I just bought a Paasche paint gun starter kit. I have wasted 2 cans of air on this thing. I can't get any air to come out of the gun. I have air coming out of the hose when i hook it up to the can, but when i put the hose on the gun and press the button, it won't let any air come out.

I use Createx paint and I cut it with some thinner, but it won't even go up the tube in the jar to be pumped to spray...

What am i doing wrong or what am i missing?

If you're talking about the Paasche Air Brush, it only uses about 15 PSI and the paint has to be thinned to almost the cinsistency of water.

try using only water. I only played once with a airbrush, but I think there is adjustment for the air flow / paint flow. Check out the instructions to see if that is the case.

Are you sure that your air connection is right? Don't ask me I used a compressor and no air cans.
