    Hey has anyone used the Copic marker airbrush gun,it takes a marker for your paint theres no cleaning between color changes.If anyone has used it let me know.They have a web-site and I saw a guy using it to paint lures for fishing,thought might be good for us in the taxidermy studios. Thanks Randy

    Not the exact same system, but I was introduced to something really similar in college where I cut my teeth on the "air brush". As far as good enough for the shop? If it's like the set I had, I doubt it. The colors were very general and you have one spray pattern and psi. Plus, the ink was more like dye. It worked on paper okay but long term the colors faded (and that was sitting in a closed drawer!). Unless someone has direct experience with this brand, I would think a cheap real air brush and cans of compressed air would be better than this (or the tire deal). JMO...
