i know this has been asked before but i can't find any airbrush posts in the search!
My husband wants to get my an airbrush (probably because he feels guilty for taking me camping in freezing weahter last weekend)...I don't want to loose the momentum researching...i gotta tell him fast!
what airbrush should i tell him to get me?? what's the best as far as not clogging, even spray, etc???

I have 2 and my favorite by far is the GREX. (model TS3) I LOVE that thing!

I bought mine at ICES, I know Dick BLick sells some of the GREX models, but I don't know if they carry the one I have.

I love the Americolor airbrush colors. (they have a sheen set that I really like!) I am sure any of the airbrush colors will work fine though.

It is important to clean your brush each time you use it - with the sheen colors I even clean it every 3 fills to make sure it doesn't clog while I am using it.
