I bought my airbrush at Michael's craft store.Every week Michaels and AC Moore craft stores has a 40% discount coupon in the Sunday newspapers.I got a $ 120 airbrush for $72.The only other thing you'll need is a compressor or propellent.These stores sell both.Propellent is just compressed air in a can ,a cheap alternative to buying a compressor....I still make a lot of my plugs with spray paint,it just alot easier and I think they'll catch fish just as well as the plugs I airbrushed.

In my opinion I would NOT suggest buying an airbrush and propell (compressed air). Those cans of propel are expensive, dont last long and with prolonged use (a few minutes) the can will freeze. When this happens the air pressure lowers. You need to keep them in warm water to prevent this from happening. IF you HAVE to have an airbrush (so you can SAVE MONEY, LMAO) then just save a little more money and buy a small compressor. I've got a small craftsman that works great. You can also buy "airbrush pumps" but they are roughly the same price as a compressor and they have to run the whole time your painting. The sound would drive me nuts.
Where does the "so I can save money" come from?
I've spent well over 4K so far on my plug building habit!
Most all the plugs that I have built have been donated, Ho'd, or given away. So it aint me that's saving money
