There seem to be some big misconceptions about airbrush events. For whatever reason, as time goes on, people develop certain misconceptions, either from ignorance of the topic, or misinformation. 

Today we will be discussing five of the biggest misconceptions about airbrush events. 

1. It’s graffiti!

One of the absolute biggest myths about airbrush art is that it’s just graffiti. Graffiti is a movement that started decades ago and has evolved as time has gone on. It has been developed into current fashion and modern art, etc. 

Airbrush artists can paint in the style of graffiti but airbrush uses a much more precise instrument.

Airbrush art doesn’t use aerosol cans of paint as graffiti does. It requires an airbrush, hence the name. The tool makes all the difference when comparing the two!

Airbrush art might look like graffiti but they are created differently. One with a spray can and the other with an airbrush gun.

2. Airbrush Events are messy!

This misconception stems in some way from the last one. Airbrush art is not graffiti and our artists use an airbrush and our proprietary easel stations. This allows our stations to be tidy and neat. 

Airbrush uses a very direct and clean approach actually very little paint is even used in airbrush art. Paint is not flying through the air. Airbrushed designs can be more fine-tuned then those you would make with aerosol. Plus there are lots of other benefits too. 

You could have an airbrush event inside of a building as there are little to no fumes from the airbrush tool. The type of paint the artists use, dissipates quickly in the air if it doesn’t hit an item’s surface so there is no mess and no smell. In addition to this, the paints are non-toxic and water-based. 

On top of that, Airbrush Events also carries liability insurance for any venues that may request it. We’ve had events in synagogues, Ritz Carlton and Disney properties and have never had any mess issues. 

We are so confident in our artist’s training and precautions that we don’t use tarps or blankets on the floors, the damage would be on us, so we make sure there is absolutely no mess.

3. The designs wash away

Just because the paint used is water-based that doesn’t mean it’s temporary. All of the blends of paint we use stay very cleanly on the items to which they have been applied to. 

Each airbrushed merchandise contains a special label with specialty care instructions. These instructions are very simple, they involve using a dry iron on the design to heat it up and to seal it even more permanently to the item that has been designed. If not done, the paint may fade slightly but certainly not wash away. In fact, your airbrushed merch will not bleed in the laundry. 

Airbrush paint is a little like house paint, if you end up getting house paint on your pants that’s not coming out. So your designs are here to stay!

4. It’ll take too long or be boring

Our trained airbrush artists have a lot of additional experiences that are great for events. They specialize in making the process as fast and as entertaining as possible. 

For most designs, it only takes 2-3 minutes to finish. It’s like watching a chef cook your meal in front of you. The benefit to this is that you can have the artists change the design on the fly, want blue instead of pink? Just ask and they can whip it up, right away. 

5 minutes after being painted, they are already dry and ready to be worn.  Most people end up wearing them right at the event. 

The majority of people who attend our events and have something made, talk about how cool it was to see their design come to life before their very eyes!

5. It’s just for kids

This is possibly the biggest misconception about airbrush art out there! 

Art and cool merchandise combined together plus an entertaining show is some good fun for people of all ages. You’ll love watching your custom hat or tee being created right in front of you. 

Plus the crowds we see at corporate events are often more wild and enthusiastic about airbrush than those at more child-oriented events like bar mitzvahs.

We hope that this list has cleared up all of the major misconceptions that you may have believed about airbrushed art and events.

The party season is fast approaching. Have you decided what you will do for the company Christmas party entertainment?

Having a party around the holiday seasons for your employees builds company morale and is a great time to give back to the team that works hard to make the business successful throughout the year.

Most company Christmas party entertainment involves a DJ. Someone that plays music and encourages the crowd to get up and dance.  But what if your staff aren’t the dancing type? What other fun things can you offer at your company party?

Here are 6 unique ways to entertain the party guests. 

Hire a dance team

Even though we might not be dancers ourselves, most of us can appreciate professional dancers. Plus sometimes, they inspire us to get on the dance floor and do a one, two-step.

Get a virtual reality gaming station

We’ve all heard about the new technology of VR but the majority of us haven’t tried it.

Hire a company that will come and set up virtual reality stations and let your staff play games and ride virtual roller coasters. It’s a great way to get people out of their seats and mingling.

Check out Mobile Gaming Events website for more info.

Get a photo booth

Give us what we really want! Opportunities to take amazing selfies that we can share to our social circles. Let the team play with props and fun costumes while getting their pics taken with proper lights and equipment.

Set up a chalkboard word search

An inexpensive way to add an additional dimension to the entertainment is to put a word search on a big chalkboard or whiteboard next to gathering places, like the bar.

It’s fun to have everyone work on it while they’re waiting in line for their drinks.

Use airbrush artists for the company Christmas party entertainment

Everyone loves swag, little gifts that they can bring home to remember the event.

When you hire airbrush artists, they will come to your party and personalize tees, hats, drawstring bags or a host of other merchandise for each person.

Hire caricature artists

Hiring caricature artists is a guaranteed way to get people out of their seats. Everyone will be thrilled to have a traditional or better yet, digital caricatures of themselves.

With digital caricatures, the full-color caricature is printed on paper that can have the company logo on them. Maybe make it a fun ‘prerequisite’ for everyone to wear theirs to work on a lanyard the next day!

I’ve been working with RichCaricatures for many years and he’s the best out there.
