Hello,

Did you make your own containment areas? did you buy a big box or something??

How do you keep the color from getting everywhere?

Thanks,

Nikki

I just use a big cardboard box.

I use the box also but it never fails that I'll wind up with rainbow nostrils everytime!

OK....I haven't tried my airbrush yet, but after reading this , was wondering if wearing a disposable face mask (the type one uses for painting) would help?

There was a thread on here a few weeks ago about this but I can't find it. I kept a pic of a box a womans husband made her, with instructions, so here it is.

A mask certainly can't hurt! It is highly suggested.

I wear a mask and still have "rainbow nostrils", but to a lesser degree!

DH and I built me a large spraying box and set up a dedicated airbrushing station. I will attach a picture so you can see it. We built my box using Earlene Moore's general idea. As you can see in the picture we built my box considerably taller and wider and did not put an acrylic top on it. It measures 36" high x 24 deep x 24 wide. Between the height of my box and the exhaust fan I have been shocked at how little spray goes anywhere but into the fan. I love it! icon_smile.gif
I did just recently start airbrushing so haven't sprayed a large amount with it, but, I have sprayed enough to know the box and exhaust fan works great, and, little spray has escaped so far. icon_smile.gif
