How Does an Airbrush Work?

Have you looked at an airbrush and wondered, “How does that thing work?” Well, you aren't alone. Airbrushes are a bit more complicated to describe in how it gets the paint to shoot out of the tool. Essentially, an airbrush works because air moves through it extremely fast, which allows for a suction to be created and thus paint is pushed out due to these circumstances. When the paint is traveling through the airbrush, it mixes with air and then shoots out in very minute drops onto the surface that is being painted.
