Airbrushing 101
A Complete Intro to Airbrushing Course in a Workbook!


Our book is a workbook, the likes of which have NEVER been seen before in the airbrush industry! It is different than any educational publication previously available because it is formatted like, and is being used as, a textbook.

There are over 50 challenging, yet approachable, lessons that tackle all of the elements that the airbrush can perform: dots, lines, daggers, shading and textures.

Each skill is introduced in a fun and exciting lesson that has a corresponding workbook page in the back of the book. Just duplicate each page, and do the exercise over and over until proficiency is achieved. Small successes build quick muscle memory and mastery. The skills build on each other, and by the last lesson, the 4 beautiful final projects are able to be successfully mastered.

Imagine being able to offer your airbrush clients a positive educational experience!
