    hey guys and girls, im relatively new to air brushing, I have an iwata sprint jet compressor, iwata eclipse hp cs and an iwata revolution. As I said I am relatively new to this so this forum is awesome for me and as soon as I have anything to contribute I will. I would also like to thank everyone on this site that has added so much valuable info.

    Hi cheeks, from a fellow Brit, welcome aboard. We're all proper nosy, so what kind of ABing are you in to, or hoping to get in to, what paints do you use? :)

    Anything and everything AB related, is worth contributing, so don't be shy. There is always other people at a similar stage, who will be going through the same excitement/frustrations etc, whether its dots, or full on artworks. Plus we've all been there and you could get constructive advice that literally saves weeks of trial and error. Or, if all is good, a pat on the back and confirmation you're on the right trick is always reassuring. No trolls here, so feel free to share the good and the bad (I've got the ugly covered lol).

    Such a warm welcome thank you all
    hi mark, right on the edge of bodmin moor in a little village called St Breward, it's right out in the sticks lol what part of Devon is your neighbors from?
    Hi bean pole, it's good to know there are fellow airbrush airbrush artists in the southwest
    Hi squish thanks for the welcome and reassurance. Currently I'm using auto air and createx paint and really just experimenting with thinning to air pressure ratio's and I must admit I was a little daunted before I started but I find the paints are so easy to work with ( it's just a shame the seem to be quite hard to get hold of for me in Cornwall other than eBay), but as soon as start actually spraying something other than squiggly lines I will post it up.

    Yeah, I have to get mine online too. The most "local" suppliers to me are in Poole 50 miles or so away, but they don't stock it what I use. Great paints though, I prefer the Wicked line as it's great for any surface.

    Very nice - didn't get into that part of Cornwall. Rode around the area on a cycle tour that was good and lived in Plymouth for a little over a year. No it is you who has the Devonian neighbor, @The dude

    Welcome to the forum Cheeks. Well, you've got some nice brushes to start off with. There's nothing stopping you now. Post up some of your practice pieces. We want to see your progress. :)
