Choosing the Right Airbrush

BDA60001 (4)

Are you looking for the best airbrush? There are so many choices in features and configurations…  Gravity feed, siphon feed, side feed.  External mix, internal mix.  Dual action, single action, trigger action.

Consult the Airbrush Dictionary if you’re dying to find out what all those terms mean, or just keep reading.

Then you have to take into consideration the different manufacturers out there. Iwata, Badger, Paasche, Grex, Richpen, Harder and Steenbeck, countless other private brands and even nameless airbrushes that look like any of the above…

So, how do you choose the best airbrush?

The Extremely Short Version for Impatient Beginners

Actually it’s easy…

  1. Choose a gravity feed, dual action, internal mix airbrush from a name brand manufacturer like Badger, Iwata, or Paasche.

  2. If you use a one airbrush per color, or one bottle per color setup, choose a siphon feed instead of the gravity feed.

That’s it.
