If you have a regulator it would be no problem to dial the pressure back...on the kind of tank I use.

I have a very old Paasche compressor I got with my first Paasche V airbrush when I was in high school (1986) - I noticed an extremely annoying problem in that the air 'pulsed' as it was coming out of the compressor - and created spotty lines coming out of the airbrush. Not the biggest compressor, I might add (I always have wanted a 'silent' Jun-Air)

It was suggested at the time I add a reservoir 'bladder' in line and as I could not find *anybody* who sold bike inner tubes, I went to my local hardware store, got some end connectors and about two feet of soft clear vinyl hose. Just soft enough to contain and iron out the 'pulse' problem and smooth air afterwards. No more pulse or spotty lines...

I have no idea if the diaphragms in the compressor are still intact. I fell in love with this sick airbrush setup that Copic makes - works with their artist markers - no more color cups and having seen a guy painting foam bass popper heads with one... man.... trying to come up with an excuse to get one

Maybe take a look at the make-up airbrush thing on tv.

You can get a cheap airbrush to play with from Harbor Freight:

They sell the inline regulators too. Also water absorbing in line filters.

--also sometimes find used professional quality equipment at Mile High Flea Market. Automotive swap meets are another source. Although the stuff you find used is usually for sale there because it's clogged and dirty. If you get serious, you can spend a lot of money for professional level equipment and materials. But you get what you pay for.

Kenny, I think your work looks pretty good!

Nice job, A-town Kenny! That's a great looking lure...I've tossed around this idea, but am unsure about the paint to use.

I would think you can paint Dardevle style spoons, spinners, and plain(er) cranks and other stuff with a single action brush. If you want to do really small spots and lines, you'll need a dual action brush. I have the HF clone of the 350 S\A Badger (the 10.99 one with 2 cups), and honestly it works great! I've been pretty surprised..I wouldn't hesitate to try simple stuff with it.

Even with a single action brush you can get a lot of detail done with stencils.

Good point..I'm kinda new to airbrushing and I was thinking only in terms of freehand painting because of what I bought the brush for. Just gives me another excuse to use it
