Airbrushing is a versatile and exciting art. The technique has been used for some 150 years, and is now finding ever more applications. This beautiful book, now in paperback for 2022, explains how to use an airbrush. It looks at the fundamentals of how to get started, advises on maintenance of the tool and then gives step-by-step examples of a range of projects. Topics covered include: technical illustration; watercolour landscapes; portraits; painting scale models; cake decorating; T-shirts and leather and finally, custom painting vehicles. With troubleshooting tips throughout, it enables you to get the most from your airbrush and create beautiful pieces with a professional finish. 'To those who airbrush the joys are well known, as well of course, the trials and tribulations of managing the instrument itself. The airbrush student has to learn significant new skills - to master not only colour and shade, but also air pressure, paint consistency and the diverse ways of masking and shading that can help to achieve such wonderful results.' Prof Andy Penaluna
