    Tops, try a different airbrush? It took a little adjusting to get mine to lay material down nicely, I tested on some cardboard first to get a feel for it.

    I just eyeballed my acetone/spot putty mixture, not sure where it ended up at in ratio.
    I did note that too much air was letting the mix dry before hitting the pattern - perhaps this is why you're getting dust that wipes off yours?

    My HF airbrush states to run at 30psi.

    Once adjusted, if I hit one area too hard, it would pool up enough to begin to run ever so slightly. That seemed to be the sweet spot for application.
