Paper points - for cleaning airbrushes

Postby Mark » Sun Sep 23, 2018 4:54 pm

Hi just become aware of these little gems. Paper points, which are designed for dental work (don't ask me how or what - it doesn't look like they can inflict much pain!) They are perfect for cleaning the nozzle of the airbrush. Just dip one in airbrush cleaner, carefully poke it down where the nozzle and give it a twist.

They are cheap from Chinese Ebay sellers too. Just search for paper points.

They are needle shaped cones of absorbent paper.
