Extremely thin with low edge (no paint build-up) and easy release from painted surface-no adhesive transfer, residue or paint de-lamination.
Also performs very well with low VOC solvent based paints.
La Rouge Proband is a new generation fine-line tape, specifically designed for use with all waterborne paint systems, including airbrush paints.
This is the first and only hand-held device that is specifically designed for repairing bent and damaged airbrush fluid needles. The concept and design was created by Chad Elliot especially for the airbrushing community. SharpenAir works by utilizing multiple angles allowing your damaged needle to be straightened efficiently and with precision each and every time while maintaining its factory angle. There are four channels that are uniquely angled to do the work for you. The sharpener stones are made up of varying grit and work together to provide you with a consistently perfect finish.
Although the SharpenAir™ is quick and easy to use it is helpful to read our instructions before your first use to ensure proper sharpening of your airbrush fluid needle.
SharpenAir contains four sharpening stones in its main compartment area where the logo is embossed. There are four "slots" or "channels" which run from the base of the sharpener vertically to the end of the sharpener.
Working your needle from right to left:
Step 1: Place the needle in the slot (far right) allowing the needle to reach the end of the slot. With minimal pressure begin rotating the needle in a clockwise direction; about 10-15 revolutions. Pull the needle out and check the tip. You may need to repeat this step a few times to achieve the desired straightness and/or until the burr is removed.
Step 2: This slot is at less of an angle than Step 1 and uses a less aggressive stone. Using the same amount of revolutions as step 1 (10-15), this step eases the angle even further in order to reach stock angle. This process will also help in removing some of the step one sand scratches. Step 3 and Step 4 are designed utilizing the same angle.
Step 3: contains a sanding stone consisting of a lower grit to quickly reshape the entire cone if needed. This step is optional. Smaller repairs may be completed at Step 2, however, a more damaged needle may utilize all steps in order to be completely sharpened.
Step 4: contains a higher grit sharpening stone and will further sand out the scratches from Step 3.

This specially designed polishing pad is used as a final step to the SharpenAir repair process. These pads assist in removing any micro-scratches that may remain on the surface of the needle in order to prevent dry-tip.

The AEC Air Eraser is a versatile instrument that can delicately erase color errors or act as an etching tool when precision material control is required. It is used by Airbrush Artists to prepare glass and hard surfaces for painting, hobbyists and manufacturers to clean jewelry and fine parts, to remove discolouration such as rust and corrosion without marring the surface, to etch decorative patterns or monograms on glass. It is used by lithographers to highlight half-tones and erase defects without marring the surface or leaving a smudge. Extensively used by model railroaders for weathering rail cars and accessories.Air Eraser Kit includes:

Pearlescent and Metallic Colors are pearl base coats. For graphics and base coat application, they’re best applied as a mid-coat over a color-keyed AutoBorne Sealer base.
Start with a color-keyed AutoBorne Sealer for best orientation. Auto Air Pearlescent & Metallic Colors lay down flat with an even pearlescent orientation when applied over a color-keyed base color as opposed to a white or black base. By color – keying with the base color, less material is required which reduces the build-up of pearlescent that creates a mottled, splotchy finish. Using minimal amounts of pearlescent is key to achieving an even pearlescent finish. It is also important to allow for adequate drying time in between coats of Pearlescent & Metallic Colors so that each coat lays down in an even pattern. If the underlying coat is still tacky, the next coat’s pearlescent will accumulate along the underlying coat’s pearlescent pattern and develop channels of pearl which will create a mottled appearance. Color-keying the Pearlescent Colors with the underlying base color saves not only material, but allows for quicker drying times due to less material per coat and an even orientation in the finish.
On average 2–3 coats are required for complete coverage. Orientation will benefit from a drop-coat after full coverage has been achieved. Reduce psi by 7–10 psi and apply a single, cross pattern coat.
Allow each coat ample time to dry. When the pearlescent powder in the underlying coat is truly dry, the next, wet coat’s pearlescent powder will not accentuate the underlying pattern resulting in “channeling” of pearlescent in the finish. Applying a well-orientated coat in an even and consistent spray pattern that is properly atomized is essential to a achieving a great finish. Using with a color-keyed AutoBorne Sealer makes this much easier when painting helmets, bikes, cars and any large paint job.
Pearlescent and Metallic Colors are best applied with a large tip-sized airbrush or spray-gun.

Since the discontinuance of Crescent 9208 and 9218, there has been no paper or board that can tolerate the blade/Scratching technique without disturbing the fibers of the paper. Maple is pleased to announce that the Blair paper specifically made for the airbrush that allows scratching and erasing for special effects, is now available to the Canadian Airbrusher without having to "cross border shop". The best news is that this paper is double sided.
Please note: While this paper is designed for use with the blade; however, improper, repeated or excessive application of pressure with the blade can and will cause damage. Exercise caution. Being a non-absorbent surface, it is recommended that you wash the paper with a gentle soap to remove any grease or oil from your fingers. Different paints have different adhesive characteristics, so it is advised that you test your paint to determine its resilience to errant scratches.
Simply the best modification you can make to your Iwata airbrush.
Stock air valve springs have too much tension. Replacing the original spring with a new BLAIR SoftSpring will make it much easier to control, as well as reduce finger fatigue.
The BLAIR SoftSpring, air valve replacement spring, for Iwata airbrushes was designed for the Iwata Custom Micron B/SB models. Since its development it has proven effective in virtually all models of Iwata airbrushes.
The BLAIR SoftSpring makes the downward pressure on your airbrush trigger (Main Lever) nearly effortless. This is good news because it reduces tension and fatigue that so often limits the artist's control of the airbrush, especially when attempting fine details. When coupled with a side feed airbrush such as the Iwata CM-SB your BLAIR SoftSpring will facilitate the hand position that Dru Blair uses and recommends for the highest level of airbrush control.
Dru Blair Recommends that Airbrush Super Lube (the blue stuff in a tube often shipped with new airbrushes) should be avoided. Use of this product often leaves a sticky residue and if used around the trigger pin/air valve you may have to replace the o-ring.
While the original air valve spring may exert enough force to compensate and push through the gumminess your new SoftSpring is not designed to work under such conditions. The extra force this would require would negate the whole idea of lessening the spring tension in the first place.
A symptom of this build up is that it may create enough additional friction as to prevent the trigger from returning to the air-off position once your new SoftSpring is installed. We have found cleaning the O-ring to offer only temporary relief for a few days, and at other times, only minutes. Replacement of the O-ring is the only way to eliminate the buildup.
