I am new to airbrushing and having just finished reading and laughing to myself about all the accidental Nostril colorings I too have been the victim of blue nostrils! I have one question that has been plaguing me. No matter how I try I always end up with overspray on my table tops and my cake boards. What are you using to mask out your cake boards from overspray? Everytime I see an airbrushed cake example it is nice and neat as a pin and I don't detect the slightest overspray. I am meticulous about trying to keep my board edges clean but just never seem to get them that clean without causing damage to my cakes. TIA
Get a large box and cut one side out of it. Use that side as the top so you have 3 sides and a bottom and place your cake in inside when sparying. This will keep overspray off of your table or counters. I don't put my cake on the final cake board until I'm ready to do the border. I use a board the same size as the cake then when ready to put on the display board just smear some BC in the center and place cake on top. Your display board will always be clean and neat.
Thank you Tiggy2 that makes a lot of sense now. I really appreciate you taking the time to help me out
I got one of those science fair tri-fold boards at Walmart. I put a vinyl cloth on the table and place the tri-fold board around the work area. I've never had a problem with overspray that way. I also take narrow pieces of waxed paper and put them around the bottom of the cake, tucking in slightly, and pull them them when finished. This gives a clean edge to the cake.
