As the day dawned I was met by a mixture of anticipation and dread. For the last week I had been procrastinating about beginning to use the airbrush. Even yesterday, after writing my first blog post I was trying to find anything else to do to justify that I had no more time available to begin.
Today I was determined to stop the procrastination and embark on my adventure.
After connecting all the equipment together I ran a few tests and then embarked on my new painting life. The initial results were poor, mostly due to not being able to coordinate a combination of blasting air across the model and mixing paint – coordination had never been a strong suit for me.
You can see me first results on the video below. I did improve greatly from my first attempts as the photos at the end of the video will attest to.
So where to now? I remarked to my wife earlier how much fun I had using the airbrush, the problem is I have to complete the models I have now sprayed before I spray more – this was an unforeseen problem that I have to deal with. Don’t be surprised if I end up with a heap of airbrushed models awaiting final painting.
