The airbrushing effort proved to be a far miss. First, the inexpensive airbrush that I had bought a long time ago didn't allow for more or less paint to be dispersed. Second, metallic acrylic paints, even though they were significantly thinned, dispersed unevenly. Third, the compressor had to be going full tilt all the time before any paint would come out of the point. I needed to hook the compressor up to an air storage tank, but since the airbrush was ineffectual, it seemed pointless to waste more time on this particular airbrushing effort.
