A new Airbrushing video is up! In this one I airbrush three pairs of ears from start to (more or less) finished (I finished my camera battery in the last few minutes).
I enjoyed filming/editing/watching it and I hope you do too!

My FAQ: www.beetlecatoriginals.com/faq…
WHERE TO BUY FUR:
www.crscraft.com (international) – Realistic furs. Ignore the short pile and fun fur as it is not good for anything except small accents. I use a lot of their furs in my suits.
www.imstuffedfur.com (international) – High quality random assortment of furs. Pricy but worth it if you need something unusual
www.distinctivefabrics (USA) www.interiormall.com (search for 'promo shag') (Canada) – solid colors of fluffy fur for toonier characters.
I use Createx airbrush paints. My airbrush is a Badger 155 Anthem. My compressor is an IWATA Smart Jet.
No I can not tell you what airbrush/compressor to buy. The above is what I have and it works for me. Createx (transparent or opaque does not matter) has proven to be one of the longest lasting paints, but you can airbrush with any material that you can get to come out the nozzle. In a pinch I'll use basic artist's acrylics.
