Powdered sugar based buttercream takes airbrush color nicely. You can purchase airbrush supplies at a hobby shop or at any number of online resources. I would suggest searching the forums for airbrush information to educate yourself. I know Michaels also sells a couple of airbrushes, but not the compressors. You want a compressor that has low air pressure (under 30 PSI). Airbrush food coloring can be purchased at cake supply stores. If you have more specific questions I'm sure people will be able to help you.

Thank you for the information. I will have to look at Michaels. I live in Hillsdale, Michigan. I noticed you live in Michigan too. Julia
