Im really new to airbrushing but have been producing woodturned objects for a while.
Can I choose to use alcohol based paints? Whats the advantage and what manufacturer is recommended?
(Ive tried acrylic with pretty high satisfaction). Wher can these be bought online?
Thanks!!
 
Hmm seems I just researched this for my neighbor .
had a nice read here: http://airbrushdoc.com/beginners/preparing-surfaces-for-airbrush-part-2/?ModPagespeed=noscript

With out fist sealing the wood grain any paint will have the effect of the old white wash unless that is the look you are going for.
While I have used candy colors to put on graphics on wood then used 2 k clear to seal it all in.

I think alcohol based paint would absorb into the wood grain and bleed the colors .
But Being I have not tried alcohol based paints on wood grain I am not sure of that with out testing it on different types of wood.

But now how about an nice introduction ? you can find that section here http://www.airbrushforum.org/introductions/
it will help us let you know venders in your area and may help you find others who have more knowledge on straight wood painting then I do.
 
Thanks Mr.M. I added an intro, read the surface prep (not much new for me there) and sent a quick question to the BrushDoc.
Your concern for bleeding may be an issue indeed. Good thought. Maybe better to perform over a clear sealer.
Anyone here use the alcohol based paints and can recommend a vendor to achieve the candy effect? Again, looking to buy online being outside the US.
 
I have used AutoAir Candy on wood , But I have never messed with alcohol based paints on wood .
But I am interested in what you do find out .
