I ordered a airbrush kit for make-up the other day and I'm curious if any of you would know if I could use the same airbrush to do face-ups on dolls or do I need a different type of airbrush?

Educated guess on my part but I imagine it'd be more about the paint materials you're using rather than the type of airbrush. Make sure not to use makeup, oil based stuff and resin is a bad idea. I'm not sure if the air brush paint will gum up the makeup airbrush or not, or if it's strong enough to work in that medium. Let us know what you find out Smile

Thank you for commenting! I was thinking the same thing.

I'll try to research more and if I find out anything I'll post it here.

I'm hoping I will be able to use it for face-ups since I think I'd be better at using an airbrush then doing it by hand. Smile

I received my airbrush today. Once I get my doll in a month I'm going to try using paint that can be used on resin. I'm going to try to body blush. If it doesn't work I'll just buy another airbrush gun for around $50 that's on Leekeworld and use that with the compressor I have for my work on bjds. Smile
