What is an airbrush?

History of the Airbrush

An airbrush is pretty much what it sounds like. In 1879 a man with the last name of Peeler created the first airbrush. The original airbrush was shaped more like a gun that was used to put paint on walls, etc. In 1893 Charles Burdick created an airbrush that had a more modern feel to it. Shaped more like a pen and looks very similar to airbrushes used today.
