it's easier if you just buy food colors made for airbrushing.

You can color water, just don't color it with gel or paste icing color is better with the liquid colors that you buy at the grocery store.

But colored water wont give you the same results as the airbrush colors.

I was wondering the same thing. The closest place for me to buy airbrush colors is 30 miles away. I drove down there and bought one bottle of color just to practice, but I was wondering if there's someway to make colors on my own.

If you use gel colors you can thin them with alcohol but you have to make them thin (basically tinting the alcohol but not increasing its viscosity significantly). You can use paste colors, but they are harder to dissolve completely and you're more apt to have clogs. You can also use luster dust in alcohol but this is VERY prone to clogging if the consistency isn't right.
