airbrush

anyone seen the realistic flames dvd? im wondering what kind of airbrush mickey harris is using... looks good for large jobs - he is just sticking a bottle of Auto Air paint to the bottom of it and spraying until time for a differ color and then swapping bottles. 4 oz of paint would get me further than this little hvlp bowl !! . thanks for any ideas. -r4r

i think he wanted a suction feed airbrush. the hp-c is an excelent brush but is more for high detail work. the iwata eclipse bp-bcs would be a better choice. its a good all around brush for some mild detail as well as larger areas and is a bottle feed. www.coastairbrush.com has them for $75. you can also try www.dixieart.com

right

i have the iwata like the one in the link willys posted and i have seen the ones like that with the bottle i guess what im trying to figure out - is can i just snap on a bottle of createx auto air? - take the lid off the auto air and screw the jar up to the brush and when im done put the lid back on the jar to keep from buying jars out the wazoo and cluttering things up - plus its pretty handy - thanks r4r

oops!! that model # was a typo. its an hp-bcs and yes its very similar to the hp-c but takes bottles. not sure if the createx bottles fit right on but if you call coast airbrush they would be able to tell you that.

You can either buy the HP-BCS Iwata or a Paasch VL for the siphon fed bottle type. My 2 airbrushes are gravity fed and I find are better than siphon because the paint is right up front and there is no effort for the brush to propell the paint. You might also want to check out Mike Lavallee's True Fire DVD. He uses HOK paints and acheives a more realistic looking fire. I am in no way knocking Mickey Harris as he is an incredible artist, but the Killer paint DVD is worth every penny

copy

will the siphons take the auto air bottle tho?
thanks r4r i just got word from coast and they said i just need the longer siphon tube 0- i think im going to check out the other artists and see what i can come up with. hok is too pricey for me - i wanna profit and practice for less auto air seems to be the best way for now.
