Volpin's Top Tip #1 - Commercial Spray Paints for Airbrushing

If you like the color in a commercial brand spraypaint but the nozzle sputters and spits, turn the can upside down and clamp the nozzle to release all the propellant. Once it's depressurized you can drill a couple holes in the can and dump out all the paint inside for use in an airbrush. Much finer spray pattern and easier to control as well.

Make sure to drill two holes - one to pour and one to vent - and store your paint in an airtight container. NEVER DRILL INTO A PRESSURIZED CAN!
