you say it’s for 1sq inch, but what about the next pin? and the one after
that etc etc
if you can swing it buy an airbrush. double action, top loading is the
nicest stuff, siphon just wastes paint and is more of a pain to clean up.
if you can’t afford one right now, find a project pin, fix’n’flip it and
put the profit towards the airbrush :)
get something like an Iwata HP-C, will last you for ever.
