Iwata Revolution HP-AR

Features and Review

  1. Great Iwata quality with low price
  2. Great for beginners – Though the HP-AR isn’t as forgiving about paint consistency as the HP-CR or Eclipse airbrushes it’ll still get the job done.
  3. Sleek design without any ‘stuff’ to get in the way – I’ve known makeup artists who simply slide the airbrush into a small leather glasses case for storage.
  4. The HP-AR is perfect for makeup artists and hobbyists.
  5. Ergonomic Handle
  6. Teflon Needle Packing
