Hows it going guys?

My name is Jacek and I live in Long Island, NY. I first became interested in airbrushing when Richard Markham came to my Automotive class and showed a demonstration I was amazed and wanted to do it. When I got out of high school I started a job that didnt go with that and kinda forgot about it and a few weeks back I got laid off and thought about what would make me happy and I could make money from in the long run, Airbrushing came to mind. I started looking up videos again and paints and techniques, every time I open the computer I type airbrushing ..... I ordered tutorial videos and different technique videos and some stencils and also watched the videos on here and that pushed me more the lion on here is what one day I want to be able to do. My main goal is to air brush automotive, boat, and motorcycle items, and one day open up a shop dedicated just to airbrushing.

I ordered 16oz of Black Wicked paint as well as some reducer.
I also ordered a siphon airbrush gun but will be returning it because i just purchased 2 Airbrush guns Iwata HP-CS and HP-CH for an amazing price. I have some spare time now so I will devote as much as I can to getting all the basics down and learning as much as I can. Any tips are appreciated :)

I will be looking on this forum daily :)!

Hey Jacek, welcome from a fellow Long Islander. Let me know if I can be of any help. Fyi, I just found out about an opportunity to take an airbrush class next month with one of the best artists in the world and its within driving distance from Long Island. PM me if you're interested and I'll give you the details.

Hi Jacek, welcome from the UK.

You will find everything you need to know amongst all the good folk on the forum. As Seamonkey said ... time is your friend and it can be a very frustrating trip but when things turn out right the buzz you feel is unreal.

Hope to see some work soon!

Torben thank you i am going to devote a lot of time. As others said i know the satisfaction of seeing my work on someones t shirt and one day their car is going to be unbelievable :) I see that this place is very friendly and supportive i love that :). Im good to hear that i picked out good guns because i wasnt really sure but i did compare the price of what i got it for and what they were selling for.

Hopefully next week i will be putting some work up :)
