Could someone please give me the name of a book, DVD, tutorial on how to decorate using an airbrush? Had a toy, now have the real thing! icon_confused.gif

I bought an Iwata Eclipse HP-CS airbrush at a local art supply store and a compressor from a Hobby shop. I'd recommend your compressor have a check valve that will allow you to adjust the air pressure into the brush. Have fun!

You could also buy some dvd's on airbrushing shirts. It's the same techinque. The dvd I have is Badger tshirt & fabric airbrushing. Techniques by Tim Mitchell Vol. 1 (

I have an Americolor Airbrush system. I love it!

Try this site. I got an artist pad of paper and started on that. Everyone says to practice on coloring books but that was too tough for me to start. I just played on plain paper and then began to make stencils. All you can do is practice and try new ways!
Hope this site helps.
