Managed to pick up a load of nozzles from Hobbycraft a couple of years ago in a sale so the Aztec will carry on for a long time yet. The Aztek Master Professional Airbrush Set is ideal for general and pinpoint detail work, and gives you a modern, heavy duty airbrush system that provides both precision and durability.


Orders will only be dispatched once payment has been received. When it worked, it worked well, when it didn’t, there was nothing I could ever do to make it work except clean it and put it away, then try again months later.

I use my Aztek for mostly acrylic paints and have not used much in the way of “hot” solvents or cleaning fluids on it and it works for me.

I don’t know the design history of the Aztek line of airbrushes but I think they wanted to rethink airbrush design and did a fine job of it.

Menu Search Basket 0. A traditional metal bodied airbrush will gladly be immersed in a bath of cleaning fluids with little or no problem as long as rubber o seals are taken into account.

The whole process is so quick that I spent about 30 minutes to test all the nozzle tips with base coat included. So if you drop it azyek smashes on it’s nose.

When the Aztek is immersed in cleaning fluids much past the metal ferrule in a “hot” cleaning fluid it will affect the plasticizers in that air tube and will cause a778 to deteriorate and eventually fail.

In the box you can find:.

For example difference between acrylic and non acrylic nozzle tip even finish of nozzle tip for acrylic paint helps to prevent clogging and gives it the right air flow.

A quick search will give you some clues http: I have four nozzles,fine,hi-flow,medium,splatter,3 sizes of cup Pm me your email and I’ll send you my work done with an Aztec Finescale header quote When a traditional brush user does this it forces paint and cleaning fluid past the “needle seal” in an Aztek airbrush.

Aztek Airbrush Review (7778)

I think that the final result depends more on the artist, his talent and skills he has than on the tools he uses. And the magic wheel for switching the action regime. I think the mindset of the designers was to design an airbrush that was easy to use by anyone, even those who had no experience.

It was fine as a starter airbrush for me but I’m glad I moved on.
