    There are many artists in Italy who airbrush on Zippo's small surface. Some create incredible work. They use a mix of tiny masks and freehand that often results in stunning work that many artists can not even make on much larger surfaces. Most of them use Paasche VJR (like Alberto) or V#1 airbrushes. Take a peek at this guy's magnificent work, Luca Roccaforte who has a page on Facebook:
