Default Spritzer/Airbrush

The other day I purchased the Perfect Paper Crafting Spritzer and I just have to share. It's so much fun to use.

PERFECT AIRBRUSH - Perfect Paper Crafting

If you are wondering, it looks exactly like the Tim Holtz spritzer, so if you don't want to preorder and wait, I suggest you get one from Perfect Paper Crafting . The preorder price for TH is the same at SSS as it is at PPC.

I just love it and it will replace any of the spray mists that I've used in the past that are so hard to control. I'll probably still keep some Mini Misters to make my own with certain inks, etc., but the Spritzer makes so much less mess than sprays.

Technically, it is airbrushing - air is forced over the color medium. But I tend to think of air compressor-driven airbrushing effects as very smooth, more like sponging. This type of device gives you more of a fine spray of tiny dots. It's possible that I'm the only one making that distinction . But it does exactly what it's supposed to do and makes a beautiful spray effect.

Anyway... just wanted to share. Loads of fun!

Hello Phantom ::waves::

Jennifer McGuire just posted this video with a few different techniques using the spritzer tool - I think they look pretty cool

"Spritz away" LOL

So, I'm not the only one that thinks it's a misnomer! I do love that the spritzer tool gives a much more controlled result than the spray inks (like Glimmer Mist), and I really like the speckling look of all the tiny dots. But one day, I may just cave and go for an airbrush. I've read a bit about the compressed air in cans but I get the impression that they don't last that long and are pretty pricey.

I'd try a can of compressed air first just to see how I do with it, then I may still consider the Craftwell eBrush or another actual air brush system down the road, but not ready to put the big bucks into it just yet.

Thanks for sharing your experience .

Is there a way to use markers such as Copics with the Pasche?

Default Air Brush

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I have the Copic system. Just wondering if there was a better alternative. I've never even opened the package on my Copic one to try it out! I'm a "collector."

I have a compressor from Harbor Freight which was around $60 at the time with a coupon and a Copic pen holder attachment which I got through Oozak for around $30 at the time. I just use dimensional tape and masking tape to hold Copic Ciao and non Copic markers in the holder. Much cheaper than going with "craft/art" compressors and still have the option of adding a traditional airbrush system onto my compressor if I want.
