hi, i recently purchased a kopykake airmaster. and i love it, except for the fact that when i color my cakes(roses in the most recent case) in red, my whole house has red pain residue.
I was thinking of getting some sort of box. Like do my airbushing inside of a box w/o one of the flaps.I would make a hole in it for a vacuum cleaner to suck out excess paint mist, but cant really see its working all the way. Paper box will be too dark and fish tank box wont work cause i cant cut a hole for a vacuum hose.
I've not had any problems with over spray since I started using one of those 'three-sided' project boards (I found it in the school/art supplies at Walmart). I set it up behind whatever I'm airbrushing and it has helped cut down the residue. How much psi are you using from your compressor?? Maybe you could lower that some too? HTH!
jones5cm, i work with the lowest PSI(i think its 5 or 10), turn my AC/Heater off, so it wont get upstairs.
CWR41, its a great design, but wow, the price is a bit too much. maybe i can build something similar to this myself.... just a lot simplier.
Whenever I use my airbrush, I also wear a cheap facemask (you can get at home depot), which really cuts down on what you inhale. If you've been airbrushing without one, you've undoubtedly blown your nose later and been astonished with how much color you inhaled!
