    I use Krylon Fusion Camo flat black as a primer, it works great and is very durable.

    But now I have an airbrush, I was wondering if I decant this and airbrush it, Will it loose it's quality?

    If not, does it require thining? if so, what kind of thinner do I use and what ratio?

    i also use this as a primer. it is really good stuff but i dont decant for my airbrush i just use it as a spray and everything else such as tamiya paints used in the airbrush.

    i also want to try the flat white if anyone has that info!

    i decant it, it dries super fast, so you might wanna dilute it a little with lacquer thinner. You might need to sand afterwards too,

    Do you like this Fusion better? Or the Tamiya Primer?

    this works really good out of the can, it's also much cheaper than tamiya primer and i think more durable.

    I tried and decanted a batch, then thinned with paint thinner...

    I kinda noticed it scratched faster compared to the sprayed one... maybe its my ratio of paint thinner, do you think lacquer thinner would work better?

    I only use Tamiya's paints for washes, and that's rare.

    I always use lacquer thinner. I think your paint's giving you problems because it's drying up too quickly. The air brush mixes in a lot of air, cutting the dry time a bunch.

    Do you mind if I ask you what paint and clear coat you use? I love how yours come out looking Flat and not shinny

    most of the time mike uses house of kolor paints i think, and i also think the flatness of the finish is how its thinned and the future clearcoat?
