I'm not sure how much an airbrush will cost, back in the 80's, it was like S$200 for a set, that was an 'astronomical amount' for me back then, now... hehehe... no need to think
It's not difficult to use the airbrush, the important part is in the mixing of the paint, must be 'just right', cannot be too diluted nor too thick.
I was checking out the shop in Century Sq. Think it was in the range of $100 plus to $420 like that.
