it works but I was afraid of running out of air and the paint drying in the brush. Then it would be no good. I just got an air compressor today for my b-day. go on ebay, you can get a compressor with a dual action airbrush for $88. It is from air brush city. they have warranties and everything. I recommend a compressor.

the spare tire thing works somewhat. if any of you have ever had an old volkswagen, you know how the windshield squirters work. they have a hose that runs to the valve stem of the spare tire, and that where it gets its constant pressure to spray. then your spare tire runs flat, but oh well

If you use co2 then you have to make sure that you buy a moisture trap. Thats the only drawback is you might be working on something and some water will shoot out and fuck up whatever you are working on...
I was talking to a homie doing t-shirts at the swap meet and he pointed out that since co2 is a dry gas a moisture trap was not needed. You do need some pressure regulators though. I have tried the cans of air and they suck because they can never keep a constant pressure. They cost a grip too.
