General Info and History of Airbrushing

Jul 15, 2008
The history of airbrushes is as old as the root lies in the year of 1893, which is far before the year when the world war took place. It was not exactly the current model but somewhat similar to it which was invented by Charles Burdick. Then gradually the usage of airbrush gained popularity and during the 1920s this particular device was used for retouching the photographs.

In fact by then people had become aware of the fact that airbrush can give the ideal coloring effect. Later on with the advancement of technology the models of airbrushes were upgraded. They started using it for advertisements.

The first big company who adored the usage of airbrush for commercial purpose was "Walter Gropius Bauhaus group of Germany in the year of 1919. This company was dealing in fine arts. Then the use of airbrushes in the advertising industry became quite popular around the globe. In fact they became an essential tool in 1930 as the mass production of different stuffs started.
During the world war the airbrushes were used for painting the posters. They started painting the cars with the help of an airbrush. The most famous users of airbrush are the Walt Disney studios. They used the airbrushes for painting the characters, backgrounds etc for the animations.

After that the art directors of movies became conscious about the fact that the airbrushes are very helpful when it comes to making the sets and coloring them. They also started using it in the painting industry and some of the best paintings were made with the airbrushes.

But still this tool has not received proper recognition as a tool to make the best quality fine arts products. This clearly accounts for the fact that airbrush is not a modern invention and the future seems to be really bright for this device.

At present the usage of airbrushes has become wide spread. There are two specific types of airbrushes available in the market. The one that comes with single action facility is an ideal choice for the users who are trying out airbrush painting for the first time. They are reasonably priced. The other type of airbrush is the double actioned ones.

You can use an airbrush for making interesting tattoos on the body. In fact the airbrush make ups are also popular among the women. Often the airbrushes are used to make nail decorations. But still they are not popular as the fine arts tool.
