Over they years I have found that all yellows I try result in the same effect...it has to be me, but what am I doing wrong? In the case of the TS-16, there is no thinning, straight from the can after a solid 5 minutes shaking it
Hmmmm.... I'm wondering whether it is an air-brush/compressor issue?Gremlin wrote in the original post: there is no thinning, straight from the can after a solid 5 minutes shaking it
What pressure are you spraying at? Is there any moisture in the air flow? can you adjust the spray pattern? perhaps try a smaller/narrow spray pattern. Maybe you need to use a lower pressure? Instead of spraying a model, get a sheet of styrene and tray out a few of these variables see if that changes anything.
Back to paint... I note that you have shaken the paint. Have you actually tried stirring the paint? I have this mini power tool paint stirrer which mixes the paint far better than what shaking will do. Some yellows will get a solid particle layer that needs to get mixed in. What about trying a different brand of paint???
Everything else seems right. Grey primer is always what I recommend.
Hope this helps.
