airbrush for painting baits

Recommended Posts

I did a quick search didn’t really find what I was looking for. I have a air compressor already can I just buy a decent gun and hose for now and if so please recommend a decent mid grade gun. Not looking to break the bank just want to play around for a while and see how much I get into it. I can get a propor compressor later if that’s possible. Looking to get started and play.

Don't forget to get a pressure regulator as what a standard compressor puts out is much too powerful for an airbrush.

 

Also get a filter that handles condensed water as well as particles - water in your paint is a bad thing.

The more I look at it, I think I’m better off buying a decent kit and upgrading the gun later. By the time I buy a gun, hose regulator,moister collector. I don’t think I’m that far off from the price of a kit with a descent enough gun to get started. Would still love opinions or advice.

Badger - IMO the best Airbrush manufacturer - has a basic kit that includes an airbrush, canned air, hose and a few paint bottles. It's a fairly good airbrush and you can upgrade in steps. Compressor, better airbrush, etc as the hose and bottles are pretty much universal.

 

I have this same model airbrush, used for scale modeling, and it's served me well for a number of years.

 

I've got a 2.5 gallon compressor with regulator and filter instead of a dedicated compressor for the airbrush.

I just started airbrushing my own lures around Christmas so my experience level is novice, at best. I started with a "kit" which included three airbrushes and while they were ok, I upgraded to this airbrush about a month ago and the difference for me was night and day. The cost is more middle of the road, but the performance is elite.

The site is also first class. My first order they did not include some paints that I ordered. One email and two days later I had the missing items, plus some extras. Very good people to deal with. Good luck to you.
