  • Dolphin

    The dolphin is cut from 3/4" poplar. I then airbrushed the entire dolphin in white to give it a nice base coat and seal the grain, then I went over it again and painted the blue over it and faded it into the white underside

    I just picked up an airbrush off of craigslist for a deal and this is my first attempt, I think it turned out well.

    Any comments are welcomed!

      Very nice...I hear air brushes are fun to use...once you learn how. But in our house I leave the painting to my wife.....she's the pro.

            Excellent... I have an air brush but have yet to master doing much more than putting on one color hehe. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                Thank you for the comments, so far its a lot of fun!!

                I picked up a paasche vl kit..I think it's that series. Dual action internal mix. It came with a couple hoses, tips, and needles all for $40. I had the compressor and the paint already.

                  Very nicely done. I've never used an airbrush. My neighbor has one. I may ask him to show me the process.

                      Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
