Hi depends on the paint and subject your painting I usually start at 15psi then work up or down from this starting point its mostly a matter of choice when you see the results hope this helps  Bill..

As Bill said in and around 15/20 psi depending on the paint and what your painting . I was airbrushing yacht varnish this evening and found with the viscosity it sprayed better around 30 psi but I moved further away from the job . But that's only how I work it . Not saying that's how a professional would do it ! Lol
