I have had this machine for ~2 years now. In my defense, I was in school until last May, so time to work on it was nil. Then, I got as far as I reasonably could with a toothpick (like I read somewhere on this forum) and had to go with airbrushing for really thin lines. Now I'm finishing the thin areas and some of the larger areas that I hadn't done.
There is comfort in knowing that each time I go out to do a spray - is it a layer, a coat, a what? It's been the same color for 5 sprays and counting because it's a different area each time - that I will be that much closer the next time I take the tape off. It's still really hard some times.
At least I have played the machine and know that it's pretty fun. The guy I bought it from lives about 3 miles from my house and he sold it because he was renovating and needed the room. I bet he's done with the reno now, and I'm not nearly there.
Once the blue wall with the white mortar is done I will feel much better. I've been dreading that area since I first decided to paint. It's not hard at all, just so many lines that you have to break down into seperate sprays when you are doing this with tape.
I still have no idea how I'm going to do the million little 'M' shapes that the people have in their clothes.
