I'm a teacher in Canada and in my spare time I like to pick up an airbrush. I initially picked up the airbrush when I was into painting miniatures but have since moved on to painting a few murals for my one son, and a couple of panels for both of my boys. My wife loves to make cakes (much to the detriment of my waistline) and has conned me into doing some airbrush work for her with edible inks. For my hardware I recently picked up a H&S Evolution 2 in 1 which I have fallen in love with. Prior to this I was on an Iwata Eclipse BCS which has since been relegated to painting with edible inks. For my compressor I used to use the Iwata sprintjet but I decided I could deal with noisy so went to the hardware store and got a 3 gallon compressor which while it is noisy only kicks in every 20/30 minutes for me.
