    Default How to: Airbrush rust

    Here's a tutorial I just finished up on airbrushing a rusted look.

    Thanks guys. See what happens when I have time off? I can actually be somewhat productive.

    Great tut. Really makes me wish I had a place to spray. Having to do it outside puts a lot of limitations on painting.

    That's why I use auto air. It's automotive paint, but it's waterbased. This was shot in my basement. No bad chemicals.

    Yes, but we don't have a basement or utility room that I could paint in. Every room in our place is finished. I'd love to have a work/hobby room. Even though an air brush doesn't create much overspray my wife would kill me for it.

    Oh that sucks. You could put your easel in front of a window with a box fan blowing out. I gotta play devils advocate here. Lol.

    Build a small spray booth with a bathroom vent fan and an HVAC filter. I lived with my wife's grandparents in a small room for three years. Built a booth out of a cardboard box and duct tape so I could keep building plastic models. Worked perfectly fine. Never any overspray escaping.
