  1. First, you’re gonna need an airbrush. Iwata (a manufacturer) makes an airbrush that’s well suited to t-shirt application…the Eclipse. It’s a double action (very important) and comes in both a gravity feed, or a siphon feed. I am unsure of the price, for either the airbrush alone, or if a ‘kit’ exists.
    I’d check out Coast Airbrush (www.coastairbrush.com) they’re knowledgeable folks, and very helpful. The magazine Airbrush Action (www.airbrushaction.com) has demo’s by Terry Hill and other well known t-shirt artists. You could check out airbrushtalk.com for archived demo’s.
    Bear Air (www.bearair.com) or Dixie Art supplies (www.dixieart.com) as well as Coast airbrush may have kits for you to buy. The only hitch I can see, is getting a compressor or airsource that will keep up with the necessary (roughly) 60 psi to propel the paint used for this type of painting (something like Createx Textile paint. For the hats you may need to get a catalyst to increase the adhesion of the paint to a synthetic surface (trucker hats are typically never cotton).
    Good luck…now go throw some paint.
