Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wanted to create book that really explained how to airbrush. A book that both new airbrush artists and experienced airbrush artists would enjoy and learn from. This book is the result of over 25 years of hard learned airbrush lessons. In many ways this is a how NOT to do book, as I explain all the things that went wrong when I was airbrushing, so you will learn how NOT to do something and you can learn from my mistakes. In this book, I explain almost every kind of airbrush there is, and you can find the airbrush that will work best for your needs. I explain the various kinds of paints that are used. All the tools, both big and little that I love to use, tools that I cannot live without. There are easy to follow lessons on how to figure out your airbrush and how to master its control. Then there's chapters with easy to follow lessons on creating some pretty cool and fun airbrush paintings of your own. After that we get onto the real fun stuff, using your airbrush to create a painting of just about anything you want, animals, motorcycles, pinup girls, skulls, mechanical things, scenes from nature. Want  to take a photograph and use it to create an airbrush painting? This book shows you how.
Most people see my airbrush work and think wow its so beautiful, how did she do that? Those paintings are a results of many ups and downs. There are many sidebars in each chapter with very handy hints on all the little things most artists have to learn the hard way. But with this book, I explain many of them, so you don't have to make the same mistakes I learned along the way to creating those amazing paintings.
And this book also has another special feature. Its very easy to get discouraged when you're trying something new. In my book, I explain how NOT to get discouraged. How to get over the rough spots in your artistic journey. And there's some fun stuff, funny parts of photos and explainations. This book is a one stop resource for any airbrush artist. Tools, techniques and attitudes, you'll find it here.

Whether you want to custom paint graphics on the hood of your hot rod, the tank of your motorcycle, a fine-art canvas, or a T-shirt, mastering the art of airbrushing is the key to bringing your vision to life.

Expert custom painter and author JoAnn Bortles takes the beginner through the first steps of becoming an airbrush artist with How to Master Airbrush Painting Techniques. She starts by explaining how to choose and buy equipment, how to master strokes and air pressure, and the materials and accessories a painter will need. And when you’re ready to move on to portraits, metal effects, complex stencils, landscapes and more, Bortles gives you the tools to tackle more difficult projects.

Drawing on years of expertise and writing in a laidback style, JoAnn Bortles eases you into the world of airbrushing like no other instructor can. So if you’re intimidated by the thought of that first pull of the airbrush trigger, How to Master Airbrush Painting Techniques is the place to start.
