Prepared to be blown away with the techniques Cory is sharing with the world. Cory Saint Clair has been considered one of the best automotive mural artists out there today. Cory shows you how to turn a blank white panel into a highly detailed masterpiece, with the use of some simple tools and techniques he spent years perfecting and developing. This is your chance to learn some of the techniques it has taken many artists years to discover. There are many ways to create amazing black & white portraits, but the way Cory Saint Clair teaches is quite unique and very effective. 

Some Highlights Include:
The use of hand made paper stencils
Creating life like textures
Correct paint reduction & PSI
Depth of field & focal points
Creating mid and undertones
Highlights & shadows
Rendering hard & soft edges
"Gilling" to create diffused edges
Creating "washes"
Important uses of razor blades and erasers

Bio: Armed with only an airbrush, Cory Saint Clair is out to rewrite the book on automotive artwork. Cory Saint Clair flunked ninth grade art. Why? For not following the rules. Fifteen years later, not much has changed. The 34-year-old still isnt playing by the book, but ironically, today thats part of what makes him one of the premier airbrush artists in the industry. I would rather punch myself in the face than paint more flames and skulls, jokes Saint Clair, whos been trying to move away from what he feels is clichéd, instead implementing a fine-art approach to his work. Im tired of doing the evil stuff; I want to show that theres a whole other world to this, and that there are real artists in the airbrush game, he says. Aside from painting angels on a Lamborghini Gallardo, he is currently finishing a depiction of the Sistine Chapel on the headliner of his Dodge Magnum. For Saint Clair, it all started with a copy of Airbrush Action and an Iwata airbrush he received for his 12th birthday. Everything I learned was all self-taught, because I couldnt afford to go to an art school, he explains. I learned from magazines. Sometimes we didnt have enough money to get them, but my mom would always find a way to buy Airbrush Action, because she knew that was my only avenue. From the very beginning, Saint Clair was out to earn, and he quickly found a way to flip his passion for profit.  Today Saint Clair works on some of the top builds in the nation, including much of Asantis fleet. A job by the man himself could cost you upwards of $150,000, but as Cory says, If you have money to spend on a Lamborghini, you can afford to paint it to set it apart. Its just paint. Not a bad finish for the kid who failed art.

Great video
  This was my first purchase from Coast Airbrush TV. Cory breaks down what he is doing and explains why he is doing it. I knew of all these texturing effects but had never seen them explained in a way that makes them easy to use. And when I say easy to use I am not taking away from his skill as an artist. What I mean is he shows practical applications for the techniques and demonstrates how to use them in the most efficient and appropriate way. Again great video.
