Airbrush How-To with Mickey Harris (Air Skool) (Paperback)
With over 35 years of experience under his belt, Mickey Harris is the ideal author to share with new and experienced airbrush artists what he's learned in a lifetime of airbrush work.
Harris' new book starts with a little history, how he and a small group of his peers began to use the airbrush without any masks to paint T-shirts, motorcycles, hot rods and human bodies. Next comes Harris' take on what makes a good airbrush, followed by some of the strokes that make up the foundation of any good airbrush painting. The chapter titled: How to Make a Living with an Airbrush, is Mickey's version of Business 101 for airbrush artists.
The rest of the book is given over to 12 airbrushing sequences. Each one starts with a sketch and ends with a completed mural or graphic painted on a panel, a truck or maybe a hot rod. Mickey's captions explain each image: how he mixes paint to achieve the best viscosity, how the airbrush itself is adjusted, and how he blends the colors to create those beautiful fades.
Over 400 images spread across 144 pages, with Mickey's first person captions, help make this book the next best thing to a one-on-one seminar with Mickey in his own shop.
