Having only one airbrushing technique is like driving on only one road; it limits the places you can go. This book by famed custom painter JoAnn Bortles gives you the airbrushing tools to take your art just about anywhere.

Her book is an ideal guide for airbrush painters seeking to expand their skills, and for readers of Bortles’ earlier book who are hungry for more.
