  • 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!!

        The "shine" you get in Tennessee has been watered down to 35 to 60 proof. Far reach to White Lightning....

        Any variations from the pattern toward the scrap side do not count as mistakes. AND, other cuts off the pattern are artistic interpretations! Seriously, once you remove the pattern, only you know where it was not on the lines (unless you're doing lettering).
        Second, take a couple of sets of needle...

        Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

        What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

        I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....
