  • Paasche Airbrush

    I just picked up an airbrush kit off of craigslist. We'll see how it goes. I'm totally new to the whole airbrush thing. I am hoping that it will make my painting life happier, but we'll see.

    I am planning on using acrylic craft pain, americana brand on my toys and puzzles. I know I need to thin the paint down to a milk consistency and watch the psi output on my compressor, but thats about it.

    Any pointers and advice are welcomed!

      Thanks, I sent her a pm. I was talking to her a little before about airbrushing and I would have to agree that she is the resident airbrushing expert!

      It's always good to learn from your own mistakes, but it sure is nice to learn from other peoples too!!

        I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...

        Skimming through this post, I came across 1 response to Quartz and one to Bill Wilson as PMs from Kelly, a new editorial assistant, regarding our comments. Here is my 2 cents regarding the copying. To understand what we mean, please take the issue with the sword fish on the front and copy that on a...

        I want to say I’ve seen the pattern before but can’t remember where. I’ll have to try searching the SSWC article index to see if it was in the magazine (although previous searches haven’t been too successful for me in the index)....

        It really isn’t that bright when you see them. I want to paint the rose and vine and leaves but he’s skeptical since I always say I hate to paint. I can actually paint just don’t like to that much. I think a dark red at the center of the rose graduating to a lighter shade on the outer edges and...
