So people have been talking about airbrushing again, and since being on the hangout, I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a live tutorial?
I did some research with the help of the First Lady Thing & and the Forum Mascot, and it seems that the noise levels of needed equipment is low enough to not bother my household, or overpower the audio of the hangouts. (I can airbrush inside due to my airbrush station...)
If people were interested, I would try to schedule it for a Friday or Saturday night, around 9pm EST.
I would start with the basics, this is an airbrush, these are the parts of an airbrush.
This is how I mix paint
How I spray the paint
How I control the spray of paint
HOW I CLEAN THE AIRBRUSH

Etc etc etc

I think that people might be less intimidated by airbrushes if they could see something done live, and be able to ask questions. ..

Disclaimer! I am NOT an expert, but would be more than willing to impart my meager knowledge...

Maybe some experts could show us things as well. ..

So chime in if you are interested!

George

Depending on the timing I could join in. Frack, I even filmed a series of "Airbrushing for newbies by a newbie" and never got around to editing it  :blush:

Okay, I am going to shoot for Friday night,  24 June 2016, at 9pm EST to get started. This should allow the most folks across different time zones to join up. (2230 for the Newfies & Willen, 6pm for the West Coast folks....)

 

This is the figure that I decided to use as my example, as he is large enough to show the things that need to be shown, but not so big that he takes over my painting area! (I have also previously done a Type III Demon, starting with an airbrush, and used the airbrush for some more advanced techniques, that I feel he is a good choice. Plus I have him!)

I plan on doing the assembly and prep work prior to starting, so as not to take up the time with mundane tasks....

 

So please come have a look if you are interested!

I'd be up for this...  I would not consider myself a newbie but I'm not much beyond that.  Beside I pretty much learn from every class or demo I have taken.

Dunno why you guys assume I am half an hour off, we respect "real" timezones in Argentina :P

 

I am GMT -3 so 9pm EST is 10pm. Quite a good time, actually, I should be about to be done with dinner by then.

I thought I asked what time it was for you last time I saw you on hangouts....

***Maybe I confused you with Buglips.....***

Should I feel flattered or worried about that?  :blush:

      So today when I started airbrushing, I noticed that after I sprayed a bit the pressure on the tank was dropping, which made it difficult to get an even coverage. I'd start at around 15psi, and it would hold for a couple seconds, then drop steadily until it was down at 5psi. Turning up the pressure did not help, it still dropped psi. I took out the needle and checked and cleaned it and the rest of the ab, then tried just shooting air through, without needle or anything but the nozzle lever. Same result. Seals are airtight at least until I start shooting air through. I have a Paasche TG-3F, bought it with the compressor in a package deal, compressor has a humidity filter on it.
       
      EDIT: Just noticed that while air is going through the airbrush, adjusting the pressure does nothing at all. I can turn it up or down and it stays at 5psi. Unless I reduce the pressure below 5psi, then it goes down. Adjusting the pressure when I release the airbrush changes psi normally.

      Finished Cthulhu on Saturday, I think I'm learning to overcome my fear of highlighting too far, I still didn't go as light as people said I should. Some say you can go practically to white, but I am very hesitant to try that. I think I've made progress though. C&C welcome!
       
      Soft Lighting---

       
       
      Harsh Lighting, to show detail----

       
       
       
      And WIP thread if anyone is interested...

      Got my start on Cthulhu last week. Did a prime in black, then zenithal pre-shade white from above. Purple from below, then green from above. Liking the effect so far, think I'm done with the airbrush, gonna move on to regular painting.

      Hey guys. I'm back after having my wisdom teeth removed :/ nasty surgery had to have some recovery. But I started painting again and I was wondering; am I getting speckling here? It used to be really bad but I diluted down a touch and I think it's better. Could use some help.

      So as a lot of folks around these here electronic parts know, I have barely hobbied since ReaperCon, due to brain weasel infestation...
      So for the past few days, I have tried to ease my way back in by working on 'risers' for my display case...
      These are chunks of blue insulation foam, cut to fit on my table saw (what a mess it makes!)
      Then sprayed Grey with Stynylrez primer through my airbrush.
       
      Overall case:

      Started life as the 'wings' of an entertainment center, and I added the LED lights scavenged from work...
      Left side is still in progress... (Top to bottom)



      A lonely DDS2
      a bare section that I sprayed the foam for tonight (The ex suggested that I put figures with a special value to me in it, old characters and such, likely, exchanges and gifts will end up in there as well, and the first 25mm mini that I ever painted. Rest will be underground critters and whatever else I can cram in there to get them off my bookcases....)
      Frostgrave terrain and warbands...
       
      Right side:



      Top is Demons and devils, Undead and pillars, and some of my medal wining Reapercon stuff
      Middle is some bigger things...
      Bottom is Giants and wilderness type critters....
       
      Thanks for taking a peek!
