    About Airbrushing Setup and Stuff

    Me as a beginner watch WGConsortium's video on YouTube and it helped me a lot. His videos help a lot for beginners to buy and know about airbrushing. It also teach you how to paint with airbrush. Go to his playlist call Airbrushing for the Beginners. Then you will find all of his videos which teach you about airbrushing and stuff like that.



    Hope it will help Smile Smile Smile

    I know there are spraybooths, but that can be rather exp.

    I breath in all the fumes. I'm prepared to sacrifice 5 years of my life for this hobby.

    Just kidding.

    I didn't want to spend money on the spray booth, so I brought a cheap plastic container box from ikea. let it stand so the opening is facing me, after which I cut a big hole on top of the plastic container. The hole is an opening for the outlet of a AC cooling fan. I got the fan from Slim Lim towers, about $15 to $30, depending on the size.

    I then cut out a cooking oil filter, folded it a few times and covered the hole with it. The fan is sort of pointing at an angle facing my window, so it kinds of suck out anything the filters cannot trap.

    Total cost me less than $40.

    Doesn't really works 100% like those spray booth, but I think I shorten my 5 years sacrifice to 1 year.
