BARTSHARP 116B Airbrush - Perfect For Cake Decoration
We have taken all that we have learned from recent years and teamed up with a top manufacturer, highly endorsed by international airbrush artist Chuck Bauman, to create our own brand and extensive range of airbrushes.
The BARTSHARP Pistol Grip 116B Airbrush is top gravity feed with a single variable action.
It comes fitted with a quality 0.5mm needle, nozzle and nozzle cap. This set up is for general purpose spraying and will allow you to create a hair line spray width up to approximately 28mm. However it can also be fitted with 0.2mm or 0.3mm needle/nozzle sets for the creation of finer lines or detail. Alternatively it can also be fitted with a 0.8mm neelde/nozzle set which is ideally suited to those wishing to spray slightly thicker mediums, such as with cake decoration. This larger size set up optimises a smoother paint flow and will help to prevent clogging and splatter associated with the use of smaller needle and nozzle.
The pistol grip creates a very natural holding position and reduces hand fatigue which is sometimes associated with pen style airbrushes. This makes it a fantastic airbrush for those new to the hobby as it is so easy to handle and operate.
Simply pull back on the trigger to release air and pull further back to release paint.
Variable action means that the further the trigger is pulled back the more paint is released.
The BARTSHARP Airbrush 116B incorporates a new nozzle and nozzle cap design which has been specifically developed to handle slightly thicker mediums.
These new nozzles are a complete change from the standard design making nozzle change and airbrush cleaning a breeze as they simply push into the airbrush body cap and are held in place by screwing the nozzle cap down. The new design nozzles also have a Teflon bush which prevents paint from escaping from behind the nozzle and is also impervious to highly aggresive paints.
The below image shows how the new design nozzle is much larger compared to a standard airbrush nozzle.

As you would expect we have all of the spare that you will need icluding:
The BARTSHARP Airbrush 116B comes with three fully interchangeable cups:
2cc, 5cc (with push fit lid) and 13cc (with push fit lid)
The air inlet is 1/8BSP which is the most regularly used size for airbrushes and air hoses alike. (BSP means British Standard Pipe and describes the thread pitch whilst 1/8 is equal to 9.35mm (approx))
We have a limited number of these particular airbrushes.
