Default Using spray guns for liquid mask

Can anyone recommend a decent spray gun for spraying liquid mask on? I was wondering if the Hobbynox one is any good for £26, but it looks similar to eBay ones that are half the price.

Many thanks,
Jay.

I use the cheap touch up guns.

Thanks for your reply, that looks spot on. Do you dilute your liquid mask? I use Bitty Design mask, which seems quite thick.

I use RCS liquid mask, but yes I do dilute it with a little water just to get it to flow better. 😎

I bought the gun on the link you sent, what a great item. So much easier. The Bitty liquid also needs thinning slightly and it was spot on. Two coats seems to be fine. Thanks again for the advice.

No problem, use a hair dryer between coats to speed up drying time 😉
