This mini airbrush can be used for t-shirt art, cake decorating, make-up, nails, body art, with stencils on a wall or planted pot, whatever!! You can use it even without an air hose!! Having the unit charge via USB is GENIOUS!! No more being tethered to a WALL because you have to plug it in. The kit comes with very nice packaging - nice to give as a gift. This has simple instuctions and can use right out of the box! This unit is very quiet as well.
