A Practical Guide to Air Brushing

A Practical Guide to Air Brushing

by Andy Charlesworth (Author)

Synopsis

Although the airbrush has been in use since the early 1900s, there are s till comparatively few artists who actually specialize in this area. Indee d, the very mention of the word "airbrush" is still inclined to induc e panic in any art school. Yet if any professional airbrush artist is asked where and how they learnt their skill, their answer is always - "self taught". This not only takes hours of precious time, but also ends up co sting a lot of money in terms of wasted material. This guide aims to break down the barriers and cut through the auras that seem to surround this tool. As well as explaining the history, mecha nics and maintenance of an airbrush, a comprehensive guide is also suppl ied to all the media and equipment which will be necessary before start ing. Once these initial stages have been grasped, the book provides basic step-by-step exercises, covering basic control, masking techniques, the v aried effects possible, and repairing mistakes. The final section lays out individual projects, from photo-retouching to customizing cars, illus trated with finished examples from the professionals - not only to illus trate exactly what can be achieved, but to supply the novice with a goal.
