How to read an airbrush pattern

Before spraying your project, practice on cardboard to adjust the finish viscosity and airbrush settings. If you're using an air compressor, set the pressure reaching the nozzle to 25-30 pounds per square inch (psi). Spray a short burst of finish, and then adjust the fluid flow using your results against the examples shown in the chart right. Airbrushes produce a conical spray pattern that can be narrowed by holding the airbrush closer to your work and reducing the fluid flow.

Sometimes I agree with wb6ufx because there are times it will work and then are times it will not! What gives? And sometimes I can print a whole 4 page article by simply saying "Print" and often I will only get the first page; and thereby must do multiple "Print"s to get a whole article. Does your programmer have any ideas about what is going on?
