If any of you have a Harbor Freight store in your area and are not sure if you want to spend big bucks on an air brush just to learn on, here's a really, really cheap solution. I bought one several years ago, it works fine, I can't compare it to anything else because I don't have anything else, but for $2.99, how can you go wrong. Oh yeah, you do need a compressor. I didn't feel like using the one I have in the garage so I bought a small one just for use with an air brush. I also got that at Harbor Freight for...well.....gee, around $60. This coupon is good through Sept 9th.
