I use the cheapo brushes from the dollar store for applying washes, glue or even lube. They come 10 in a pack and vary in size so you can decide whether to clean them and use again or toss em! Not bad for a dollar.

I save my good brushes from the craft store on the precise painting.

Some department stores carry them too but cost a little bit more.

the cheap ones in ebay , price start at 17 to about 25 dollars with free shipping. top feed , double action , .2 or .3 nozzle , 2cc and up paint cup . as soon as i have the chance I'm going to give it a good workout. i figure if it does not work as advertised I'm out of 20 something bucks. they appear to be pretty decent they even accept iwata parts if you want to change nozzle sizes.

how do you keep the airbrush so steady while hard at work pumping that air pump. must take one heck of coordination.
