Airbrush kits add unique touches to crafts, clothing, shoes and more. They have three main components: the feed, mix and trigger. The feed is responsible for how the paint disperses into the airbrush. You can choose gravity, siphon or side feeds. The gravity feed is best for covering smaller areas, while the latter two help to create detailed work. The mix refers to how the paint and compressed air release. Internal mix offerings allow the air and color to mix inside the airbrush to offer more control. With external mix devices, the air and paint are released through separate chambers and combine outside of the airbrush. Airbrush triggers are the components responsible for controlling how the air and paint are released. Single action trigger airbrushes are easier to use, while dual-action choices let you control the air and paint simultaneously for more precise results. Read on to see some of the best airbrush kits available.
