I am happy to report my ramblings (blogs) are getting out in the on-line world, and are proving to be helpful. I recently received an e-mail praising us for our air brush 101 guide (click here to read). It is a great resource to read when selecting the best airbrush for the application. Now I have been urged to put together the same for our range of Badger air compressors.
When you get right down to it, an air compressor is simply a machine that squeezes air into a tank and out a hose. When shopping for one, you need to consider your application (fancy word for project), how much pressure (PSI – Pounds per Square Inch) you will need and frequency of use.
A unit that generates at least 30 PSI is recommended to start airbrushing. Some applications, such as T-shirt painting or other fabric painting may be more efficiently done at higher pressures (up to 65 PSI). Other applications, such as finger nail art and illustrations may be more effectively done at lower pressures (as low as 10 PSI). For applications requiring both higher and lower pressures, using a regulator is recommended.
To assist you in the selection process and in comparing our air compressors, I had my team put together a guide with pretty pictures and all the specifications for each of our Badger air compressor lines.
The Airwave Series – will also be available with 220V European plugs
The Aspire Series – will also be available with 220V European plugs
The Silent Series
Several of Badger’s new compressors are already in stock and available for shipment!
For all those who work with miniature models, my hat comes off to you. It takes a lot of patience and skill to work on such a small scale. Two components that go into producing awesome small-scale models are good tools and knowing what you are doing. I wanted to share with you a guy who definitely knows what he is doing when it comes to miniature models. Check out Lester Bursley in action as he demonstrates how to paint a Doom Legion Space Marine. Whether it’s a space marine, figurine, fishing lure or model airplane, Les showcases how to effectively use your airbrush tools and paint colors for an awesome outcome.
