New painting station for Christmas

Greetings everyone, I hope everyone had a good Christmas.

For me, Christmas has brought on a bit of a new thing, as I had intended to use money I got for Christmas to partly pay for an airbrush and extraction chamber. However Santa decided to bring me them instead.

Since however it's a bit of a wieldy thing, I decided it was time for a proper permanent painting station, rather than the temporary affair I had, so after a bit of tidying in the spare room, and a trip to Ikea (2 trips, as they didn't have the desk I wanted, then after being told "They're coming in tomorrow" and my wife going back, only to be told "They're coming in tomorrow" again. Hence the second best was settled for.), I now have a proper painting station at last.

Behold it in all its painting station glory.

Hopefully this'll mean I can get a bit more done, instead of having to pack things away at time and then get it all back out again. The airbrush also means I can work on some bigger projects I've been thinking of, without losing the will to live having to paint it all by brush.

Now I just need to figure out how to use it, so probably lots of videos on youtube for me.

Hope everybody else had a great Christmas, and a good New Year when it comes.

  4. Nice one Ace. I need to put up a permanent painting station as I have to pack up my airbrush and extraction cabinet after I've used it. However, a garage conversion in the New Year should help!

  5. I desperately need a permanent painting station. I had to give mine up after I had to give the extra room to my husbands surgical bed after his last neck surgery. One day I tell myself, one day.

    Congratulations on the airbrush. I really would love to learn how to paint with one.
