Got a new airbrush and am looking for tutorials
show user profile  npcph
So i got a Paasche airbrush kit for Christmas and am looking for some tutorials on how to use it. I had my appendix removed a few days ago and will be pretty much taking it easy for the next few weeks so figured it was a good time to learn. I got a single action siphon feed H series airbrush and some basic airbrush paint colors. Just looking for videos or websites that will explain setup, use and cleaning of the unit. It didn't really come with anything at all to explain anything so want to make sure i have it set up and cleaned properly. I can Google it, but you get a lot of shit with Google and thought someone here might have some good resources that they use.

Thanks for suggestions.

I use to do a fair bit of airbrush (back in the day). My advice is just play with it. practice drawing lines of different thicknesses and applying smooth flat areas.

Always keep it clean. Add a suitable cleaner (can't actually remember what I used to use) and spray it through thorougly after use, several times. When you dismantle it to clean look after the needle. They are really easy to damage.

practice your scapel work, masking is as important as the airbrush and really easy to mess up hours of work with one slip of a scapel.

A good compressor with a nice smooth flow too. Cafeful where you work, easy to leave a film of ink over the place without realising.

Have fun. Might even dig mine out.
