Hi guys,

Just want to wish you all a happy holiday season! I am due a present from my dearest and was thinking of an airbrush and compressor, but I don't know which make/ model to get and whether it's just a useless messy gadget. All comments, experience, thoughts etc welcomed. Oh, are the colours expensive? How long do they last? Etc

I live in the uk, so where would be a good place to get it and colours (if the consensus is that it is a valuabe tool for a newbie to have)?

many thanks

DH bought me a pricey airbrush and compressor many years ago. It sat in the box for at least 6 years because it was just too complicated. Now it's broken and needs to go in for repair.

I have a Paasche double action airbrush and an Iwata Smart Jet Compressor. $$$$

I wanted the red KopyKake one. Simple. Less than half the $.

I have the red kopykake compressor and the airbrush that came with it only lasted me about 2 years. I purchased a new airbrush off ebay for 16.50 shipping included. It has a much larger cup on it and is also gravity fed. It works fine with the kopykake compressor.
