Achieve fantastic and unique results only possible by mastering the skills of airbrush painting.

Airbrush painting is an art like any other, requiring talent and skill; but it is also a technology that, more than other art forms, calls for technical mastery of equipment used in the process. JoAnn Bortles, one of the top airbrush artists in the United States, has developed a teaching curriculum for mastering both the technology and techniques needed to be a successful airbrush artist-an approach that frees her students to develop their own airbrush art. How to Master Airbrush Painting Techniques presents this curriculum in a logical, step-by-step fashion. Along with guiding readers through a series of projects, Bortles also provides all the knowledge needed for developing projects. Not only does her book explain what to do in a clear, easy-to-follow way, it explains why.

Although this book and its author come from an automotive background, the techniques are the same. We have all seen some amazing airbrush designs on airplanes. If you too would consider such a challenge, here's how its done. Completely illustrated with step by step color photography throughout, How to Master Airbrush Painting Techniques is a comprehensive source for beginners and experienced painter alike.
