I have a Kopykake Airmaster and I love it.It has a controlled action trigger and a knob to control the spray.I only really mix colors when I want a lighter shade of purple like lavender etc..The colors are all pre-mixed you just buy them as is but the must be airbrush colors.Americolor sells a great line and so does chefmaster available at most cake decorating stores online.

i actually have an airbrush city airbrush and i really like it as well. i did a good amount of research before i bought one and this one just seemed right for me. as for mixing colors i never buy the colors premixed, i have all the primary colors and then black (just to use as a darkening agent.) i bought a big thing of dixie cups and use those to mix the colors in. if i want a really light color i will dilute the colors with lemon extract and just make sure i dont use alot of pressure and hold it farther away. my biggest piece of advice is to just get one, and play with it. it will take your decorating to a whole new level.
