Every airbrush with a long, pointy needle gets tip-dry. It’s kind’ve a fact of life. The G6 lets you use the Unapproved Tip Dry Removal Method very, very easily.
Unfortunately, every airbrush or spray gun still clogs. The blunt needle eliminates a good deal of that clogging, but the nozzle size is still small. If you run into problems run through the cleaning guides.
This is actually more of a problem with the Eclipse G6 than most other airbrushes. This is because the needle’s tip is completely exposed. The horns on the air cap provide some protection, but not much. So you do need to be careful.
This is the opposite of the bent needle. Hurting yourself or someone you’re spraying because of the exposed needle tip.
I’d suggest that you don’t try and spray details on a person using the HP-G6, simply because scratching someone (especially a client) is a big no no. Better to have a little airbrush for details than risk the scratches.
