Iwata Hi-Line HP-BH

The HP-BH’s place is for people who generally use small amounts of paint but occasionally need more.  Makeup artists and fingernail artists generally prefer the HP-BH over HP-CH.  Fine artists also like the fact that they can finer details a little bit easier with the BH instead of the CH.

Features and Review

  1. The MAC Valve is awesome
  2. Small Cup – [1/16 oz  1.8 mL]  The smaller cup is nice because you can still fit quite a bit of paint into the cup.  Enough to spray a background or cover a face with foundation.  But it’s not so big that it’ll start to interfere with operation.  The small cup is nice and sleek, though not quite as sleek and space saving as the HP-AH
  3. Cut-away, pre-set handle

Common Problems
  • No Place to Set it Down
  • Tip Dry
  • Bent Needles
  • Clogs
  • Breaking the Nozzle Threads Off Inside the Airbrush
  • Getting Careless – Doesn’t sound like a problem right?  But the HP-BH can hold enough paint to ruin your work if you get a little wild and crazy while you spray (again like me).  So keep it mellow!
