Airbrushing How-To: A Multi-Part Series
One of the most useful tools in a modeler's arena is the airbrush. The quality of results obtained from using an airbrush are amazing, as, in essence, the tool is mimicking that of the full size subject. While the results are clearly desired, learning and mastering this tool can be challenging. The complexity and wide range of products available presents novices with information overload. For those who already know how to airbrush, there is always something new to learn, just as with any tool. This new series at Internet Modeler will hopefully provide new information for all modelers, whether you are looking at getting your first airbrush or have been using one for decades.
This introduction will also serve as a master index for the series. The first few articles will cover the specifics of the airbrush system, while the rest will tackle specific airbrushing situations. These will move from simple to complex and will demonstrate one specific method of airbrush usage. As there are many variables in airbrushing, we will also have several guest spots, documenting their specific style of airbrushing. Some of these will be aimed at genre-specific airbrushing (armor, for example), while others will demonstrate how to achieve similar results with completely different equipment.
It is our goal to update this series weekly, and we welcome any questions and/or comments, which we will also publish regularly. The end result will be a comprehensive airbrushing how-to, one which hopefully everyone can learn something from.
