About the Equipment

The kit includes a gravity-feed double-action starter airbrush with a .03 nozzle and a 7cc paint cup. There is an upgrade available to a Creos PS-289 .3mm airbrush if you are looking for equipment that is more professional grade. The compressor is a rechargeable battery-powered compressor by No-name brands, allowing 40-50 minutes of continuous spray, or about 1.5 to 2 hours of work time between recharges, and is new for 2021. It comes with an air hose to attach to your airbrush,  It fits any airbrush, any brand (Badger and Paasche need to be converted to 1/8" threading with an adapter), and you can carry it in your pocket! 

Paint includes 6 -1oz bottles of Createx illustration colors designed for airbrushing. Colors include Scarlet, Yellow, Red-violet, Cobalt Blue, Black and White. Upgrade option is available for the complete 16 color set, which includes White, Black, Yellow, Scarlet, Orange, Violet, Red Violet, Blue Violet, Viridian, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, Magenta, Burnt Umber, Sepia, Burnt Sienna, Moss Green, Transparent Base, and Reducer.

This kit includes training drills that you can follow at your own pace. You see the exercises as a first-person viewer. The camera is positioned in front of the instructor, not over the shoulder, so you will see the project develop as Dru's eyes would see it.

Video Access (granted at checkout) Includes access to an hour of intense instructional HD quality video

Why pay for video instruction when there is free online material?

Because this video contains content that is not found anywhere else. This is Dru's very own approach to airbrushing, and his techniques allow a much higher degree of outcome than traditional methods.

Besides, there is a huge amount of misinformation in free online airbrushing courses, which often advocate incorrect methods. Truly, you get what you pay for.

How long will I be able to view the video online?

Forever. You can watch this video again and again, but please bear in mind that this video is not transferable to other parties. It's yours alone to enjoy as often as you like.

Is the video downloadable?

No, but it is available to you online for you to access anytime, and anywhere.

This is a full workshop lesson from beginning to end - Just like being in the classroom with Dru teaching! You see the project as a first-person viewer. The camera is positioned in front of the instructor, not over the shoulder, so you will see the project develop as Dru's eyes would see it.
