Just in case anybody here hasnt figured it out yet caligraphy ink is great as a practice paint - cleans up easy from airbrush, no thinning required, and very very cheap.

works with around 30 - 40 PSI

If only I saw this video before I cloged my airbrush...

ROFLMAO!! it's like you know exactly wtf i want to learn and put the video right on my screen... i've looked at most of your videos 2 or 3 times and thought to myself... alright... time to get an airbrush. then i realised sh!t... i dunno how to take care of it if i do get one. and after 2 hours on the web i click a link and it brings me full circle right back here... gg. thanks again :)

Any chance you could do a 4 leaf clover intstuctional for me. I have the basics and want to put a shamrock on each side of my bike's gas tank. That's a mock up of what I'm trying to accomplish. Thanks

How much does a decent starter airbrush cost?

Not nearly as much as you would think. Around 40$.

Airbrush-Depot has the best value airbrushes. They are called the master series.

Check them out.

what airbrush are you runn'n?, personally I running a vega 2000 by badger, also I have a crescendo for shirts (not metal) and 2 harbor freight backups.

I got a good airbrush for $12 and a compressor for $50 at harbor freight.

First off I have to say I just recently saw your videos and for someone like me who is just starting they are awesome! Like I said I'm just starting and got what I think was a great deal on a BADGER 360 ($75.)but I'm wondering if it will be good for me to learn with and if I'll be able to eventually accomplish those awesome Real Blue Flames in your video with it? Thanks for all your help!

i am new to airbrushing. my tool leaks just a tiny bit out of the body. is there anything i can do to fix it? your vids are great. i mostly use the tool for painting stencils. Also, any vital tips i need to know about?
