Oh my goodness, Judi! I'm a little late looking at this thread, but I am no less awestruck than the others. You are a master at airbrushing, and the before and after shots really show such detail and transformation. Beautiful work! :clap:
You mentioned that you don't feel paint on her fur, only the fur itself. If it's not too forward of me, I'd like to ask you what sort of paint you are using. I don't have an airbrush and am scared to try one, but I think I could use a paintbrush and my fingers... I only recently (last time I worked on my bears, maybe a year ago) started using Berol Prismacolor pencils to shade my guys' faces.
Hi Judi, love your airbrush work! I have been airbrushing cats lately and I'm having trouble with blacks fading to gray. I love the forgiveness airbrushing allows and how you can just start going at it! I started using plain black acrylic paints but they faded after just a couple days. Then I used a brown base under the black, that helped but wasn't permanent. I tried adding India ink on top, and that has been more successful, but not totally permanent.
I know in other posts you talk about very thin layers, how do you keep the spray light when doing such detailed work?
