Choosing the correct needle is essential to ensure you get the best results if you're planning on using an airbrush to paint your toys. The needle size will affect the flow of paint and the level of detail you can achieve.

I recommend using a larger needle size, such as 0.5mm or 0.7mm, for general spraying. These sizes will allow for a smooth flow of paint and will make it easier to cover larger areas. Some airbrush needles are labeled as Fine(F), Medium(M), or Heavy(H). For general spraying, I recommend using a Heavy(H) needle.

While you can use smaller needle sizes for more detailed work, you may need expensive airbrush paints to prevent clogging. I have never needed to use any smaller needle sizes when painting toys, but you may want to experiment with them to see what works best for you.

It's also worth noting that the type of airbrush you use will play a role in determining the best needle size. I prefer the Badger 155 Anthem airbrush, but many other options are available on the market. Experimenting with different airbrushes and needle sizes will help you find the best fit for your particular needs.

I recommend using a larger needle size, such as 0.5mm or 0.7mm, when painting toys with an airbrush. Larger needles allow for a smooth paint flow when spraying craft paints and make it easier to cover larger areas. However, smaller needle sizes may be necessary for more detailed work, and you may need to use expensive airbrush paints to achieve a smooth finish. Experimenting with different sizes and types will help you find the best fit for your needs.
