I want to start custom painting bike frames. Like, really custom painting bike frames (ghost flames ETC).

What sort of compressor do you need for that? is it small enough to hide when you are not using it?

What keyboard is that in the background? Looks like Corsair keys but the wrist rest doesn't look like Corsair at all

Depends on the size of the coverage and the detail you want.

You will need a good quality compressor for that, and over here they run about 700-800 quid.

Plus you are going to want a larger airbrush, preferably trigger design like this and a much larger pot for mixing and spraying most likely top fed/gravity fed. Compressors have a rule I believe, 30mins on 15mins off or something like that. 30mins of usage, and 15mins of cooldown.

And those kinds of compressors are not huge, but not small either. Maybe 30cmx30cmx40-50. Depends on quality. Im not the best for advice here as I still see myself as a novice, but youtube has a plethora of really damn good spraying and buying advice.

But for detailing etc. This airbrush I just bought is one of the best there is. Just google reviews on the Eclipse HP CS (larger cup) or HP BS (Small cup) HP = High preceision

For detailing you want low psi, so make sure the compressor has good variation. Im guessing for you, you want a range 1-60psi for large frames. If its just detailing you want then a 1-40 should be your go to point. For miniature painting, 1-20psi is enough.

Brand wise for airbrushes, I would not use anything other than, hard&steener, Iwata, or badger. With those brands, you can often use heavier paint, or heavier pigment and maybe even allow some sparkle thrown in which would clog most other brands.




And its a K95 keyboard. I had it on sale for 60% off so my Little ducky panda keyboard will have to wait.

Nah I literally want one just like you have. It's not for doing the paint dude. I will use cans for that. It's for flames and skulls etc. Which are all small (given it's a bike frame).

Being ghost flames it needs to be super low pressure too, so the paint is transparent.

Oh and cheers, it gives me a starting point

you might want a 0.2nozzle then, this one is a 0.35. Mine is a really good one though so you might be good with this

Forgot to mention the Corsair H115i Pro XT I got last month developed a weird ticking sound, I sent it back, Got a refund and bought the NH-D15 Chromax Pure Black, Performance has been amazing, Much better than the Corsair A500 and surprisingly a degree or 2 better than the AIO once heat soak set in, Now just to get the little aesthetic Chromax covers.

Been considering the D15 as my H100i has started developing a weird issue with heating up since I cleaned the machine out and summer's set in. Sodding thing blows the fans at max when the coolant reaches 40ºC and keeps going down and up like a chav revving their Corsa
