Wargaming, Conversions, Paint and more
Very nice work. I really need to get an airbrush.
Second that notion. I was there when he painted this model. It took about an hour from start to static grass.
I'll be scraping that static grass off. Stupid radioactive looking grass....
cool stuff man
I think Santa aka the Wife is getting me an air brush for Christmas.Any you would suggest?
This is great stuff. I have been getting all my ducks in line to start working on my new Red Scorpions army and plan on making ample use of an airbrush. I literally got up this morning thinking about how to go about using washes with one...
Matthias, the universe spoke to us!Warhammer 40k- I use an Iwatta Eclipse HP-CS. I like it, it's simple and easy to clean. It came with a .35mm tip/needle that I'm happy-ish with. I need to get a new one just because of my abuse of mine from when I would tighten the cap down over the tip too much and it would lodge it into the body of the brush or the cap, so to clean it I had to use some pliers on it and I'm sure the inner part is scratched up and causing problems. I'm also getting some air back flow into the cup that I'll need to trouble shoot eventually, but for now its not causing me too much grief. None of these things are a result of the airbrush though. And to be honest with you, I seem to really abuse mine way more then other people do theirs and it's still working just fine.
Whats the big bottle of blue stuff in the background you thinned with - is it windex?
Yeah. I bought a big stock bottle of it because the wife was tired of yelling "GOD DAMN IT, WHERE IS THE F***ING WINDEX!" I also bought a bunch of the picnic style ketchup squeezie bottles that I putt all my liquitex mediums and stuff like that in. (White glue, gesso, matte medium, windex, ect.) Dick Blick and art stores like hobby lobby/micheals sell bottles, but they were 2 to 3 times as much as the squeezie bottles.
Cheers on the response. I noted the use of the little bottles and thought that was a deceptively simple way to manage mixes etc.Cheers for the post - it's useful for more than just demonstrating the techniques used.Pom
