Eventually the Walkup Brothers set up the aptly named Airbrush Manufacturing Company, which began worldwide distribution of the tool. 32 The first patented airbrush paint atomizing device from 1884. (© Andy Penaluna) The birth of the airbrush The Airbrush Manufacturing Company developed into a business that would distribute worldwide. At precisely 7pm on 6 October 1883 a meeting was called in the offices of local attorney William Lathrop. Following a vote the Rockford Manufacturing Company changed its name to the Airbrush Manufacturing Company and the name ‘airbrush’ was officially born.

There they sold sixty-three paint distributors. By 1885 production of the airbrush was at its peak and Liberty Walkup was able to start marketing and selling his new and much refined single trigger design. 33 Small classes were set up to teach people how to use this new art tool but demand became so great that within three years the Illinois Art School was formed to accommodate all the interested students. However, it was at Chicago’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 that there were suddenly two different types of airbrushes being exhibited.

His initial paint distributing device was just one of his many patented inventions. However, being an eccentric jeweller and part-time inventor, his motive lay in the designing of new devices; making money and spending time developing an idea were never really motivating factors to him. He was no businessman and sold his first design prototype of the paint distributor for a mere $10, but later sold the patent for $700 to the Walkup brothers – quite a lot of money back in 1882.
