General Ramblings #23 - Airbrushes

Recently I was asked about airbrushes. What do I use? What would I recommend?


To be honest, I had to stop and think about it.

I use an Iwata Eclipse HP-CS for most of my work. It's a work horse, can push about any paint you stick in the cup. If you don't believe me, have a look at the work Kenny Boucher, from Next Level Painting, does. I recommend the Eclipse to anyone who is getting into airbrushing. So forgiving and still gives good results.

Previous to this I used a Badger Patriot 105, which is still a good airbrush, of itself, but ultimately would have achieved better results in more capable hands. I did swap the original 0.5 needle for a finer 0.3 needle, via an upgrade kit and it was a workhorse but ultimately I found the Eclipse a more reliable airbrush to use.
