Ok, can anyone tell me why my Airbrush color is running once it is sprayed onto my cake? I didn't chill my cake so my BC isn't going from cold to hot... PLEASE HELP me... this cake is due in 3 hours and it will need to dry before delivery. Thanks!!!

Sounds like too much color is on at one time. you can try to increase the pressure to make it more misty.

do you mean too much color in the airbrush itself or reapplication before drying too much color?

The spray may be too heavy. Instead of the fine mist, you are getting a wet spray. as it hits the cake it is too wet and runs down.

ok do I turn the "tuner" knob all the way up or do I decrease it?

decrease

and just put less on before stopping, letting it dry completely, and adding a second coat (if needed)

and (sorry) maybe you are holding the airbrush too close to the cake?

thanks for the information to you both, it was the knob, it wasn't turned high enough up to create the "mist"... posting the photo now... it is the bustier.
