How to Use an Airbrush
Artist Tony Moore demonstrates how to use an airbrush.
Tony Moore: Hello, my name is Tony Moore. I am with Fraser Street Publications. I'll be showing you how to use an airbrush. Some of the techniques that we'll be using will be controlling an airbrush, masking techniques, spray patterns and how to render geometric shapes. Your work area is very important to working with an airbrush. You want to make sure that you have a very well ventilated area. Also, if you have respiratory issues, you want to make sure that you use a mask.
The materials that you'll need to render with an airbrush include a dual action airbrush, an X-acto knife, airbrush paint, frisk masking film, newsprint paper, bristol board and an easel. At our company Fraser Street, we publish children stories including the 'Mustafa and the Holy Men,' 'Friends to the Rescue' and 'Johnny's New Kingdom.
' 'Friends to the Rescue' being a children's book that we actually published. Let's get started.
