Learning a new medium

So I was hooked on airbrushing after being given the chance to create some artwork on my next door neighbour’s trike.

The question was “was I doing it right?”

So off to see what I could find on the internet about airbrushing technique.

Airbrushtutor.comMy first port of call was Airbrushtutor.com. ┬áMitch is as nutty as a fruit cake, but in the nicest possible way ­čÖé ┬áHe has some great downloadable files on the site to help beginners practice getting used to the control of an airbrush.

I quickly┬árealised that my starter kit had done its job and I ought to move up to the next level of quality, so…

Infinity CR+

I moved up to a H & S Infinity CR+.  The difference was amazing, everything worked for a start and my artwork immediately improved.

Meanwhile back at the trike, Barry (neighbour) asked me to do the artwork on the real fuel tank at the back of the trike.

For all of the work including this next part I have been using Createx water based auto paint.

Take a look at the next gallery to see how the real fuel tank turned out.

Hope you enjoyed that.

See you soon with the output from My Marissa Oosterlee workshop.
