The Omni Matrix Airbrush


click to purchase


I recommend this airbrush to all beginners because of it’s patented ability to quickly switch between gravity feed and siphon feed.
It’s basically two types of airbrushes in one. Gravity feed is best for learning.
Siphon feed is better for speed but can introduce more clogs and maintenance issues because of the addition of the paint bottle.
I always recommend gravity feed first and then work your way up to siphon feed. Get 15% off with promo code ROUSTAN15



The Omni 3000 Airbrush


click to purchase


This has been my go to airbrush for many years. Not much more to say. I recommend it to intermediate level airbrush artists and above. Get 15% off with promo code ROUSTAN15
