Spray: eco-way to spray aerosol paint

Recommended Posts

For a fraction of the price ($20-30ish?) you can buy a cheap airbrush and pump sprayer to use as a compressor from a hardware store. You'd get better results on miniatures. That's how Plasmo started out airbrushing.

Looks like it made a mess ?


From what's shown in the video, the spraying wasn't too messy. 


This seems interesting, but I already have an airbrush so this isn't something I really need to buy. More environmentally friendly products are always welcome though.

Saw this too.  I'm tempted, but mainly for things other than mini painting.  Probably puts too much paint down to be practical for priming but if it works just like a rattle can it might be a good option for people who cling to that kind of priming and refuse to get more into airbrushing.  Hopefully cleanup is pretty easy on it.......

The price isn't terrible, it's less expensive than a paint gun setup, and since it works with a bicycle pump you wouldn't need a large garage compressor.  I probably wouldn't try to use  it to paint a car, but for spraying shellac on a chair it seems like it might be useful.

My problem with product design is first, whether or not it will work in production, and, second, what other competing products will be around by the time the product comes out -- including after delays.


I poked around the internet, and, at best, found a manual pump for soda bottle paint sprayers. For compressed air, search on "soda bottle paint sprayer". Neither are as good as what this product is or promises.


However, if you're going to be "eco-friendly", why are you painting in the first place? Just because you're an "artist" doesn't excuse you from the environmental cost of creating the paint, nor cleanup afterwards. This project looks like one of those "feelgood" gestures where you're not really making sacrifices.

Seems neat, but at those prices I could get a nice airbrush to work with the setup I already have...  But I'm not someone who's attached to rattle cans, and have always found them to not be the most... Reliable with laying paint down.


...Says the fox who if he had a back yard would use Montana Gold spray cans to quick coat his MDF terrain >.>;;;  (there's a reason I'm swapping my airbrush up to a 0.5mm needle as soon as I can...)

      Loke BattleMats is running a campaign for their third "Set of 2 spiral-bound Battle Map Books for RPG", after Dungeons and Town and Taverns. 
      Loke has finished shipping their previous KS, and has fulfilled all six of their previous KS. The Wilderness Battle Map Books follow the same format as their previous two. 
      Loke BattleMats will also have digital maps for VTT at a low price, including freebies.
      Previous SG's included free vinyl cling sets (reusable stickers) and Little Book (supplementary maps).
      I have a review of their Town and Taverns Battle Map Books on RPG.net, as well as some other of their maps, Dungeon Little Book, and vinyl clings.

      Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.
