Style File: Airbrushing is back
It's different strokes for different folks. Believe it or not, airbrushing is back in. In tonight's Style File, 7's Belkys Nerey takes us to a cool new shop where you can brush up on your skills and be a kid again.
WSVN -- Thought airbrush was so out?
"Strawberry": "No, no, it's back, like rollerskating and candy cards."
Airbrushing isn't just for T-shirts that say "Jodi and Johnny forever." It's something that's catching on again for the young and old.
Elizabeth Whitton: "You'd think that with computers and all you'd rather be designing something on a computer, but, you know, you can just do airbrush. It's a lot more fun."
John O'Brien: "I've been loving this ever since the 60s. You can do things with an airbrush that can't be done with pencil, brush or paint."
You can brush up on your airbrushing skills at Pink Ghost on Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale.
Every Saturday, for just $20, "Strawberry" teaches you how to spray away.
"Strawberry": "You can take lace and just spray through lace. You can do free hand strokes, stenciling, all kinds of things."
Your canvas can be T-shirts, tennis shoes and, when you get really good, you can even airbrush a car, but if airbrushing isn't your thing, Pink Ghost offers lots of fun things to keep you young. The store is like a Nintendo game full of designer toys.
Andrea Mendez: "We have Munnies. We have Canties. We also have a lot of Pookie Dookie."
You can buy them or come to a trading party, which we heard gets pretty crazy with young collectors!
Elizabeth Whitton: "It's just great. It's a great social event."
Pink Ghost also offers sculpting classes, a DJ and even a place for bands to rehearse.
Andrea Mendez: "We like to have events during the week. We have karoake. We like to have bands, open mike night."
But for the real fun, we recommend airbrushing in style. The store is owned by two sisters who fell in love with designer toys, and then they kept adding other fun things.
