    I am very interested in investing in doing some airbrushing for vehicle graphics. Are there any locations that offer training like this in Indiana or near Indiana? I have the air compressor, however I need to know which guns to purchase, which paints (compatible with vehicle paint or gloss) to purchase and use as well as training on how to maintain the equipment's longevity.
    Thanks! =)

    Iwata, Paasche, Badger all make some great air brushes, if you already have the compressor make sure you pick up a decent moisture trap and regulator for it.

    Call Badger Airbrush at 1-800-airbrush they have a list of artists that teach and may be able to help you. They are located in Chicago so give it a shot. Take a close look at their newest airbrush the Renegade, it will be the nicest airbrush out there.

    Why do you want to try and learn to airbrush (which will take years to become good) when your profile said that you use photoshop and have an edge machine? An Airbrush is a tool that there are many types of, depending on what type of medium you are going to use and what type of painting you are doing. Some are for super fine detail and others are for a more broder use. Check out airbrushaction.com they have classes on dvd for beginners to experts.
