    vFan Airbrush

    The first, and the industry’s most innovative airbrush that turns into a air gun. The vFan is used for precision paint and material dispensing, touch-ups and surface repairs, surface preparation and curing.

     

    FAQS

    Why use fan tips?

    The fan tip attachment is designed like a paint gun for painting cars. The tip is designed to give the user a better, more even result over large areas. It can be turned in any angle to give you the most control (up to 3 inches).

    Why use the standard vFan Airbrush tips?

    The standard tips are used for more precise control and to achieve very fine lines up to an inch.

    What PSI does an vFan Airbrush need to work?

    It depends on how thin the paint is: Thinner paints use 30 PSI and thicker paints use up to 80 PSI.

    Can I use a vFan Airbrush with a compressor?

    Yes

    Is a vFan Airbrush safe to use indoors?

    Yes, as long as it is a well-ventilated area. Using a mask is always recommended.

    What is the best method to use the vFan Airbrush System With 150 feet of energy?

    The best method is what we call the 30-3 rule. Use the vFan Airbrush for 30 seconds continuously and stop for 3 minutes so the 150 Feet of Energy does not get too cold. While waiting 3 minutes, shaking the can helps warm the propellant faster and keeps your PSI at a proper range of 15-65 PSI.

    What can I spray with the vFan Airbrush?

    Almost anything (oils, liquids or paints) thinned to the manufacturers’ recommended thinning guidelines. With regards to viscosity, keep the liquid a bit thicker than milk.

    Is the vFan Airbrush safe for food?

    Yes, when using the vFan Airbrush with a air compressor that has proper filtration. Most food additives are fda approved, so it is safe for spraying food as long as the product you are spraying is also safe. We don’t recommend using 150 Feet of Energy when spraying foods.

    How thick or thin of a line can I expect to get with the vFan Airbrush?

    With the vFan Airbrush, you can expect up to a 2-3 inch fan spray pattern. With the standard tips you can expect hair thin lines and up to 1-inch round thick lines.

    How loud is the the vFan Airbrush system?

    The 150 Feet of Energy power source is practically silent. The only sound that can be heard is the air coming out of the tip of the airbrush, which is a soft hiss.

    REVIEWS

    As an illustrator I've used many air brushes. Setting up the compressor, the moisture trap for the compressor and working with the noise of the compressor motor isn't always fun or relaxing. This little air brush kit uses compressed air from a can so you can work in a whisper quiet environment. Set up and clean up is super easy. The effects are great! Depending on the needle and tip you use you can get really detailed accuracy. Very little overspray and no sputter or moisture issues from a mechanical compressor. It's ideal for small scale applications. What's the coolest is the whole assembly is portable. It's not easy to move a compressor that needs power. But because it's an aerosol can you can take this outside to do murals, vehicles, planters... there's no limit to your imagination. Love this air brush!!


    I tried it on my garage doors with an excellent results. It is very easy to use and clean and most importantly no efforts at all.


    You never realize how much you need something like this, until you start looking. Take a look around your home and look at all the chips, scratches, worn paint, etc. Look at all the paint flaws. Now, you can make your house as close to perfect, without the hassle of toting a compressor around. The airbrush kit works great! I simply used a piece of cardboard to block areas where I didn't want the spray to hit. I filled the unit with paint, hooked up the pressurized air can and off to work I went. I did have to fill in the damaged areas, which I did with 5 minute mud. I did a light sand and tried to keep the texture in the non damaged areas (by wiping the excess mud off with a damp sponge). I first hit the area with Kilz to prime the surface. Then I hit it with paint - super easy to do and it looks great. I went though each room, cleaning up paint errors from the past and fixing damaged spots. So much better than a paint brush, keeps the texture, no streaks, blends well and easy to use. I'm also impressed how long the cans of air last. I highly recommend this airbrush kit!
