I have neither read the book nor used an airbrush, but I work for the company so I feel compelled to mention this book. Wink [;)]

Bob Downie's book (posged above) is one of the best I've ever read. It's a 'staple' for the how-to section...

I have that book, and I'm done reading it. It's in perfect condition. Do you want to buy it from me?

Wyman, don't be intimidated by an airbrush just because it looks fancier than a handbrush. Just set yourself up and start spraying. Practice on a piece of paper or cardboard. Save yourself the cash for paint and other essential stuff.

Every airbrush model has a different temper and you getting the feel for the tool is more important than all the airbrushing theory in the world.
