I bought this at COPICmarkerS.com - a period style and the service was great! This is the cheapest place that I found for this brand of compressor. So, for the pro's and con's.
- Small and light weight - 8.4 pounds
- Maintenance free
- Quiet - motor is 1/8 HP
- Long braided hose - almost 10'
- Really powerful for how petite it is - max pressure 80 psi
- No more buying air cans
Here are a few of my samples:The sky and grass are done with Copic Sketch markers in B00 Frost blue and G07 Nile green. I masked the mountain range when air brushing and used my Picasso stencil for the clouds. The Mountains are colored with Copic Ciao markers in Sand E33 and E30 Bisque. The snow is liquid applique. I stamped the forest of tree's in Palette Jardin Moss. All stamps are from Alota Stamps. This turned out to be my Father's Day card for my Dad this year.
This next example was done using a template. I cut out the star die onto a piece of acetate and air brushed it onto the white scalloped circle. Noticed I used the Copic Ciao marker in Y17. All I did was use a piece of square foam tape to position the marker correctly into the air grip. Sentiment is from The Angel Company.
I used the Copic black multi liner in .003 to add my dots around the star and scalloped edges.
This is going to be one item that I will get a lot of use out of! I think I got a pretty good deal - DH bought this for me so I wouldn't complain about the money he spent on a canoe. Who do you think will get more use out of their new toy? Definitely me! =) You can only use a canoe two, maybe three month's out of the year - I get to play all year long!
Hope you enjoyed my ramblings/review on the compressor. Have a great weekend everyone! I have a strong suspicion that I will be out on the water in a canoe, instead of air brushing!
