Honestly your best bet is to have a sign shop make your vinyl stencil then using transfer paper place it on the surface and airbrush in the paint. Most airbrushers use Createx which has both water and solvent lines. Without practicing brush strokes for a time this is the easiest way. Also what type fonts would you use . You can airbrush a script [takes practice ] but your not going to airbrush a block letter or many other font styles. Vinyl is fine when used as a mask. Many people spray in masks the brush outline each letter ,but again some practice will be required. Best bet it to try some practice lettering on a panel. You can reduce 1-Shot lettering enamel but the overspray is sticky and messy. Without alot of brush stroke practice when you use a mask you can just spray wide open. If you plan on finesse you need a mac valve on the airbrush etc.Most of the water base airbrush paint gets cleared over with uro clear and hardener. Try it with no mask and you will see what I mean. You can also cut out a mask with just the transfer paper but you will score the inner paint with the exacto if not careful. Practice first and you may see what I'm talking about.
