Today, we’re going to look at the best airbrush kits that you can add to your hobby kit, art studio, or even your daily beauty regimen! Whether you want to add flames to the side of your motorbike or paint a pretty rainbow on your child’s birthday cake, we found several airbrush kits for all of your crafty desires! Before buying a new airbrush kit, here are a few important features you should be familiar with first. Let’s get started!
Type: Depending on what hobby you plan to use your airbrush kit for, you’ll want to make sure to buy one that works for your chose medium. Some airbrushes are great for makeup, body paint, cake decorating, automotive paint, and more!
Pieces: We noted how many pieces come in each kit, so you can plan on buying an all-inclusive kit with the parts you need to get started, or just buy a motor or gun to go with what you already own!
Max Pressure: The maximum pounds per square inch (psi) is the amount of air pressure applied to a square inch of a surface. Higher psi machines are great for thicker paint, and lower psi machines are good for thinner paint like makeup.
Tip Size: We also let you know the tip sizes that come with your airbrush kit, so you can create the level of detail you want! Some have larger tips for creating washes of color, and smaller tips for more intricate work.
Hose Length: The hose length is the length from the motor to the airbrush gun. Longer hoses are great for doing large projects like body paint or big canvases, and smaller hoses are good for working in small spaces and easy storage.
Warranty: While it’s not common for airbrush kits to have warranties, we noted which companies offer them. If you’re investing a lot into your airbrush kit, a warranty is a good assurance that you can get it repaired if it breaks!
Now that you know more about airbrush kits, let’s find the best one for your next big project!
