Re: Airbrush Poll

I'm starting with portraits hoping to pay some bills, too. I want to do all kinds of fine art mostly. But I'm focusing on portraits now. It's fun seeing one come together. Lots of work getting there though.

Post a pic of one of your tees if you get a chance.

Re: Airbrush Poll

Welcome to the WC. You should post some of your work when you get a chance.

I don't thing grinding down the nozzle is a good idea. There is a reason it is the length that it is.

Re: Airbrush Poll

I have (1) Theyer & Chandler and (2) Paasches- (1) VL & (1) AB Turbo. That's not counting the 3 used... (1) VL & (2) AB Turbos. I think I need to have a yard sale or just clean house.

Re: Airbrush Poll

Good Morning, here on the WC.
I was wondering if Penny could find us a cut-away drawing of one of those Paasche AB Turbo airbrushes for us. It seems some folks have not seen the inerts of a Turbo, so to speak. Ya' know, it does look very Dorky to say the least. And the noise sounds like a dentist drill on teeth cleaning day, but it still gets the job done.
Penny, maybe you can find one of those "Most Unwanted Posters" for us. It may look funny, but it's great for airbrushing.... Knats. I think I should get out more often.
Later, Dave.

Talking Re: Airbrush Poll

I Use the Holbein Y-1 for fine details. Does anyone used a Holbein? It is very popular in Japan. I know what the great artists from Wetcanvas are using but
I have no many choices here . I used to work with an airbrush from a local
manufacturer called Gatti , but when I found the Holbein , I thought :Wow! I
never had an aibrush before !

Re: Airbrush Poll

I use an Iwata. It'd be nice to try all airbrushes but I don't see that day coming yet! I think you should be able to try them all then pick the one you want. But no store around here carries any high-dollar ones.

Depends on what kind of steel the spring is made of. If it's stainless and the nickle content is high enough, a magnet may not pick it up.

Joe, a magnet will not pick up brass, only ferrous metals (those made out of iron).

Re: Airbrush Poll

Try getting a "rare earth" Neodymium magnet. But be careful. A really strong one will probably pull the nails out of your hardwood flooring.

Yeah, I made the mistake of putting one of those in my jeans pocket and stepping under the 8 inch sprinkler pipe that runs through my shop. It took me three hours to get out of my jeans without falling and breaking my neck! You would think I would have gotten the hint when moments before a claw hammer just missed nailing me in the family jewels.

Re: Airbrush Poll

1 automotive spray gun and 1 automotive touch up gun. i use my trusty home built silent compressor to power it all...
