AMMO Modeling Guide: How to Paint with the Airbrush – MIG6131
AMMO Modeling Guide: How to Paint with the Airbrush shows all the necessary techniques for using an airbrush to paint all kinds of models, from figures and military vehicles to dioramas and aircraft, in addition to proper cleaning and maintenance. With the collaboration of a talented team, José Luis López walks you through 180 pages filled with all the secrets of the airbrush in a fun and exciting way using easy-to-understand examples and step-by-step processes. This guide is the companion you need to master a tool as necessary in current modelling as the airbrush.
The first part explains technical aspects related to the airbrush itself and the compressor, including the fundamental parameters of paint dilution rates and air pressure settings, lighting and arrangement of the work table, and the equipment and procedures necessary to clean and maintain the airbrush.
The second part shows the endless application possibilities and painting techniques that can be applied with the airbrush, including pre-shading and base coats, camouflage schemes, highlights and shadows, stencils, varnish applications, transparent colours, weathering, as well as the use of the airbrush to paint dioramas and figures.
In addition, a final appendix has been included where you will learn how to use this versatile tool in a field other than modelling: makeup, nail painting and body painting, which may allow you to use your painting equipment for the joy of your loved ones.
