    Paint beading

    So the last couple of times I've used my citadel spray gun I've had issues with the paint beading. I used the spray gun before a couple of times and didn't have this problem. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    I have 2 ideas but I'm not sure if this is the issue.
    1. I haven't let the primer dry long enough before spraying the minis
    2. I'm thinning the paints too much (I don't think this is the case as I haven't been too far off the indications on the glass jar that comes with the spray gun)

    If anyone has come across this or a similar problem and could help me out I would be really thankful!

    This only ever happens to me when either the paints to thin, as youve said. Or if the models greasy. That usualy happen is your playing with primed models and like me snack when playing. Crisp/chip grease or even good old hand sweat all makes paint less likly to stick. I always clean them with warm soapy water before painting.

    Well I didn't touch the models at all between priming them and painting them, so I'm guessing the paint is too thin.
    Thanks for the input and I'll give it a go with a thicker mixture and see if that helps!
