Airbrush kits are great ways to get started because they have everything you’ll need. Most should have a powerful enough compressor to apply color evenly, but not so much that you’re uncomfortable using it. The hose should be long enough to allow you plenty of space both for decoration, and so you have more options for where to set the compressor.
Kits should have enough colors to allow you to experiment without having to invest in colors right away. It’s also a good idea if there’s a manual with techniques and tips if you’re a beginner.
