There are more Airbrush Artist in this world, one of them is Luc Boivin. He’s my favorit t-shirt airbrush artist. Born in Ottawa, (Ontario) Canada in 1961.

1. Use the right Airbrush - This one’s easy. If you’re at all serious about wanting to airbrush t shirts, you have to get an IWATA Eclipse HP-BCS Airbrush. It’s a bottom-feed Airbrush, meaning the Airbrush paint bottle connects directly to the bottom of the Airbrush and is sucked up and pushed out the nozzle by a siphon created from the flowing air. Start with this Airbrush first and you’ll save yourself a lot of headache.
