    Hi, ya'll! I'm just a hilljenny from Bama, still trying to learn to navigate this site. Had my first chat experience tonight, and everyone laughed when I said I couldn't find my way out of chat! But, they nicely explained it to me. I'm enjoying the site so far. Thanks, all!

    Hey y'all! I'm Penne and my other half is Nova99. We live in Fort Worth Texas, we both grew up here, but I moved to Georgia and lived there from ages 17 to 52. I love the Southern mild weather. Lucky, this is a wonderful site and I'm just so proud to be here! ;-)

    Just found this site today from a link on Facebook and thought I would join and offer my services. I do custom airbrush artwork as a side job out of my home in North Liberty, Iowa. My prices are very reasonable and I have been painting for about 3 years now. Check out my Facebook page for pictures of my work and contact info!

    I find myself coming back and looking around. Hope to make new friends now that I've found a place with people who have a common interest. Haven't saw nearly half of the stuff that is here, but its turned out to be a great find. I have a question and hope someone can answer it for me. At the risk of sounding stupid....LOL...let me say that first.... My Hubby who is now a Angel watching over me, gave me a complete airbrush setup. I don't know where to start. Anyone know if theres classes for these things in Kentucky or Upper middle Tenn? Or is this a trial and error sort of thing? I want to do it for fun, friends and entertainment purposes, not to start a business. I need something to occupy my time and thought this would help. Open to any ideas and appreciate the suggestions or help. Thanks in advance.

    painterlady- Welcome to CF!

    If you'd like to look at simple items you can do to start learning you could try http://www.howtoairbrush.com/ />
    If you don't mind paying for lessons you may want to try here:
    http://www.nextlevelairbrush.com/html/airbrushlessons.htm />
    Either way you look at it, it's a bit of trial and error mixed with a substantial amount of practice, practice, practice... Try using it freehand at first to get used to your brush's action and over time start working in your stencils and edges to bring out detail. Either way you choose to paint, just enjoy yourself!

    Thanks Ry, I've painted for years, so the practise doesn't intimidate me nor the freehand. But the websites you gave me I truly appreciate. I'll check them out. I'll try both, I don't mind paying for lessons, I just want to get started. Enjoyment will be a plus!

    Patience, practice, enjoy.
    There are so many new brushes, paints, info, etc. out there these days.
    Back in the day all I had was a couple of Badger single-action airbrushes, and thinned 1-shot paint. :-)
