be prepared for a lot of stuffing around for a pretty average outcome..i tried it once a few years ago but all that masking and cleaning of nibs and whatnot had me pulling teeth...not a fan of the airbrush just quietly..

Airbrushing is difficult but if you can burn with a can then you already have a step up on alot of people. It is different ,but how you lay your colours is pretty much the same. Most of the work I have done is freehand work, I rarely use stencils cuz they are a pain in the ass. Be patient, dont expect that the first time you paint you will do something wicked, Try and learn the brush on scrap paper, understand how the flow works,how thin your paint is. I use a pache airbrush model Vl it seems to serve its purpose.About $150 Canadian is what I paid came with a couple mixing jars and connecting hose. At first I used a shitty ass Canadian tire compressor and it did suck. It was loud as sin,and it didn't have a proper regulator. Spend your money on a good compressor ,I paid almost $800 but Its has already paid for itself in the 1st year I used it. There is alot of troubleshooting when airbrushing so many things to take into consideration, paint to thin or thick, Not enough pressure,Maybe too much.I run at about 40-80 Pounds. Peep some of my work in the benching Canvas styles pt2 :D :D ;)

iv found that if your on a budget, buying the wood, and canvans, and streching the shit yourself is much cheper than buying a ready to go canvas, you can also make the size what ever the hell you want that way too. it can be a pain in the as though, making the frame, and all, dont forget to gesso the canvass either, most ready to go canvasses come pre gessoed(sp?) i belive
