Best Airbrush Kits Reviews & Comparisons

1.Iwata Airbrush Deluxe Set


Iwata Deluxe Airbrush Set is probably the best airbrush kit in terms of overall quality build. This airbrush kit comes with the  one of my favorite airbrush, the Iwata Eclipse HP-CS . This Airbrsuh kit is the top choice when considering an Iwata Airbrush Kit. The Eclipse is great because this airbrush’s high flow allows it to atomize a wider variety of liquids with less need for reducing or thinning. The Eclipse HP-CS offers a broad spray range, as compared to other airbrushes, where it is possible to achieve a controlled fine line to controlled wide spray. The Iwata HP-CS airbrush has a generous 0.24 oz / 7 ml fluid cup with lid that is ideal for color mixing.

This Iwata airbrush kit  comes with the Iwata IS 850 Smart Jet compressor – the most popular choice for low to medium pressure applications. Iwata Smart Jet features auto-shut-off technology. The preset air flow produces a working pressure of 20-25 PSI and the bleed valve may be used to lower the pressure. Built-in airbrush holder and Iwata airbrush hose included. This kit comes with 10 each 1oz bottles of Com Art Colours – half transparent and half opaque, 8oz bottle of Medea Airbrush Cleaner, a Pistol Grip Moisture Filter, an Artool Freehand Airbrush Template (FH-2 SP), and 2 How-to DVDs: Airbrush from Scratch and an Artool Template Instruction video. The Iwata Deluxe kit is one of the most complete Kits from Iwata and makes an amazing gift for the airbrush enthusiast in your life.

Pros
  • The Eclipse HP CS is one of my favorite Airbrush (see Iwata Eclipse HP CS review)
  • Comes with the Compact and Quiet Iwata Smart Jet IS 850 Compressor.
  • Overall great quality build Iwata airbrush kit.
  • Includes 10 bottles of 1oz Com Art Colours (Opaque & Transparent)
  • Airbrush from Scratch DVD
  • Includes the  Artool Template Instruction DVD
  • Include the Artool Freehand Airbrush Template, FH-2 S
Cons

  • Probably not the bets airbrush paint


 

2. Paasche TG-SET Talon/ Master TC-20T airbrush kit

The Paaasche Airbrush kit is a great kit. It comes with the Paasche TG-SET “Talon” Gravity Feed, internal mix  airbrush , a real high end airbrush with a .38mm needle which delivers the highest level of detail and control. The Paasche Talon has a rather large .4 ounce cup size.

This airbrush set  comes also with the Master TC20-T airbrush compressor, a compressor with a 0.92 gallon (3.5 liters) tank that will help smoothing out the pulsations from the single piston compressor and also help deliver a constant air pressure. The Master TC20-T has an air regulator with gauge and air filter. It is a light-weight, quiet and compact compressor, easy to carry thanks to the carrying handle.

This is another great airbrush kit with an all purpose airbrush at a very good price as well. I would have liked to get the  .66mm tip included with this airbrush bundle, it would have been the perfect beginner kit but you can still buy it separately if you feel like it.

Pros
  • The Talon is a quality airbrush with smooth trigger action.
  • Master TC20-T compressor with tank.
  • Air Pressure Regulator with Gauge that provide precise airflow adjustment
  • Water trap filter that provide clean and dry air
  • The Talon is 100% made in the USA
Con
  • Would have liked to have the two extra tips for the talon: .25mm and .66mm

3. IWATA HP-CS Eclipse\Master TC-20T Airbrush Kit

This Iwata HP-CS\Master TC-20T airbrush set  is great airbrush bundle. The Iwata Eclipse HP-CS is a dual-action gravity feed Airbrush with a 0.35mm needle/nozzle and a 1/3 ounce. funnel shaped gravity fluid cup along with a 6′ Braided Hose.

It comes also with the Master TC20-T airbrush compressor, a compressor with a 0.92 gallon (3.5 liters) tank that will help smoothing out the pulsations from the single piston compressor and also help deliver a constant air pressure. The Master TC20-T has an air regulator with gauge and air filter. It is a light-weight, quiet and compact compressor, easy to carry thanks to the carrying handle.

There is also a LOT of extra airbrush equipment in this airbrush set, which is great especially if you are a beginner. They will make your life that bit easier.

4. Badger Patriot 105\Badger TC910 Aspire PRO Airbrush Kit

The Badger airbrush multiple airbrush starter system features everything the new and aspiring airbrush artist requires to successfully start airbrushing.

This Badger airbrush kit comes two airbrushes: The Badger Patriot 105 airbrush, a dual action, internal mix gravity feed Airbrush with a   .50 millimeter needle/nozzle for spraying all types of mediums, inks, dyes, watercolors, acrylics, enamels, lacquers, glazes, latex, Air-Opaque, Air-Tex, MODELflex, Totally Tattoo, and Totally Tan colors.

The Badger Patriot 105 (check my Badger Patriot review), American Made, really is an high quality build airbrush at a very competitive price. Very easy to clean and disassemble  , it is the ideal airbrush for beginners but it will also suit more advanced users. Very versatile tool, the Badger Patriot 105 will suit most project works, those that require large surface coverage but also be suited for projects with more fine details.

It comes also with the Badger 350 , which is a quality build single action airbrush. It feels comfortable, light weight and is really easy to control.The Badger 350 is also very easy to clean, which is always a plus.

The compressor is the Badger TC910 aspire Pro, a 1/6 horsepower, on-off switch compressor with a maxium pressure of 57 psi (4 bar). It has a one gallon (3 liter) built-in tank, built-in moisture filter and  2 airbrush holders.The Aspire Pro has a sturdy metal outer case with handle,which make it easy to carry. It has an adjustable air regulator, and pressure gauge and a built-in moisture filter. Really a great airbrush compressor.

Additionally, this system includes a complete maintenance pack and a needle lubricant for easy airbrush cleaning and maintenance.

This Badger bundle is really one of the best airbrush kit around, no doubt about that. Ideal if you want to start airbrushing

Pros
  • Badger Patriot 105 is a great airbrush (see my Badger Patriot review)
  • The compressor Badger TC910 Aspire pro with tank is a solid com
  • The maintenance pack
  • Good value for money
  • Ideal for everyone from beginners to experts
Cons
  •  I honestly can’t find any negative points

 5. MASTER G22 Airbrush/TC-20T Air Compressor

The Master Airbrush Kit is probably the most affordable airbrush kit you can get.

This airbrush bundle comes with the Master G22 airbrush, a Chinese made airbrush made bu TCP Global. The Master G22 is versatile gravity feed airbrush with a 1/3 oz. cup size, with a  a 0.3mm tip. You can buy the 0.2 and 0.5mm nozzles and needles are also available to buy.

With this, you will also get the Master TC-20T high performance single-piston airbrush air compressor with air storage tank and a air filter / pressure regulator with a dial to make it easy to adjust the air pressure. Also you will get a 6 foot braided Airbrush air hose. The tank is essential with an airbrush, it eliminates any pulsing and cools the air so the moisture separator will work better.

Now the G22 airbrush on its own would probably cost you  less than 30$, and obviously at that price, you can’t really expect the same quality built than an Iwata Eclipse HP-CS or a Patriot 105 for instance.

But nevertheless, this airbrush kit would be perfect if you are in a budget and want to start airbrushing. For a beginner I would advice to get the.5 needle, nozzle, cap kit for the Master G22 Airbrush, that would be a bit easier to use, a bit be more forgiving for thinning than the 0.3 mm the kit is equipped with by default.

Kit includes:

  • Professional Master Airbrush Multi-Purpose Airbrushing System with a Model G22 Multi-Purpose High Performance Airbrush with a 1/3 oz. Gravity Fluid Cup and a 0.3mm Tip
  • Professional Master TC-20T high performance single-piston airbrush air compressor with air storage tank and a air filter / pressure regulator
  • Compressor Provides “Air-On-Demand” and the Air Storage Tank allows it to be Delivered with Constant Pressure & Zero Pulsation
  • Versatile system is ideal for multiple uses: hobbies, crafts, fine art, nail art, temporary tattoos, cake decorating, auto-motorcycle graphics & more!
  • Also includes a Bonus How-To-Airbrush Guide Booklet by Master Airbrush
Pros
  • Great price
  • Master TC20-T compressor is great
Cons
  • Master G22 Airbrush quality built
  • Master G22 Airbrush a bit tricky to clean.
  • The booklet “How to Airbrush” is not great
