Review

Craig Fraser is an icon in the world of airbrushing. Craig is a unique artist, and I am positive his book will enlighten you on a range of critical issues and show you just how he accomplishes his work of art. -- Jon Kosmoski - Founder, House of Kolor Kustom Paint Products

Excellent book! Well worth the money (all the pages are nice glossy paper). This book is extremely useful and comprehensive. The photos and layout are done well, with clear numbering and descriptions. An excellent book for the novice or pro. Another useful addition is the use of a materials list for complex and invovled projects. There are to many projects to list, but some of them include, a full-sized truck graphic layout, torn metal effects, chrome effects, and nebula demostrations. This book is one of the better automotive painting books around.

This is one of the best books of it's kind! I absolutely love this book! I've been a fan of Craig Fraser and Jon Kosmoski for years, and they(mostly Craig) have done a wonderful job compiling information and demonstrating various techniques in the field of automotive airbrushing. Though focused mainly on the automotive genre, these techniques can be used in any field of airbrushing!! Craig is one of a kind, and he has been a tremendous mentor to many, and a terrific teacher to "airheads" everywhere. For the price of the book, you will get priceless information! It's well written, informative, and loaded with the coolest tips and tricks!!!

I've never airbrushed before I got this book, but I feel like I have a head-start after reading it. It explains things very well, like the many types of automotive paint, and demonstrates the use of stencils and freehand sheilds. He even has a computer that he can make designs with! I always thought everything was done freehand. He also explains and demonstrates how to highlight and very effective use of shading and shadows. He even shows how to do a carbon fiber effect. Very cool! I highly recommend this book. Thanks!

This book is one of the best. It motivates a person to paint-paint-paint. This book has great tips, illustrations, directions and good common-sense.

If you like custom painting, you'll find several -other- nice books about the theme. This is not the only I've got about car painting and custom painting, but in fact, is not the one I like the most...

Even if it contains nice step-by-step procedures, and goes with most of the painting proceses you may want to know, is not a great font of inspiration -for me-. It is most like a airbrushing book, that goes even in painting things that I would never paint on cars... and really hate to see on cars...

Craig Fraser is surely a very good airbrush painter, but if you are looking for some custom painting, without getting your car out of mind, I'd suggest rather to buy "how to paint flames" or "pinstripping masters"... maybe also "advanced custom painting technics", but not this book.

All in all, it is not a bad book, is just not the kind of information I like to have on my library.
