The airbrush is a handy and versatile tool for applying a wide variety of paint quickly. From t-shirts to vehicles, it is especially well suited for blending colors and working on soft or rough surfaces, such as cloth or brick walls.
The airbrush never touches the surface of whatever you are painting on. It sprays the paint forward from a variable distance, providing a thin line when it's close to the surface, or a more broad and softer pattern as it gets further from the surface.
This video shows the basic equipment I use to paint my murals.
Most of the work is done with a compressor and an inexpensive spray gun to fill in the background. Then I use a "double-action" airbrush to add all the details.
I use the airbrush for a lot of the work that I do. It's an essential tool for shading and adding the fine details and highlights.
If you're interested in learning how to use an airbrush, begin with a double-action airbrush. This video demonstrates how they work and how to maintain one.
Here's a 3-minute video of the process I use to create an automotive themed mural. It's fun to watch, and as I develop more videos, I'll be offering more detailed videos about how to do these types of projects.

Here's a 6-minute video that demonstrates the process of adding a vehicle into the landscape.
First I layout the background, then I add in the Jeep, then I surround the Jeep with supportive landscaping.
It's fun to watch, and I hope you enjoy it!
You Have the Talent, So Where Is the Money? is a facinating guidebook for creating an exciting lifestyle that is as financially rewarding to the bank account, as it is emotionally rewarding to the creative spirit that lives within us.
Spoiler Alert! We don't get paid for having talent. We only get paid when we provide a product or service to others. However, if the product or service we provide to others involves one or more of our talents, we will probably enjoy the work we do and we will probably do good work because we are enjoying ourselves. We will probably get paid well because we do good work, but are not being paid just because we have talent. We only get paid when we use our talents in ways that serve others.
This book explores some interesting ways we can use our talents to earn money, regardless of what our particular talents may be. While the book focuses on art and artists, the message applies to any form of creative expression.
By applying our talents in practical ways that serve the needs of others, we can convert our unique talents into a product or service that people are willing to pay for. This is a guidebook that shows you how to do it.
You Have the Talent, So Where Is the Money? is available on Amazon and from Barnes & Noble or at www.BalboaPress.com in e-book, paperback and hardcover.
