Airbrushing!

Discussion in 'Forum Operations' started by RWTAXIDERMY, Dec 8, 2006.

  1. Would anyone like to see a section for airbrushing, finishing mounts, technical problems, etc?

    I think this would be great.

    Maybe someone could tell me how to throw the brush through the drywall instead of having it bounce back.

    Tim, look at the top of the paint jar...there should be a small vent hole in the cap. If it's plugged the paint won't come out of the cup.

    I really think a discussion forum on finishing,airbrushing and paint,etc would be a great asset and I think we need one. It would help alot of people avoid alot of trial and error,not that that's all bad.
     
  8. FYI
    Anyone going to the World Show in Reno, NV.... On the Fish Carving side there is going to be a seminar put on by Bearair for about 1 1/2 hours on the A to Z of airbrushing.

    A number of fish carvers had questions and problems with airbrushing and wanted general good information on airbrushing, so we asked Larry Bloomquist if he would consider having someone put on the seminar and he graciously consented so it will be available. Think it will be a good general information seminar. Maybe not for the experienced taxidermist but for the up and coming taxidermists and carvers I think it will be great.

    I have also signed up for the Taxidermy side, have to see some of your seminars and your mounts, you fellows do fantastic work. Hoping to see some name tags of people I see on here.

    I don't have a lot of problems with air. But I do run my pressure to the brush most of the time at 80psi.
