About Us

Staff Image

Around 1970, Rush, Owner of Big Airbrush, picked up his first airbrush and started painting shirts in his parents garage. It wasn't long, before he was taking orders at school for airbrush shirts. Rush watched Ed "Big Daddy" Roth airbrush shirts at a fair and was hooked. He was the first airbrush artist in Ft. Walton Beach. He moved to Hawaii and airbrushed surfboards and T-shirts. Rush was one of the first artist to use an airbrush for every color and developed his hand cut stencil system that is now run on a C02 laser. Rush has a line of silent air compressors and likes to customize airbrushes. Some of the names used over the years were: airbrush by Rush, Rush Air, AirFX and finally, for the last 35 years, Big Airbrush. There are two locations on Panama City Beach at both Walmart Super Centers. We have a location in Ft. Walton Beach and you may have seen our three stores in Orlando. We are the Merchants of Cool! We are open 364 days a year, 8 days a week.
