After thirty years I'm picking up the airbrushes again. Many years ago I was a wildlife artist and used all kinds of mediums including airbrushes. When I went through a bad divorce, I closed my gallery and sold off everything and never produced a piece of art again till now. A good friend ask me if I would camo his Dads old shotgun. I thought that would be pretty easy so I got three or four cans of spray paint and started in. The next thing I know I'm using some old masking tricks and hiding some ducks and turkeys in the camo with some brush work and masking tape. And that opened a can of worms. My friend loved it so mush he took pictures and started showing them around to his friends and to some of the local gun shops. I really didn't feel like going though the learning curve I went through many years ago living in a rural place with little to no support. Then I found ya'll and decide to give it another chance. Just found my old badger (sold then by sears) And it seems to be in working order.

Thanks for being here!

Welcome!!!!!! Great forum isn't it? I also airbrushed for a bit in my teens and not for long. Then all of the sudden, addicted and Mitches forum was the absolute best for new or professional artists. It's a great place to learn and teach. Hope your experience will be as enjoyable as mine has and continues to be.
