The Art of the Airbrush

 The Art of the Airbrush

Posted: Thursday, May 17th, 2018

  The airbrushed t-shirt, a dated novelty to some, is still at the heart of a thriving industry in Panama City. With more than 70 years experience between them, local artists Tim Mitchell and Troy Pierce explain how PCB became what Pierce calls “The Airbrush Capital of the World.” (Music: David Szesztay - Beach Party, Podington Bear - Sunset Licensed under CC BY NC 3.0 from freemusicarchive.org.) 

TROY PIERCE

I've been airbrushing for 33 years and to finally be featured on PBS was a full circle moment. Also featured in this episode is a friend Tim Mitchell who insired me to follow this dream of painting shirts on the beaches of Northwest Florida and enjoying every moment of it!
