How to Maintain Your Airbrush

Between colors: Water works great.

Rinse the color cup with water until airbrush runs clear, spraying out excess. Now, you’re ready for a new color.

When Day’s Done: Water + Cleaner

At the end of every day, use airbrush cleaner followed by water for a more thorough cleaning. Make it a regular habit to help prevent future hassles.

Below are some common questions about the airbrushes we offer. For more information, fill out our contact form or call one of our DecoPac® Experts at 1-800-DecoPac.
You can also shop all airbrush supplies.

Can I submerge my airbrush in water to clean it?

No, the airbrush cannot be submerged in water or it will rust. The front two pieces of the airbrush and the needle can be removed and cleaned using hot water or DecoPac CleanAir® solution. Submerging an airbrush voids the warranty.

Can I put paste or gel colors in my airbrush?

No, only use airbrush colors, no pastes or gels.

My airbrush is running but nothing is coming out. What could the problem be?

Check your airbrush for common issues:

  • Has it been assembled correctly and are all the pieces present?
  • Is the correct needle in the airbrush? Is it bent or damaged?
  • The needle should be pushed all the way forward and move with the trigger.
  •  Use airbrush colors, not gels or pastes.
  •  Is the airbrush clean?
