Hi everyone, I am a 3rd year mechanical engineering student. I've been wanting to try my hand at airbrushing for a while now and within the past week I was given a paasche millennium set (never have I had that good of luck!). I'm not really sure if it is an extremely good one, but I do know it is not a bad one. I bought some spectra tek paint yesterday and was able to do some free hand today. It went fairly well, my lines weren't straight nor did they start where I wanted them, have the right width or saturation. I suppose all that will come with more practice.

I'm really enjoying using the airbrush as well as watching these tutorials. I still have plenty of questions and I think that I may be using this forum for a while. I look forward to working with all of you!

Welcome to the forum! I'm new to here myself, I used to live in PA (Near Allentown). I have never used a Paasche Millennium, so can't say anything about it's performance. Hope you enjoy reading and learning here as much as I have so far.

Hey rjs, welcome to the forum, glad you decided to give ABing a try. Don't know anything about that brush, but it seems to be working, so I suggest you download the practice sheets from the site and get stuck in. Have fun with it!

Thank you for the welcome. I just had an idea for practice for anyone else still learning like me that may read this: for practice getting the lines to start and stop where you want, do maze. Just google image search maze and find one that you feel comfortable with. I think that may be a little more entertaining.

Do they teach you all how to hand draw anymore or is everything AutoCad? Been 30+ years since I earned my degree and had to made the switch to the AutoCad ... Still have to do a lot of hand drawn stuff .

Im not sure what I want to do with it, I've thought about automotive, but I think I may like private reasearch and development better.


Everything is auto-cad. Im not sure if one of my future classes will touch on it, but if they do, it will be breif. What have you been doing with your degree?
