What type of airbrush should I start with?

Answer: Do not rush to buy! Ask yourself what you’d like to do first, watch some videos to take some classes.  It is easy to get an airbrush and not know what you are paying for :-)  Start with a more basic airbrush if you are beginner and advance to higher-end airbrushes.  Do not judge the airbrush by its price tag!  Whatever it works for you is the best airbrush for you.

What type of air-source or compressor do I need?

Answer: Again, it depends on what you need.  In general, the longer you work, the higher the air pressures you need, the more durable and strong compressor you need to have.  The noise level is also a very important factor for your working environment. Quieter the compressor costs more in price. 

Here is a basic formula for you to consider the compressor.

The ability to handle working hours (longer the better) + power (HP or watts, higher the better) + noise level (lower the better)

What type of paint do I need for airbrush?

Answer: We recommend using Createx airbrush colors (including Createx Auto-Air and Createx wicked airbrush colors), they are the most popular airbrush paints available with a wide range of color selections.  With proper prepping, these paints could be used on almost any surfaces.  Auto air and Wicked airbrush colors can be used outdoors on metal or plastics and they are compatible with urethane-based automotive clear coats.
