    Hello all
    Im korey from Massachusetts
    So far I'm a self taught (you tube watcher) airbrush wannabe artist. I have a background in art with oil paintings,pencil drawings water colors....I have some art classes under my belt as well. My ultimate goal is to change careers from flooring into custom painting. Only been messing around with the airbrush for about 2yrs.
    I have a iwata compressor and 2 iwata brushes. My go to is the eclipse for now but I also have a hi-line that i bought used that needs repairs.

    and shipping it to me in Australia would just about kill the deal, but I can work wonders with some chicken wire, polystyrene and some render !!

    A theme park or similar would pay roughly 6-8k for a head that size, w no smoke. I'd start off w styrofoam too. Hehe

    piece like that can bring money back very fast. Especially if you sell food and drink. You can sell Jacky the dragon hot burgers!

    Closest I've done to that was an 18ft crocodile that was mounted to underwater rails for a Peter pan themed ride or area or something.
