clean it everytime you use it. take it apart and lube it as well.
and get some airbrush cleaner.

What should I use to lube the airbrush?
vasoline or sum lube that holds up and doesnt run down inside your gunbut only in the portion of the gun that controls your forward/backward needle movment.DO NOT add lube anywhere from the ink cap to the tip of the needle.u only want lube where the mechanics of the gun are....keep the needle,fluid nozzle and air nozzle clean and dry!water can b used to clean your gun out if your spraying water based products.if your using like urethane or solvent based paint u will want to use a thinner or reducer to clean it out.if your spraying a latex like product water will help but i always end up tearin my gun apart and cleaning it with a extra needle and small brushes.
