First Airbrush Attempt at Clouds

November 2nd, 2007 · No Comments

CloudsThe first attempt at using the Badger airbrush was a success, of sorts. The acrylic white paint was used with a stencil cut-out in the shape of clouds to form the first attempt at clouds on the backdrop. The paint was too thick at first so I thined it out with the addition of cool tap water. The ratio was about 60% paint and 40% water to get the correct flow. Using the fine tip these clouds are okay, but I know they could be better. Funny thing is they actually look better in the photographs than in person. Go figure!
