Any airbrush will work. There are some things that you will have to do though. You need a water separater, and a filter. Don't skimp on these. Actually it would probably be cheaper to buy a small compressor from harbor frieght.

I bought an airbrush to hook to my compressor. What are the water separator and filter for? I have only played with mine, without those.

A compressor with a tank will hold condensation. When put through a line this water/oil mixture will come through also. The water separator, and filter will get rid of this. If you don't have these items they will spray on to whatever your spraying.

i finally got an e-mail from tcp global (i think that was the name). They said that all i need is an airbrush and colors, i already have the hose as well. I also live in a very dry climate so i think i'm fine without the water filter. Thanks everyone.
