Response to choosing the right airbrush ,begineers guide to airbrushing
My airbrush journey went like this: a Badger 150, Aztek something or other and now an Iwata HB. I wish I had gotten my Iwata immediately due to its ease in clean up and ability to give me extremely fine control. However, you'll still need a reliable air source.
Although the propellent cans are initally inexpensive, they don't last long and can not give you pressure adjustment, essential for fine detail work.
Try to go to your local pub and ask about where they get their CO2 cans. These are used in any establishment having fountain soft drinks. Some places rent these, some sell them. In the US they normally come in two sizes. A full smaller one (about 3 ft high) will last me 1-2 years. The equipment you'll need is a regulator -- this will allow you to adjust the pressure.
As for your space limitations -- you need to be concerned for enamel/lacquer fumes. Not a good thing for yours, your family's or pets' health.
