I had to use a beading needle in the nozzle end to clean it, and it was fine after that. Cleaning of any airbrush is really vital. I have to disassemble my own real airbrush to clean it as the pigments of all paints I have used wind up stuck on the needle and so clogging the tip.

Hmm, I will have to try cleaning mine more thoroughly as a last-ditch attempt.

My latest go with the airbrush while repainting my lekku was slightly more successful, luckily. (There are adjustable parts that I didn't realize were adjustable!) Probably taking the whole rig to D*C.

If you only need a small area, I have found that the Preval sprayers work pretty good. I get them at Ace Hardware for around 7 bucks.

If you are using Ben Nye or Mehron, you will need to thin it way down with Final Seal.

I've used it for my zombie make-up and for my Green Lantern:

I am going to break down and get a proper airbrush, but this does work pretty good in a pinch.

Can't wait to try the Preval kit...I'm always paranoid about my airbrush not working the morning of a Con. This would make an awesome back-up!
