Airbrushing and Cosplay

airbrushing for cosplay

Airbrushing is a quick and effective way to layer paint onto armor, props, and other pieces for cosplay. The way it sprays gives you more control and makes weathering a surface easier and faster. Svetlana Quindt, a.k.a. Kamui Cosplay, pointed out some of the advantages of the technique in a recent post. She also noted that decent airbrush sets won’t necessarily break the bank. She scored a beginner’s set for $80 and because of airbrushing, she was able to paint her Dark Valkyrie Diana costume in a single night.

She goes over some tips in a recent post on Facebook, along with some suggestions on how to find an inexpensive airbrushing kit.

You can read more about Kamui’s airbrushing preferences and other painting techniques in her new ebook, Advanced Painting – Airbrush and Weathering. It’s available for purchase on her website.
