So i love to draw, paint and just generally be creative and I have been wondering as of late how hard it is to learn how to Airbrush and/or Silkscreen...SO my question is...do any of you do either? How hard is it to learn? How expensive was it for you to get started? Got any tips or advice to give/share?

ok first of all i'll answer your question regarding airbrush,learning to handle it is simple, juz like drawing a perfect sphere...especially if you have a art enthusiasm you can learn it in matter of weeks of practice..or less...remember that in airbrush your rendering objects...not drawing it(the real pain is when doing some lettering{alphabets and numbers} which you need more practice to it..you really have to spend time),regarding expenses...you juz need to invest in a good airbrush and reliable air-compressor,paints are accessable anyway especially if your living near the art or school supplies store, silkscreen -some schools offers courses to it in art class and some seminars,if not well its easy you need cutting skills and perseverance for these,need to learn basic color theory well be good..and bottomline its not that costly..like airbrush

You can get an air brushing kit at an art supply store. Some of them start off around $25.00 but you will need to buy cans of compressed air instead of using a compressor for air power. I had one years ago and it was nice to have but as I said, I did have to stay stocked up on the cans of air. Silk screening kits cost a little more but you can offset the cost by making shirts or bumper stickers.
