Yes yes! I missed this one. I googled what an airbrush looks like and wow, is it nothing like I imagined.... :lol: I'm also now wondering how small people can airbrush....*

 

*bahaha. Not how small people can airbrush. But like.... some examples of how tiny some details can be done...

I'll have to get in on one or pick your mind after the new home is built and I can save a bit up for it. I plan on getting one (probably a Grex).

No problem!

 

Do you plan on an air compressor for your shop?

if so, you might want to consider running a line to the hobby room near where you will be painting... will save you on an air compressor down the road....

I am undecided on the air compressor for the shop, trying to decide actually if I want to get one for in there and then do all my air-brushing in the wood shop rather than the hobby room. I don't ever plan on doing much more than priming and base coating with the airbrush, but I want to be able to lay down very nice looking primer and paint so that I can pick out the details with my regular brushes.

Remember when all you wanted to do was to slap some paint basecoat on minis and play D&D with them?  :devil:

I have no doubt you will soon find a lot of things to do, and master, with the airbrush. Just get started with it. And an air compressor is great for a woodshop, even if it's only to blast scraps off the table.

Yes, It was last night....

 

I have no clue how to record one of these things, and as it went for 2 hours, it might be a tad long!

 

Will likely do another if enough people express interest, and will likely do more work on the mini I started.

OKAY...

It seems that there was enough interest for me to continue with this, so I will do some cleanup Paint work on the mini this Friday,  1July19, at 2100 hrs EST.

 

Will cover some masking tips that I started last time and continue painting. I will try to have all my paints pre mixed to save time on that part....

 

Not sure what other colors to work with yet, but....

 

I will use the link found in the first post in this thread.

It was pretty useful just to see it in action and hear the running commentary. I was mostly watching the olympic trials with my fiancee, who thought I was even weirder than normal for having an earbud in listening to you while also watching and talking about the trials.

 

That's also why I forgot to use my Cash login :)

Also, it was nice when Willen could step in while you were cleaning between sprays and have some info. You guys made a good team!

 

I think cleaning seems like the biggest barrier to getting into this. I've done a little primer and some zenithal white over black primer, but just when you get in a groove you get taken back out by cleaning the brush.

Can you record it possibly? I don't think I'll be making that one

Don't know how to record it.....

No digital camcorder, not sure if hangouts can do it.....

Someone (Aryanun?) mentioned something that I wrote down, and then tossed the paper....

      As my first airbrush attempt on the Roman centurio was halted by the fact that the figure is so small, I decided to use a different figure, which would be ... bigger.
       
      So in Japan I got me a number of garage kits. One of them was a figure of a nun or mage (I don't know the figure, so I have no idea) and as it was some kind of a miscast or so, I got it for the cheap price of around 6 Euro.
       
      She's big enough to do some airbrush work. And as I want to train airbrushing, I don't want to ruin my first attempt by choosing wrong colours or too difficult painting concepts.
       
      Therefore: YOU CAN CHOOSE THE COLOURS!
       

       
      NO! I really mean it! Gimme some colours, people.
       
      Oh, yeah - That's the figure:

      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.
