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:

      I'm taking the leap and about to buy my first airbrush for mini painting and was hoping I could get some advice on what to buy. The Airbrushing: compendium has been very helpful and I've spent hours, days, what feels like years researching and I want to pull the trigger... I live in Canada and after ringing around some hobbyshops etc it seems amazon is the best bang for my buck. I have paint and access to a Campbell Hausfeld 2 Gallon Air Compressor (I will purchase another compressor in a few months once I have some more disposable income). My main concerns are does this compressor work with the airbrush listed below, do I need anything else? Heres what I've got in mind:   NEO CN GRAVITY-FEED DUAL-ACTION AIRBRUSH $97.20 CAD Paasche 10-foot Nylon Braided Hose $18 CAD Airbrush Cleaner 4 Kit, Washing Tools - Glass Cleaning Pot etc $22 CAD Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner 85ml $7 CAD   any advice would be appreciated

      These are from the Ghosts of Midlam Manor Kickstarter.  I love these sculpts and I just got an airbrush, so I wanted to try sort of a blue zenithal ghost effect.  They are more blue than the camera shows, I'm still getting used to the photo booth and lighting.  (Plus I should probably use the real camera instead of my phone.)
       
      Overall I'm happy!

      As with the other ghosts, I was playing around with quickly airbrushing a ghost effect.  I liked the green tone of these Bones 4 minis, but I'm not a big fan of translucent figures.  I wanted to paint over them, but keep the ghost vibe.  These are much greener in person.  I like them, but I think the blue ghosts in the other thread turned out a tad better.  These ended up a hair too bright for what I was going for, but it's all in the name of science! I might glaze them down a bit later.

      I've had this kit for quite a while now, to build for a friend who's a big Judge Dredd fan.  Due to circumstances I can't go into, he asked me if I could this one, along with Judge Anderson and possibly Judge Death put together and painted for him.  Second vinyl figure I've worked on, and I thought some of you might find it interesting.  First picture shows the components cut out and cleaned up.  The second is the major subassemblies.


      One of the tricks with this kind of kit is to fill the lower portions with plaster to add rigidity, weight and strength to the piece.  Without it, you run the risk of the vinyl buckling if it gets too hot after you've got the figure assembled.  Yeah, DON'T leave these kits out in direct sunlight!  
       

       
      and here he is with all the primary assembly complete and ready for paint:

      Next up on my table are the miniatures from Cerebria: The Inside World, a boardgame from Mindclash Games in which the forces of Bliss and Gloom vie for control of an evolving personality.
       
      I'm going to try to do these two at a time (one from each team); the first two will be Harmony and Malice.

      Session 1 - prime + zenithal highlight
       
      Harmony

       
      Malice

       
      Session 2
       
      Harmony
      With the airbrush, I did base+shading of the wings and base of the body. Colors used:
      - Twilight Blue
      - Snow Shadow
      - Surf Aqua
      - Violet Light
      - Sunset Purple
      - Maggot White

       
      Malice
      For malice, I'm starting with the NMM-bronze-ish body. I base coated with Khaki Shadow, then used Ghoul Skin and Moldy Skin for initial highlighting. Shadows are Woodstain Brown and NMM Gold Shadow (which I am not that fond of for Gold, but seems to work well here). Any other color recommendations? I finished up the session with basing the skirt in Redstone.
