Mostly it is used not only in commercial or industrial purposes but can be of great help also at home. An airbrush is an air-operated instrument that sprays fluid whether paint, ink and stain on the different canvass like t-shirt and metal.

Using air brush compressor, an airbrush takes a fluid and turns it into airborne mist more like a spray paint can but highly controlled. The air must be attached to an air source, this time the air compressor before it can be sprayed.

The control is double action so you can increase, decrease the flow of paint as necessary. For the paint sources, Harder and Steenbeck airbrush available as gravity feed, side feed or bottom paint source. H&S airbrush is everything you need for your next project.

A compressed CO2 tank is compressor that is very important for airbrushing. It needs a regulator only that is of welding type and a screw on top of the tank. Moisture trap or oil filter is no longer necessary. It can be used for custom painting purpose like t-shirt printing, motorcycle, helmet and canvass. In the process paint brushing, paint is propelled through and out of the airbrush tip. It is in a controlled manner done by the compressed air in the compressor.
