If you have an empty garage full of unnecessary junk, or an old car, it is time to think about using it as an airbrush area. The garage should be cleaned, as unnecessary dust will affect the quality of your drawings. Unnecessary junk should be gotten rid of or tamped in a far corner. If the old car that is in the garage is no longer useful to anyone, then by selling it, you can get the necessary start-up capital, which can be used to purchase the necessary equipment for airbrushing.
Veiling the walls of the garage masking shades for car painting can get rid of excess dust. The shades can cover the floor. It is perfect if the garage is heated. If the heating is a furnace, it is necessary to observe safety precautions and not cover the furnace walls.
To heat the room with maximum efficiency, you need to take care to avoid heat leakage through the cracks of the gate and other openings. To do this, you can find an old banner or film and hang them over the gate. Excessive gaps in the walls of the garage can be caulked with assembly foam.
Just as with the organization of the working area for airbrushing in the living room, the garage will need a table and racks for storing supplies and equipment. Good lighting also needs to be provided. If the surface to be painted is small, a daylight lamp above the table will be enough.
Room (airbrush: working area)
Premises for airbrushing can be divided into two categories: for training and professional work. Whereas the classroom can be a living room or a balcony, a garage or an enclosed space, well ventilated and heated, will be needed for business.
This division is due to the materials used and their requirements for production conditions.
Non-toxic paints (gouache, acrylic, etc.), diluted with water or alcohol, can be used indoors. All you need is an airbrush and a compressor.
The canvas can do album pages, Watman, which can be attached to a fiberboard sheet or plywood. This approach will be very economical, and the initial purchase of equipment and supplies may require a minimum of financial resources. Even better, if you can borrow a compressor from an acquaintance.
To separate the work area for airbrushing in a living room, you can use
foil mounted on the ceiling and walls. As such, a film can go masking shades for painting a car. Their size is about 4 x 5 m. It cost about 50 rubles. Find them in stores selling products for car painting and paint picks. It is worth buying a respirator if it is impossible to create a working area in the living space. Even if you work with non-toxic paints, they create a lot of dust (overspray) if you paint intensively, but it is not recommended to breathe it. The best respirator to buy is described in the article Respirator for airbrushing.
To create comfortable conditions for painting, you will need good light, in the living room a table lamp will be enough. For a good perception of color, they advise using daylight lamps. From my experience, I can say that when you look at an image under this light, you can distinguish many shades, which will help you reproduce the drawn image quite accurately. To see for yourself, try looking at the same image from a magazine or a photograph under incandescent light and then under a daylight lamp.
As a working area in the living room can fit an ordinary desk. Over time, you will start to purchase various supplies for airbrushing, and there should be racks or shelves near the workplace on which you can place materials and equipment.
