i know that some companies put out their own small airbrush comp., does size matter. as long as i would be able to control the airflow to the brush on the regulator valve is this correct?

Keep in mind You don't need a Airbrush Compressor to run your airbrush.

I use a Makita Twin stack. I mentioned it because you can use the Makita or any other construction air compressors for other things too and it won't run constantly . But if space or is a concern then the dedicated airbrush compressor may be what you need.

Like Sporty said, any shop compressor, large or small, can be used for an airbrush as well as a dedicated small airbrush compressor. The regulator controls your air pressure. On mine, I have a remote regulator by my spray booth. When airbrushing, I hook my regular 50' shop compressor hose to the regulator with a quick disconnect and I'm airbrushing. All pressure regulation for the airbrush is done right there at the spray booth with the remote regulator.
