An airbrush has a small bottle, nozzle and an air compressor line that is connected to the back of the nozzle. The airbrush does not always stand on a flat surface without tipping over. A simple airbrush stand is similar to a boot jack. The "V" of the tool holds the bottle while the handle helps to balance the nozzle and air compressor line. Make a simple airbrush holder from a 1/2-inch forked twig and a piece of scrap lumber.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate a 1/2-inch twig/branch with a fork. The branch looks like something that could be used to make an old time sling shot. Cut the arms of the fork from the branch, leaving 3 inches of the fork attached to the twig or branch.

  2. 2

    Cut the arm beneath the fork 8 inches long. The cut twig/branch will look like the letter "Y" when complete.

  3. 3

    Center and place the 2-by-2-by-1-inch scrap lumber under the joint of the "Y." This is where the "V" connects to the bottom leg.

  4. 4

    Nail the "Y" to the wood scrap. Place the paint chamber inside the "V."
