Airbrush Nails Course
This Airbrush Nails course is exciting and spectacular. throughout this course students will create 20 stunning designs which covers the basic techniques required to design your own works of art.
Part 1, 'Foundation'
You're told how to promote airbrushing services, how to make money doing airbrush nails and about the tools and products you'll be using.
Part 2, 'Essential Techniques'
First, you learn how the airbrush and compressor works. Then you'll learn how to control the airbrush and the paint depth by carefully airbrushing the lines and shapes on progress card 1. Your hand will be shaky at first and the paint may not go where you want it to. Your lines might be wiggly and uneven, but don't worry, after a few minutes you'll get the hang of it!
You won't be surprised to know we've designed a progress card for you to practise this essential technique. There are 8 rows of nail shapes and we show you how to spray blends, overlaps, step and repeat and other fascinating techniques.
You've learnt the basics; you can control the airbrush, compressor, airflow, paints and stencils, so now it's time to create some real nail designs on nails.
Using these techniques and your imagination you now will be able to improvise thousands of new and exciting designs. The course even includes a 'Salon Display' card to show off your designs to your clientel.
