My hubby handed me $100 and told me to buy an airbrush....I told them I have been seeing some pretty cheap ones on Ebay!!

I just hope it gets here soon!! I can't wait to play!!

I'll test it out and let you guys know how good/bad it works!! I figured for 85/86 dollars with shipping and everything it can't hurt to try this thing out!

I matched all the details PSI/HP and all that jazz...it seems to have more power than the Kopycake one that sells for 160- 250 dollars!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I would also like to know if the one you are getting is a good one. I didn't realize you could get them for so cheap! Now I want one!

Yay for you! Let me know how it works.

Well, you did your research so it should be the bomb!
But do let us know. I want one, too, but am afraid to make the jump.

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi, I just wanted to share my airbrush experience... I got one a couple of years ago for Christmas. It's instructions weren't very clear. It isn't the same model, but just in case your acts the same way...
When I first tried it it kept spitting paint in blobs and it looked awful! I just thought "Well, that's what you get when you only pay $100 for an airbrush". The second time I used it, again I couldn't figure out how to get it to not spit globs. Then, the third time I figured out that if you just push the button down half way or less and hold it about 10 -12 inches away, it won't do it. You also may need to do more than one coat, letting it dry a bit in between, if you want a nice dark color (look at my spiderman). If you don't give it time to dry, it will run.

You may not have any of these problems, but they made me want to throw mine out the window. And now that I figured it out, I love it! Hope you love yours!

I want to buy an airbrush too, but don't know a lot about them so would love to hear about yours when you have had a chance to use it.

Okay...got it today...tried out some red on a piece of paper...works good!!

I could write my name with it, and it looked neat. I give a thumbs up to anyone wanting to buy it...it doesn't have a place to adjust air pressure on the compressor...it's the dual action kind that sprays more paint out the further you pull the trigger back...I LOVE IT!!

And, here's some cupcakes I made just to practice using my airbrush...let me just say....I could use more practice, but it's really fun to use!! The colors got a lot brighter/darker the next day.
