Ok, I'm new with my spray gun...I have a question for you experts

I am doing a cake (tiffany blue) and I read where someone sprayed the color (blue luster dust)..now, do you mix the luster dust in with your color..and if so, how to you prevent clogging???

I liked the shimmery look instead of just the plain blue.

Tell what you think icon_wink.gif

I've heard of mixing vodka and luster dust but personally I think you'll clogg the gun no matter how careful you are, however there's a special airbrush color that you can use, it's from Lucks, the one I've use is called pearl shimmer airbrush color and the best part is that you don't have to dilute anything, just shake, put in your gun and spray thumbs_up.gif

I mix my luster dust with everclear and spray it through my airbrush all the time. You just want to make sure you have a really thin mixture and that you clean your airbrush gun out good after you use it.
