I once again need your help! DH ordered an airbrush and compressor for me. (Powercat Gravity feed). The only instructions were where to hook up the hose. Now I am sitting here feeling stupid not knowing what to do. I went on You-Tube to try to find some basic instructions, but no luck. Can anyone help me?! PRETTY PLEASE!! Thank you in advance.

First off, play with it lots!! my husband got me artist paper and I played on that for awhile. Then I played with cutting shapes just to get the idea of patterns. Most people will tell you to use coloring books, but that was always too tough for me! I've attached a link that may help you a bit. At least encourage you to not give up! Practice practice is all I can say.
Good Luck!

I am in the exact same boat as you! I bought the same airbrush off of ebay and I am lost! Hopefully some nice, wonderful, talented, beautiful people here will give us some good tips!!

Make that 3! icon_rolleyes.gif I've played with mine once and I can definitely say I have no clue what I'm doing.

All I asked my husband to do was check into a $5 bottle at Home Depot one day and now I have about 12 airbrushes and one heck of a fantastic compresser with gauges! He was like Tim on Home Improvement! Unfortunately, I haven't played with mine in a very long time. Forgot how he set it up and he is no longer with us. But will get into it again. Just google 'airbrush' and you'll find all sorts of videos and tutorials. I've done only one cake that I posted (honeycomb), and on one I blew off the frosting. You'll get the hang of it. Some people this is second nature to them,'s a challenge!! Attached is a pic of what I meant by playing on paper.
