Great videos.
Simple, and very direct. This explained to me some of the mistakes I was making. You make it look so simple. Must be the years of experience.

thank you

Awesome vids....now I know what most of my paint jobs are missing and you answered a lot of good questions that I have always had.

Just curious what compressor you use Charlie?

NP bro.
I use a Silent air 50. Not the cheapest compressor, but its going on 8 years now.

Raydee 01-06-2008 06:35 PM

Well I couldn't even hear your compressor. Mine is so loud that when it kicks on I jump sometimes. I am going to look into that compressor. Do you know any other hobby compressors that are quiet like yours?

ALthough still a little Pricey, http://www.coastairbrush.com/proddet...p?prod=MA1000A is a good one.

Much better than this one thats teh same price.
http://www.coastairbrush.com/prodimages/3000a.gif

And there is always Iwata.

Either one, buy one that fullfills your needs and fits your budget. Know that if you paint 30 bodies a week, you will need mroe than a diaphram compressor. If you paint say..once a month..then a diaphram compressor like teh Iwata is perfect for you. I probably would not get a Diaphram compressor like this http://www.dixieart.com/d500.jpg for they head up and build a lot of moisture in the hose. ANyway, good luck..there are a lot of them you can choose from.

Raydee 01-06-2008 09:32 PM

The first one isn't too bad...as long as its quiet. I am getting back into painting my own bodies so I will look into a new compressor and use my old one in the garage.

AIRBRUSH BASICS
 
Charlie,
I have a couple of questions for you.
Do you hand cut each individual body <same bobdies> or do you use templates for the same bodies.For example, if someone wanted four or five of the same same paint schemes on mutiple bodies.
I see that you are using tape for the bodies in the videos, do you ever have the need to use liquid mask?
Very nice paint work, and it is great that you share your knowledge and talent.
thanks
