First time posting, very excited by the content and enthusiasm of the SWSCA community. I watched Mr. Bryan's very informative and entertaining course, "Plastic Bag Puppet Monster", as well as "Plastic Bag Technology", and I'm gearing up to make some test effects for a short movie.
Copic's marker airbrushes require you to purchase their pressurized air canisters, which are a staggering $20 a pop. Mr. Bryan mentioned in one of the courses that he had the shop whip him up a custom marker airbrush which presumably allows him to avoid purchasing Copic's products and just use regular markers.
I'd like to try the same customization. Has anyone implemented a workaround like this (and if so, would you be willing to share instructional steps?). Or perhaps there is a way I can relay this question to Mr. Bryan?
Not looking to undermine Copic, but rather, just looking for an alternate solution that doesn't involve repeatedly buying canisters. I have a rather basic gravity feed airbrush, "Master Gravity Feed Dual-action Airbrush, 1/5HP Single Piston", in case that offers any additional insight (link below), but I'd rather upgrade to a nicer unit than spend the same money on canisters.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001TO578Q/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Thanks for your time!
