apparently was doing some research here on CC while I was at work.

He got me an airbrush & compressor for my birthday! I'm so thrilled!

The airbrush is from
The compressor he picked up from Harbor Freight.

Does anyone know of any videos or books for teaching airbrush techniques?

That is sooo sweet! I will definitley be passing this information along to my hubby!

My birthday is in August and I better be getting a new camera to take pictures of my cakes and oh yeah, the kids too! icon_lol.gif

Congratulations on you new toy and having a gret hubby.

Francis Kuyper (THE Cake Lady) has a nice booklet out on care & use of the airbrush especially for use on cakes.
Just start playing around w/it. Get paper towels w/designs on it and practice filling them in. Will help you master controlicon_smile.gif Be sure you clean it (run water thu ) after each and every use. Never leave it dirty; it just takes a moment to run a bit of hot water thru so it doesn't get gummed up.

Congrats on your new airbrush! Check ebay for books and videos. Frances Kuyper has books and tapes out that are wonderful. If you are just starting out my teacher gave us a great way to practice, get a roll of paper towels with a design and practice on them outlining the pictures and filling in. It's a great way to learn pressure control. HTH

That was really nice of him!

I just got an airbrush from Airbrush City too, which replaced my Paasche. I LOVE it. I am practicing in coloring books right now. I took an airbrushing class from Bronwen Weber a couple of weekends ago and it was worth every penny. Perhaps there are instructors in your area who teach airbrushing classes.

Have fun with your new toy! icon_smile.gif
