes but didn't have much luck. I have also gone "too thin".. what a mess.

    cowebbing is due to the pressure your applying to the airbrush... if your using faskolor try around 40psi and cowebbing wont show up

    for the carbon fiber fx look here.. its a nice tip
