Airbrush history from The Airbrush Museum featuring Paasche Airbrush, Wold Airbrush, Walkup Airbrush, Iwata Airbrush and more!

GOT PATENTS?

We've uploaded over 400 complete patents relating to airbrushes! Every patent has both the illustration as well as the descriptive text. They are assembled in numerical/chronological order with links to all the files as a link to the free viewer you may need to view them. This is a treasure trove for all you airbrush geeks like me...
These are raw .tif files as you would get them from the Patent Office. You may need a plug-in for your browser; a link to the free plug-in is provided. You can access any of them from the The Complete  Airbrush Museum Patents Collection page. 


Liberty Walkups 1884 patent. Jens Paasche's 1905 patent for what would become the Paasche AB. Note the similarities of the basic  design.
Liberty Walkups 1884 "paint distrbuter" patent and Jens Paasche 1905 "A-B" patent are just 2 of over 450 patents we have put online. It's a great treasure trove of information and design ingenuity. There are both pictures and descriptive texts for every patent. We hope you enjoy the fascinating browsing!

    Airbrush History? Museum? Séance Room? What's this nonsense all about? I have part of my airbrush collection in a large glass curio case in the dining room. I jokingly refer to it as "The Airbrush Museum." On the opposite wall is an old sign from a psychic's shop. When people ask how business is, I tell them it's very slow and to make ends meet I have use the dinner table to do "special readings" in order to make ends meet. Special readings are done after you've gulped down a glass of delicious, fresh buttermilk and your destiny is divined from the lines left on the empty glass. What! Doubters beware! The séance part is for fun but I am serious about my airbrush collection. I have been collecting them since the sixties. I used do retouching and photography and started repairing airbrushes for people as most of them weren't too mechanically inclined, especially when it came to Paasche AB's. That's the path that led to this site about airbrushes and airbrush history. I hope you can learn a couple of things while you visit.
