I would LOVE a copy of the airbrushing document if possible. I just bought my first airbrush for myself as an early Christmas present and the main purpose I had for it was makeup. So far, I've just played a bit with it on touching up tombstones to get the hang of it. Thanks!!!

all who have asked have been sent! There is definitely a knowledge gap in airbrushing, Im not great at it to be honest,Im decent I know guys who blow me away. But I have taken the leap and beaten down the learning curve and the fear of the equipment and I want to drag people with me because airbrush make up has advantages over conventional make up.
Its easier than it seems, most folks get an airbrush and use it till it clogs and then set it down for about a year, then pick it back up. There is a knowledge barrier that is tough but worth climbing over!

The Graftobian airbrush kits seemed to be a big hit at the show last year. I thing the whole kit sold for around 400 bucks. Nice set, but you got to know what your doing to benefit from all the advantages it allows.

Can I get that document also please? While we are on the airbrush subject, does anyone recommend a certain brand or model of airbrush machine? Thanks.

I have not done any airbrush makeup yet. But have looked into it and the airbrushes.
And if your gona get into airbrushing do spend a lil and get a decent airbrush.
Cheap ones aren't worth it and you dont have to buy the most expenseve one out the to do a really good job. I've been looking at getting a paasche or an iwata
they both seem like nice airbrushes. But what ever you get just make sure you take care of it.

Hey Allen or someone I would like the link to please.

If you havent done any airbrush make up yet then why are you giving advice on airbrushes? Im confused. Buy cheap- things at haunts get abused and destroyed no point in losing a $100 or more airbrush. One of my favorites to use from them is a $10 model from Harbor freight-it never clogs-unlike my pasche and Iawatta!
Read the doc first- I recommend Harbor freight. About 5 area haunts use them and are very happy with them, and they are $150 for six of them. best deal ever.

Sorry everyone,

I didn't mean to make my self sound dumb about not doing any airbrush makeup
yet. And I am not trying to tell anyone how to do aribrush makeup.
I didn't say that I have not done any airbrushing just that I haven't done any airbrush makeup.
I used to do airbrushing on model cars back in my teens over 20 years ago with a cheap air brush and I did not like the way it worked, but like I said that was over 20 years ago.
And I didn't know that there is a clog prob with the pasche or iwata. Thanks for the heads up Allen. I will check out the ones from Harbor Freight.

I put in an order to harbor freight and my air brush and hose is now on back order....THAT SUX. Allen have you ever had to wait on things and how long did it take to come. I was so ready to start. now my hart is broken
