I got into airbrushing when I decided I could make my own fishing lures. Have been airbrushing for about a year and a half. I really enjoyed spraying and have been focusing on getting better as an artist and painting more detailed lures. I do own 2 Iwata Eclipse HP-CS brushes. I already had my spray area plumbed to my main compressor so I am using it which is over kill (60 gallon 2 stage ). It's regulated at the compressor with a water trap along with another regulator/water trap at my work area so it works fine for me. I am in the midwest - Kansas City area.
