A quick tutorial lesson on how to spray paint and airbrush art work on a denim jacket.  I just wanted to post some quick pics showing the airbrushing process and I will upload the video soon.  

Airbrushing on different surfaces and clothing can be very tricky but if you use the right steps it can be fun and done without all the stress. 

AIRBRUSH STEPS

1. before airbrushing the jean jacket I stretch the jacket nice and tight on the t shirt board and clamped it so the surface is nice and smooth. The I spray painted a layer of white as a base coat background for the image. 

you can use an opaque projector or free hand it, I like using a projector for portrait client work if I have to get it done quickly.

3. using a charcoal pencil I sketched the design and painted the eye area first, not the complete eye just the darkest spots.
