  • Airbrush

    Airbrushes

    Airbrushes come in a variety of functionalities. Brushes can be internal-mix where air and paint are mixed inside the tip for a soft, fine spray pattern. Or they can be external-mix, mixing air and paint outside of the tip to produce a course spray pattern.

    Airbrushes can also be double action or single action. With a double action airbrush, pushing down the button activates the air flow, while pulling back determines the amount of fluid released. Double action airbrushes make it simple for the user to change the width of the line, the range of value and the opaqueness of a color using just one hand.

    If you are preparing for a hobby or craft application, consider utilizing a single-action external mix airbrush as an economical solution for painting with ceramic glazes or high viscosity materials.

    If you’re still stumped about the ideal airbrush for your project, stop in to a Prizm store. Our knowledgeable associates are ready to find exactly what you need to take your artwork to the next level.

  • Compressor

    Compressors

    You can’t start an airbrush project without air! Based on the color and the nature of the project, an artist will need varying air pressure per square inch, or PSI. Airbrushing makeup or a temporary tattoo onto sensitive skin only requires 15 to 20 PSI, while embedding color into coarse fabrics like canvas needs about 55 to 60 PSI. Lighter colors, like white also require more air pressure, while darker colors like blue and purple need less.

    There are two ways to get the perfect air pressure for your project – air compressors and propellant cans. Air compressors are the economical choice, since the cost of disposable, one use propellant cans can add up quickly.

    Today’s airbrush compressors are virtually silent, automatic and offer easily adjustable air pressure. Artists can find an assortment of the most up to date compressors from Silentaire and Iwata, as well as propellant cans at Prizm Art Stores.
