    Do you ever tryed air brush?

    I bought one last year thinking it was about the same thing as painting with cans but smaller...It is not....there is too much things to think about : getting the good pressure level, the good consistance of paint, the good nibs adjustment, the good distance....and there is always some shit happening when you don't want to

    I really think it's too sophisticated...plus I hate washing all of these small parts...

    I think i'm too lazy to learn this medium even if it can make really fresh work.

    Anyway ... <_< I should have put all this money on cans!

    i have an airbrush.The whole set up cost me $500 AU but found it difficult to lean.Try using sencils and butter paper with spray adhesive to make what the patternswant then you'll see the real stuf an airbush can achieve.

    You can get the best fades imaginable and intricate detail.

    ptsone is right, this badass tatoo place did what almost all of them do which is put their work on the wall, they did the work with montana, but they finished it with this airbrush with some foriegn name and that was the most detailed work i have ever seen. it took them hours so i aint plannin on usin one for my work.

    airbrush are a different story when it comes to cans, its harder and its hard to keep it clean. I bought one and i got to lazy to use it, its just to hard to keep it clean.U need a lot of practice in order to do some tight shit, i thought it would be easy like drawing w/ a pencil but it was not like that.Fuck airbrushes. :D

    If u have a steady hand you will be alright. You need to be confident and practice makes perfect. I usually get sidetracked and start bombing up tags instead...lol.I need to get a house so i can bomb up the back wall/garage.

    Ever since I started painting my dad was bugging me about airbrush..."you don't need to buy caps for airbrushes" "you can mix your own paint for airbrushes" stuff like that, so then he got me one for chrismas and I just don't like it. It just feels weird, theres too much to take care of, I keep it around for stencils but I just don't dig it.
